Remembering back to my childhood fridge, we always had grape jelly and, occasionally, peach preserves, orange marmalade or a berry jam on hand. I grew to prefer the berry varieties, yet recently while shopping at Kroger, I found Mango, Guava & Passion Fruit Preserve by Private Selection™. I tell you with every bite my tastebuds are sent on a tropical vacation!

If you like tropical fruits, you should try this preserve. The ingredient list is short and simple, but the little 10 oz. jar packs a full body punch! It doesn’t take much either because a little goes a long way.

How can you add this sweet goodness to your life?

  1. Spread on hot, buttered biscuits, toast, naan, muffins, pancakes, or favorite bread
  2. Use to transform the traditional peanut butter and jelly sandwich or flatbread wrap sandwich
  3. Spread on a cookie or use as filling for layered cake
  4. Mix in with plain greek yogurt to replace store-bought varieties or serve as dip with fruit (approx. 1-1 1/2 T. preserve per 8 oz. of yogurt for breakfast and maybe a little more for fruit dip)
  5. Stir a small spoonful into cottage cheese
  6. Dollop on a cracker topped a slice/cube of cheese
  7. Make celery logs with peanut butter, preserve, raisins, and sunflower or pumpkin seeds
  8. Whip up a tropical vinaigrette for salads (1 part vinegar to 3 parts olive oil. Then add preserve a small spoonful at a time, depending on your desired level of sweetness and consistency. Salt and pepper to taste.)

Now, go pick up a jar and get on with your tropical eating adventure! Enjoy!
