Robertson's Classic Apricot Jam
Description: Manufacturer: Robertson's / Food Type: Jam.
I tend not to eat a lot of sweet things but do have a soft spot for toast or breads and jam. The type of bread and the type of jam vary and I have set ideas about what goes with what. For example, I like to eat brown seeded breads with marmalade or blackcurrant jam. But for raspberry jam, it has to be scones or thick white bread. Every now and then, I have croissants and they have to be eaten with apricot jam!
A 340g jar of this jam will cost around £1.20 but can sometimes be found on offer. I recently picked up 2 jars of jam from the Robertson's range for just £1.50 so it is worth keeping your eyes open for a bargain. You can find these jams in most supermarkets.
The jam is a thick, glossy golden colour and has a deliciously aroma which you can smell as soon as you open the jar. It tastes delicious, sweet and fruity with the traditional taste which is particular to apricot jam. It has a sweeter taste than many jams, but the authentic taste of apricots means that it isn't over sweet or sickly.
If you are a fan of apricot jams then this one is pretty good, it isn't the best that I have had but for the price (especially bought on offer), it offers decent value for money for a sweet and tasty treat so is well worth trying.
Whether eaten with toast for breakfast or with croissants, bread or scones, this jam is delicious, it is also great for baking and using as a filling for cakes. I will buy this again and definitely recommend it!
I love jam but when it comes to the stuff I'm a bit of a creature of habit really. I usually opt to buy strawberry jam and end up browsing other flavours but sticking to the flavour that I know and trust so well!
However staying with my friend at the moment, the other morning she popped out to get some much needed essentials and she knew I wanted some jam to go on my toast. To my disappointment I spotted she got this! Yep I was rally gutted! Saying that though up until that point in my life I'd never tasted it and decided that I simply must whilst I had the opportunity!
340g glass jar with a screw on/off lid to the top of it which is white and black striped. On the front label I'm told 'Spread a little'''' Robertson's, Apricot Jam and there is a picture of an apricot on there. On the back of the jar other information includes ingredients being listed, I'm told it is suitable for Vegetarians, the size is stated (as I've listed already), a full nutritional rundown chart is given and contact details for Robertson's are listed.
The Jam Itself:
Set when you first open it this is really best kept refrigerated otherwise it melts rather badly at room temperature. Golden in colour and really smooth this sticky jam is just so sweet and does taste of apricots though for me really does taste far too sweet although naturally so to be fair to it but it really isn't my scene one bit. I found it to melt to a syrupy water when put on top of warm/hot toast and it really didn't have any fruity lumps in it to at least give it a slight texture.
Being Robertson's I expected this to be really highly flavoursome but due to it's overall sweetness and water like consistency I was left rather disappointed by this offering.
I felt like I was drinking syrup on toast and although it doesn't melt so badly on just bread. .....overall I really don't like this sticky mess sadly so for me....... I'm off to get some strawberry jam and sticking with the flavour that I know best from now on!
