Aunt Ruth’s Strawberry Rhubarb Conserve produced by Goot Essa is an all-natural, home-made conserve unique to our Amish heritage. The taste of this conserve is of strawberry and rhubarb, combined with hints of orange and lemon without being overly sweet. The purplish red color adds eye appeal while the pieces of fruit provide a unique mouth feel. This preserve pairs with our traditional cheeses, the hard- textured cheeses, and semi-soft cheeses, and may bring out subtle flavors of these cheeses which may not be readily apparent. This jam is also a unique experience on hot biscuits or warm toast.
The Amish people often combine what seem to be widely different tastes in order to produce an entirely new experience. Many of these recipes were developed from the desire to save fruits grown in the family garden. These preserves are used as gifts and are highly prized among families.
The strawberries for Rebecca’s Strawberry Cranberry Preserve are purchased from a local Amish farmer while the rhubarb is grown in neighbor’s gardens. All Goot Essa condiments are produced in kitchens inspected and approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture.
