Peter Lowell’s is one of very few restaurants that serves kiwi preserves with your breakfast toast. It has become a trademark of sorts. I personally had never tasted kiwi preserves until I started eating at PL’s. The reason we do this is not only because the preserves are insanely delicious, but also because we are blessed by a bountiful crop of them every winter at Two Belly Acres, the restaurant’s farm out off Green Valley Road.
Last year we missed the harvest due to a late frost followed by an extreme spike in heatwave temperatures that basically fermented the fruits in their skins! So this year we were extra careful to watch the weather and the ripening stage of the fruit. The result was tremendous. Our photographer, Dawn Heumann, spent a couple of mornings with Natalie Goble, our Two Belly Acre farmer, capturing the harvest and the making of PL’s delicious preserves. Enjoy the visual process and come in and eat breakfast soon!
