Christine Ferber’s Alsace damson jam – quetsches d’Alsace – is a richly fruity jam that pays homage to the region’s traditional damson tarts.
Damsons are part of the plum family. They are very similar in colour and flavour, though damsons tend to be richer in flavour. Spread the rosy-purple jam on toast, croissants or scones for breakfast or afternoon tea.
Experience the magic blends of fresh Alsace fruits, flowers and herbs with Christine Ferber's jams. The seasonal fruits are harvested locally from the fields, mountains and forests, and cooked daily in very small batches – never more than four kilograms together in one of her copper cauldrons. All are produced in their kitchen in the small village Niedermorschwihr, nestled in the heart of the vineyards in Alsace. And Christine rises at 5.30am every morning to tend to the fruit herself. Availability of the jams varies season by season.
Christine Ferber is France's 'Queen of Confitures'. A world-renowned master patissière, Christine Ferber has worked with Alain Ducasse (who serves her jams in his restaurants), the Troisgrois family, and Pierre Hermé, amongst others.
