Ultimate Taste Test 4.0-284

weet but with a kick at the end-

- Jams are unique and very good"

 - Ultimate Taste Test 4.0 Foodie

The Fruit Garden debuted in UTT3, and most of the foodies there raved about it (Read: The Fruit Garden as the Best Fruit Jams in Manila). We received Fruit Garden Jam as gifts last Christmas, and we loved it.

In UTT4, they introduced an innovative line of Jam flavors. Most foodies raved about the Strawberry Ginger, Mango Coriander, and their premium jam -- Orange Whisky, made with the Scottish Glenlivet whisky, which is 12 years old!

To make jams, fruits and sugar are cooked together, so adding an exotic ingredient like ginger, coriander or whisky is quite tricky. But when balanced perfectly, it enhances the overall taste so that you won't get tired of it and, as the UTT 4.0 foodie commented, it does give the jam a nice kick in the end.

Congratulations to The Fruit Garden for their consistent product innovation -- proudly made in the Philippines!

The Story of The Fruit Garden - Home Made Jam
by Pierre Marmonier

The Fruit Garden (TFG) company mission is to offer to the consumers all-natural, high quality fruit products, using local resources.

Inspired by French cooking tradition, the company introduced its first product line: Luxury Jam.

Cooked in small batches in copper cauldrons (like how it used to be done in France years ago), the TFG jam does not use any preservatives -- only natural fruits and sugar.

Three main jam collections were introduced last year: Mango, Strawberry and Pineapple; and new flavors have been added earlier in 2010: Orange Marmalade, Guava.

For the UTT 4.0, 7 new flavors were exclusively introduced: Orange Whisky, Dalandan, Strawberry Ginger, Peppered Pineapple, Mango Coriander, Mango Banana and Pineapple Banana.

TFG jams are available at the following locations: Legazpi Sunday morning market, Mickey’s Delicatessen on Jupiter Street, Bacchus Epicerie at Rockwell Power Point Mall, The Market Deli on Leviste St., Salcedo Village, Coffee Beanery 5/F Shangri-La Plaza…

Yay TFG Strawberry Ginger Jam! My clear favorite among all their samples during UTT 4.0 - unfortunately it was not yet for sale at that time or I would have gotten me a couple of them big jars. Went to their booth last night at the Eastwood City Mall Gourmet Food Market, but still nothing for my strawberry ginger fix. Got a nice fallback though with their strawberry banana and strawberry mint variants. C'est tout simplement magnifique, vos confitures, Pierre!

Thanks a lo for your comments,we were waiting for Anton's post to start the sales : HERE WE ARE. Our new flavors will be introduced this coming SUNDAY at Legazpi market, we will have the winning flavors of the UTT4.0 : Orange whisky, strawberry ginger, Mango coriander, peppered pineapple, but also Mangosteen and Mulberry. Hope you come to visit us. Merci!

Finally! Hope you can also have it available at the Eastwood City Mall Weekend Gourmet Market which is more accessible to yours truly. Merci aussi pour vos confitures merveilleux!

congrats ria and pierre!

We love their jams! Specially the Orange Whisky! And the price is reasonable considering it's specially home made. Pierra and Andrea are nice too! Congrats guys! ^_^
