I have vivid memories of having eaten one of the most magical Orange Marmalade, brought from Europe by my Uncle. It was bittersweet, had the most lovely flavor of oranges and slices of Orange in it. Unfortunately, it also made my taste buds totally against the Indian Jams!! I found them to be too sweet & full of false flavoring. I never had an Orange Jam or Marmalade by Kissan or any Indian Brands for sure after that!! Then, about a year ago, through one of our food groups, I got a jar of Fig Contreau Jam made by Apeksha Jain, who had just started a range of Fresh, homemade, preservative-free jams called 'The Gourmet Jar'. One spoonful and I was hooked. I asked her if she made Orange Marmalade, she said yes but they were not the sweet ones but the bittersweet one she makes. I said ofcourse!! that's what I want!!!!
I loved the Orange Whiskey Jam from her range and since then only 'The Gourmet Jar' Jams are brought in our home. The Jams are fresh, are not to sweet and have a wonderfully natural flavor of the fruits intact. It's become my staple breakfast in summers - my choice of TGJ jam for the day, toast of bread & tea (and maybe an omelette).
