Rosehip Jam – Pacas from José Angel López in Santa Bárbara, Honduras
This lot of mainly Pacas (and some Bourbon) varieties is grown by our dear friend Benjamin Paz, at his farm in Las Vegas municipality, Santa Bárbara in Honduras. Usually, harvest is completed around March in the country, but a cooling effect with the mountainous terrain interacting with Yojoa Lake slows ripening to a crawl in this area – It’s not uncommon to be picking there in June! This late harvest has elegant ripe pear flavour and sticky praline sweetness.
