Five Spice Plum

This ganache uses plum and spice blend to achieve bold flavors. By Jimmy MacMillan, JMPurePastry, Chicago, IL.

“Our ideal ratios create confections that have intense flavor and can be enjoyed by all. Working without dairy does this and provides a full range of artistry for the chocolatier.”

  • 28.2 oz/800 g 68% chocolate
  • 2.8 oz/80 g trimoline
