Review and Giveaway of SchoolHouse Kitchen Spreadable Fruit

Ask the hub or my kids: I'm a saucy girl.  As important as the dish I'm eating (or making) is the sauce I put on it, whether it's sweet or savory.  So imagine my excitement when I got the opportunity to review a series of spreadable fruit spreads--each of which has an herb or spice partnered with it.  As the website points out, "Wherever they are, the fruit drives and the herb rides shotgun. Enjoy the ride!"

SchoolHouse Kitchen sent me Fruit x4 which is a 4-pack of their low-sugar spreadable fruit.  These are jam-like spreads that contain all natural ingredients.  For instance, Strawberry Black Peppercorn (my current favorite!) contains strawberries, sugar, cranberries, lemon juice and black pepper. That's it!  Now I have to admit that the "gentle infusion" of black peppercorn worried me before I tried it.  After I tried it, I was sold on the herbal afternote paired with fruit.  It is fairly light and enhances the flavor of whatever you eat with the spread.  For my favorite, the pepper adds kind of an 'up' note at the end of your bite.  (I know this doesn't make sense, just trust me!)  Let's just say that my family ate a whole loaf of banana bread because it was SO GOOD with butter and Strawberry Black Peppercorn.  As for the other flavors, my second fave is Peach Rosemary but they all are yummy and worth hoarding sharing.

If the products aren't enough to gush about, SchoolHouse Kitchen is a family-owned business that started with Patsy Smith's recipes and extended to include her children in various positions in the growing company.  I love that the mission of SchoolHouse Kitchen is "to raise funds for educational organizations and to make [Patsy Smith's] gourmet products available to more people" Even better, their purpose is two-fold: 
  • We create original, all-natural, specialty food products of superior quality.
  • Profits from the sale of our gourmet goods enable us to support educational causes. 
Between the mouth-watering condiments and the company's giving-back goals, SchoolHouse Kitchen is a business venture that I'm very comfortable supporting.  And did I mention how good their spreadable fruit is?

SHOP: SchoolHouse Kitchen also offers mustards, dressings and marinades as well as chutneys.  Ordering a Festive Foursome or one of the Trios is a great way to introduce your favorite foodie to the creative sauces of SchoolHouse Kitchen--say for Mother's Day or Father's Day!
