The sweetness of bottled fruit makes it the perfect pairing for soft cheese or an hors d’oeuvres platter.
Ausnat Fruits’ collection includes:

The above products are delicious served on their own or as an accompaniment to soft cheese. Brandied apricots are also a way to enhance the taste of your seasoned meats. Simply mince apricots and add to the seasoning. But don’t waste the syrup! It makes a wonderful marinade or a topping for ice cream.
- Prunes in port
This product will impress gourmets as a tantalising dessert served with whipped cream or ice cream. Or for a savoury flavor hit at your next barbecue, partially cook sausages, slice in half, fill with drained prunes, wrap in bacon and finish cooking.
