Nothing says summer time—or a minimum of hotter climate—like watermelon: the fruit, the flavour, the tradition. It brings to thoughts recollections of extra carefree days. It is a reminder that regardless of how lengthy the winter, spring and summer time are positive to observe.
2020 has been fairly a journey to this point, and I am positive the enjoyable’s not over but. However even in unprecedented and unsure occasions like these, there will likely be distinctive moments of discovery and pleasure. Sitting out within the inexperienced grass and opening up this jar for the primary time was one such second for me.
I am not saying this product is so good that it’s going to universally present transcendent moments of bliss for all who partake of its goodness, nevertheless it may do this for some. I am positive a number of of you may have tried one other model of watermelon jam, jelly, or fruit unfold earlier than, be it home made or some unique model I’ve by no means heard of. However this was a primary for me. Depart it to Dealer Joe’s.
It is precisely as candy as I need it to be. It could be just a little too candy for some and never candy sufficient for others, however to me, it’s juuust candy sufficient to be a dessert-like deal with, however not so syrupy that I really feel a sudden urge to compulsively brush my enamel instantly after consuming.
It really tastes like watermelon, by advantage of “natural watermelon puree” being the primary ingredient. “Cherry juice” is fairly excessive up on the checklist, too, and it gives a refined kick of sweet-tart sass, however you’d by no means mistake the dominant taste of this fruit unfold. It is completely delectably watermelony.
There are not any seeds or grit right here. Fruit pectin and watermelon puree yield a really clean consistency. So far as thickness goes, I feel it is on par with a strawberry jelly sort vibe, however once more, with no seeds, fruit bits, or chunks of any sort. A model with little items of actual watermelon could be attention-grabbing, however I am not complaining concerning the texture right here in any respect. The smoothness works completely.
I’ve tried it straight from the jar in addition to on toast with just a little cream cheese. I am pondering there must be a strategy to incorporate this product right into a watermelon-flavored smoothie, however I am undecided what else I might throw in there. If we had any vanilla wafer cookies available, I might strive dunking them straight into this fruit unfold. A topping for vanilla ice cream? Plain yogurt? Prospects abound.
Should you like the flavour of watermelon with only a trace of additional tartness and sweetness, I do not see the way you’d hate this product. I feel it was $2.99 for the jar…? It is distinctive and really tasty. I give Dealer Joe’s Natural Watermelon Fruit Unfold 4 stars. Sonia will go along with 4 and a half.
