Chocolate, Coffee + Kumquat Spread

MADE BY LEMON BIRD HANDMADE JAMS IN WRIGHTWOOD, CALIFORNIA

MOUTH SAYS...

Nutella + us = true love. But now that we've tasted this incredible combination of candied kumquats, dark chocolate and coffee, we're rethinking our commitment.  

Lemon Bird's products are truly small batch, made from the best (and closest) raw ingredients that L.A.-based maker Amy Deaver can find. This spread is a neighborhood collaboration of sorts. Deaver uses a slow drip method to infuse apple pectin with beans from Ritual Coffee Roasters. Thin slices of kumquat are candied and mixed with the coffee pectin and sugar, then with dark chocolate from Chocovivo (and you know how we feel about Chocovivo). 

The spread is intensely chocolatey, with just a hint of coffee, punctuated by sweet-tart notes of kumquat. We swoon over every spoonful.
