Gin In My Jam
This is not your average jelly. It's an addiction. Morning coffee with Rose's Lime spread on toast or, I like it on Finn Crisp, is like a little slap to your face. Bright, sweet and with just a whiff of G&T about it. You know, that lovely lime aftertaste...It seems to go on forever.
A breakfast of strong coffee, eggs, bacon -- it's all so... protein. Rose's Lime Marmalade cuts the animal fat with a beautiful sweetness that stops you chewing the moment it hits. You're like, "What is this? Where's it coming from? Did someone put gin in my jam?"
Reasonably priced and God knows the stuff you can do with it outside of spreading it on Finn Crisp or toast. A marinade seems logical. Maybe even a dollop in a G&T. Just under $6 at Myers of Keswick. That's a no brainer for any New Yorker. Amazon has it as well. Like most things British, this was stumbled upon. No PR hack pitching it or marketing of any kind. Just another 'particular' something in a world offering universal... bleh.
