Sublemonal Message + San Joaquin Gold

After a spoonful of this jam you are left in amazement as your mind races to catch up with your taste buds. The way the Meyer lemon and ginger work together is a mind boggling treat.

This jam packs quite the punch, and in searching for a cheese to pair with Sublemonal Message, opt for a cheese that won’t get knocked down. Fiscalini Farm’s San Joaquin Gold, an aged, raw, cow’s milk cheese fits the bill. San Joaquin Gold tastes of roasted nuts, pineapple and has a nice salted butter finish. After eating this pairing, one feels like they have just left on a sun kissed trip to the Hawaiian Islands. Anyone up for a Mai Tai?
