Fruit dishes are often seen as the after-dinner treat, sweetened up and ready to pair with coffee at the end of a meal. But there’s more to fruit than meets the dessert table. Fruit has an immense capacity to pair with savory flavors as well as sweet, getting a dose of spiky heat from chile peppers or embracing their sour sides with vinegary accents. When you learn how to use the inherent flavors in spices to unlock sweet and savory flavors in fruit  without relying solely on sugar or salt, you’ll open your fruit drawer to a world of possibilities!
