REVIEW – Great Value Apricot Pineapple Preserves

Great Value Apricot Pineapple Preserves

I picked these up at the store because I had never seen this particular combination before.  I always pause around the aisle that contains the jelly & jam because my son-in-law really likes jelly, so I am always looking for something different to offer to him if he is at the house.  When I saw apricot pineapple, I was intrigued.

Yes — this is yummy on whole wheat toast.  I think anyone would be delighted with this product as a basic topping on toast.  I was wondering about a couple of other ways this combo might be used.

I have a basic chicken recipe that requires the boneless breasts be flattened, then they are sauteed in the pan before some chicken broth and wine is added.  I wonder if a couple of tablespoons of these preserves with a 1/2 teaspoon of soy would give the entree a bit of an Asian flair.  It could then be served on a rice pilaf with a sprinkling of sliced scallions.

Another idea would be to make up a sauce for grilled wings and include the preserves as the sweetener.  Drop the hot wings directly into the sauce from the grill and then remove and drain.  This is a variation on the numerous recipes for wing sauce.

I’ll probably pick up another jar of this product.  The combination of sweet pineapple with the more hearty apricot flavor was right on.
