Fragata Fruit Delights are high quality fruit jams produced from a recipe dating back to 1834. Fragata Fruit Delights are made with all natural ingredients. The jams are sweetened with sugar not high fructose corn syrup! A huge plus in my book. Each variety of Fruit Delights contains less than 10 ingredients. The Peach Fruit Delight, contains only 4 ingredients. This means you are getting the fruit in its most natural state. It contains nothing artificial, just wholesome fruit. Fragata Fruit Delights are made from uncooked fruit. This ensures the fruit doesn’t breakdown in the cooking process. As a result you will experience whole chunks of fruit in each bite.
- Seville Orange Marmalade
- Fruit of the Forest- a blend of raspberries,strawberries,blackberries, and blueberries
I was sent several to sample. All of them are amazingly tasty. I had a preconceived notion , peach would be my favorite. Peach was delicious, but Fruit of the Forest is my number one choice. It’ s a perfect blend of all my favorite berries! I used it on top of waffles with a little whipped cream, as a dessert. Wow was it good!!
On the Fragata website, I discovered this recipe for Thumbprint Cookies:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Cream together brown sugar, margarine, and shortening. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Beat egg white slightly; dip balls into egg white and roll in finely chopped pecans. Place cookies 1-inch apart on ungreased baking sheet; press thumb deeply into each center. Bake until light brown; about 10 minutes. Immediately remove from baking sheet and cool thoroughly. Fill each thumbprint with Fragata Raspberry Jam.
The recipe calls for raspberry, but I used all of the flavors. I was hoping to take a picture of my thumbprint cookies but the kids made them disappear , before I could get to it. As I was thinking of another way to utilize the Fruit Delights for my review. My 4 year old came up to my side in the kitchen. He said, “Mom can you make me a peanut butter and jam sandwiches with it?” It just goes to show you can use, Fruit Delights, in many different ways. Sometimes the simple things in life, like a peanut butter sandwich made with all natural Fruit delights!
