We have been playing around with our own old fashioned cola flavors since we heard the Southern story about coke + peanuts. Before modern day brands changed the recipes, colas were more of a medicinal tonic and tasted as such! Our cola syrup has coriander, citrus peel, bitter orange rind, cinnamon, star anise and lavender! It's a warm deliciously spiced flavor and we paired it with plums to make this jam. Plums were actually initially used to make Dr. Pepper back in the day.
It pairs well with goat cheese (pictured here on a piece of sourdough from Gulf Coast Sourdough topped with plum cola jam and pears before pressing it in a cast iron skillet), on pork, over waffles or drizzled over a sweet potato!
We've just added a limited amount of jars to our online shop for purchase!
You can find our jams out at the farmer's markets with us or online. If you've had a chance to pick it up before we'd love to see how you're using it! Use hashtag #theurbancanningco and find us on Instagram @theurbancanningco. To see a list of our markets and events head over to our Markets + Events page! Cheers!
