I love jam in each and every form. On a bread slice, in a parantha roll, grilled jam sanwich, on top of a muffin and on its own too. Since childhood I’ve been having mixed fruit jam, but this time I wanted to try a different flavor. I picked up Dana Apricot Preserve for two reasons. One, I loved the Mixed Fruit Spread from Dana and two, its warm golden color.

My Experience with Dana Apricot Preserve
I love apricots and I had to get this jam as soon as I spotted it. And I am glad that I did. It is warm golden colored jam that has small chunks of apricot inbetween. It spreads really easily on the bread without any tugging and pulling. I mean it does not become hard even on refrigerating and retains its consistency at all temperatures. I have tried putting it in a refrigerator as well as leaving it on the shelf. Absolutely no change in the texture.
It tastes good too. A little tangy and a little sweet, just like apricots. Though the taste is a little familiar to orange jam. The only thing that disappointed me was that it is not sugar free (but the marmalades never are). It contains artificial sugar. Although its my fault that I bought it without checking, I was expecting it to be sugar free just like the Mixed Fruit flavour.
Overall, I like it a lot. I am very eager to try other flavors as well from this brand.
