Genius pear and chocolate jam from Fakenham Market

Pear and chocolate make excellent bedfellows, but it takes a rare talent to manifest this combination in a jar of jam. We found this one at the Country Market stall at Fakenham’s regular Thursday market.

When I first bought a jar a few months ago, one of the ladies on the stall confided there was a friendly competition among their group of producers to develop the most unusual flavours. This is reflected in their diverse selection of jams, chutneys, sauces and cakes. They have all the classics you’d expect, but often surprise with something new and delicious, like this pear and chocolate.

It is exceedingly good spread thickly on homemade scones, baked to my mum’s recipe.

After polishing off the first jar in short order, we didn’t see it on the stand for a while, so Michelle put in a special request, which they were kind enough to fulfill.

The label lists the producer as ‘K Cuttle’. Your best bet is to stop by their stall on Thursday morning during the market.

    1. It is. There’s something about the combination of flavours and textures. The amount of chocolate is actually quite small, but it really works. Thanks for posting a comment.
