Local Treats

Last Christmas i found some really good local products

If you remember i bought mangosteen jams for my relatives when i visited them last October. I loved the jam so much that i decided to buy Kablon Farms’ other products as holiday gifts.

I thought they were all pretty good but the Guava Jelly would have to be my favorite! The consistency and sweetness make for a perfect spread!

I also found another great local treat while scouting for gift goodies

I remember hubby telling me a story (during one of the rare occasions that he seems to want to share) about how his grandmother used to make delicious pickled mangoes.

When i saw this, i immediately had to buy it thinking how he’d love the surprise.

He loved it so much he opened the bottle as soon as he saw the treat and had to stop himself from finishing its contents in one sitting.

I, on the other hand, had to think twice about giving the pickled mangoes a try as i could only think of how sour it would taste, but to my surprise it was the perfect blend of sweet and sour in a crisp slice of green mango!

…now tell me you’re not salivating!

  4. These jams sound so great! I recently had kaya in SE Asia, but I think that is a bit different than the coconut jam you have there. I love guava jam! They make the best ‘goiaba’ jam in Brazil. Smooth and sweet just like you mentioned. The pickled mango is intriguing. I’m not sure I’ve had anything like that before.
