Each jar of Harvest Song preserves begins with the fertile ground of the Ararat Valley; the most succulent fruits, vegetables and natural ingredients are vacuumed sealed in glass containers to preserve the taste and the nutritional value and quality of the food and each jar has its own sun-dried, handmade rice paper from Kathmandu, Nepal.
Apricot Preserve is made with sweet sun-ripened apricots and is a NASFT Award Winner for 2006. This preserve pairs well with Italian Parmiggiano Reggiano or with a French triple cream cheese, like Brillat-Savarin.
Harvest Song, a partnership of James Tufenkian and Sylvia Tirakian, based in New York, is a specialty food company that imports fresh, natural gourmet food products directly from Armenia. They created a line of all-natural gourmet preserves, pectin free, and without additives or preservatives. These Gourmet Preserves taste like they were just picked from the garden. That's because farming in Armenia, a small country situated between the Mediterranean, Caspian and Black Seas is not yet industrialized like most modern countries of the world. The fruit is sun ripened and immediately picked and prepared for preserving, so the vitamins and nutrients are not lost before the canning process.
