Jams are not just for breakfast toast anymore...

UTT The Fruit Garden Tropical Paradise

I wasn't into jams as I really don't have a sweet tooth. I would sporadically buy a jar or two from the supermarket, wherein I would consume only about a quarter of the bottle until it would meet its expiration date.

The Fruit Garden, a product of Pierre Marmonier utilizing local fruits, has been very active in participating at local food bazaars and tasting events. Even though I've seen them far too often, it was only when I got to taste these jams at a cocktail party that presented them as stars on savory dishes that I truly enjoyed and appreciated them.

The Fruit Garden Assorted Belgian Chocolate Pralines
Belgian Chocolate Squares with Jam Fillings

They also offer Belgian pralines impregnated with indulgent jam fillings -- a collaboration with Risa Chocolates. My favorite is the Orange with Orange jam fillings.

The Fruit Garden Country Pate on Toast with Strawberry Black Pepper Jam
Country Pâté on Toast with Strawberry Black Pepper Jam

The Fruit Garden Tuna Tartar with Nori Strips and Mango Ginger Jam in Ceramic Spoon
Tuna Tartar with Nori Strips and Mango Ginger Jam

These hors d'oeuvres were truly a revelation. I finally saw how I can enjoy these sweet delectable treats, without leaving too saccharine a taste in my mouth. Paired with different savory dishes, these jams were pretty remarkable.

Discovery Set: 6 pieces of 30 gram bottles of assorted luxury jams

Flavors of The Fruit Garden include unique combinations such as Mango Durian, Mango Chocolate, Pineapple Coco Rhum, Strawberry Mint, Strawberry Banana, Lychee Berry Rose, etc. Now, they also have new ones like the Calamansi Brandy and Raspberry. Every flavor is worth a try!
