* Very Good Preserves. I mix a 1/4 cup of the Blackberry LC Foods Preserves with 1 cup Smaps cereal, 1/2 cup pecans, 1 egg, 3 tbsp. butter, 12 drops EZ sweetz, 1/4 cup Walden Farms Pancake syrup, 1/4 cup heavy cream, and 1/3 cup carbquik to make low cab breakfast bars. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes on greased cookie sheet. Yum Yum Plan on trying the peach next.
* I ordered the Cranberry preserves and was excited when they arrived. I immediately opened the box and the jar and tried it out. It SMELLED absolutely heavenly; however, be forewarned: THIS PARTICULAR PRESERVE IS SO TART AS TO BE INEDIBLE BY ITSELF! I used it as an ingredient in a recipe so it worked fine for that thankfully; however, I was initially planning on spreading it on a piece of low-carb bread from time to time as a treat. I think the only way I will be able to eat this stuff plain as "jam" is to add either a few drops of liquid sucralose (EZ-Sweetz) or liquid stevia to it to sweeten it up. Although I buy, like and use a lot of LC Foods products, I thought others should know about this one. I do plan on ordering and trying other flavors of their preserves in the future so this one very disappointing experience isn't going to stop me from trying others.
* The cranberry preserves are now my go-to for cranberry sauce at the holidays. I can add heaping amounts to my turkey dinner without putting a dent in my low-carb lifestyle. I disagree with the other reviewer who gave this one a one-star review; the flavor is tart but not any more tart than the homemade cranberry sauce I made before I discovered this. In my opinion, it's perfect and delicious, whether eaten by itself or used as a baking ingredient. My mom loved it too; in fact, I had trouble keeping her from emptying the whole jar during our Thanksgiving dinner.
