Fruit spread by Peter Kunze

Billy and Peter go way, way back. And ever since they first crossed paths at Nuremberg’s Essigbrätlein, Billy has refused to buy his fruit spread from anyone other than Peter. What makes it so special? Well, it’s simple: Peter only uses the best produce. Sure, that’s what it says on the label of the cheapest, bottom-shelf jam as well, but with everything we know about price, taste and availability of high-quality produce, we can assure you that Peter’s is the real deal. We’ve picked out our two favourites from his assortment and we’re sure you’re bound to love them, too.

“Mieze Schindler” strawberry

Mieze Schindler is an old variety of strawberry, first cultivated by Otto Schindler in 1925. Thanks to the small amount of sugar used in this fruit spread, it is rather runny and works best when mixed with yoghurt or curd cheese. If you want to use it on bread, just store it in the fridge and it’ll set.
80% fruit, 20% sugar


Hand-picked blueberries from Bavaria, what’s not to love? A fruit spread as pure and delightful as it gets. For your sandwich, breakfast yogurt and granola or any dessert.

Quince Jam

Peter Kunze has picked five different types of quince from his very own trees and, with the addition of just a little sugar, turned them into a golden festival of flavours!
Peter recommends enjoying this jam with good cheese – ideally mozzarella from your trusted deli. Or add it to wild game stock to round off your game gravy with a lovely tartness and just the right amount of sweet. In the warmer months, try adding sparkling wine or water to a spoonful of quince jam in a tall glass for an amazingly refreshing drink.

Bitter orange jam

Sicily’s bitter oranges are all about those bitter notes, no doubt. Nonetheless, this particular batch secured by Peter also boasts surprising acidity and scintillating freshness. Peter recommends you try it with cheese or add to a sauce. Billy, ever the contrarian, thinks you should just pile it onto bread real thick.

Tangerine jam 

The intensity of these Sicilian tangerines is unparalleled. They’re Peter’s version of the Proustian madeleines and take him straight back to the days of his childhood. You’ll want to spoon this jam right of the glass, using a large spoon of course.
