Pete made kalamansi juice this weekend from the fruit you sent and it tasted just as good as the flavor I first fell in love with over 40 years ago in the Philippines. There is something so refreshing and so soul-nurturing about that taste and that smell that just sends me to a state of nirvana. Thank you SO much for those jade gems!
By the way, Pete keeps the skins and rubs them on his fingernails like a cleanser. It works beautifully! Nothing ever wasted. 🙂
As we say in the Philippines, Salamat!
I was recently invited to spend a couple of months in WI during the summer and prior to leaving I knew I would be attending various homes for parties. I don't ever go to a party empty-handed; I always bring something for the host/hostess. So I purchased 12 jars of Calamondin Jam as hostess gifts for each of the 12 people I was going to meet and I am so glad I did. First, each jar was perfectly wrapped for shipping. I didn't have to pack it in my luggage. Second, It only took a couple of days to get to where it was going. Third, most people have not ever heard of the calamondin orange therefore it gives me great pleasure to share it with friends and family.
Both grandfathers received this wonderful jam along with home-made old-fashioned tea cakes. Their response.....delicious! They were very happy the jam was not "too sweet" but just right and full of flavor. Thank you!
This jam is absolutely delicious, a happy start to any day at breakfast, or as a delicate cake filling, among other possibilities. It spreads easily, and doesn't separate. The calamondin flavor is uniquely special in contrast to traditional marmalades.
THE BEST JAM ever!
I have made calamondin jelly for years..this particular jelly is JUST right..not too runny and not too thick. YUMMY
