I love cedar tea so was looking forward to trying cedar in jelly form. It is not overly sweet, but tastes exactly like the smell of freshly cut cedar. It pairs so well with cheese. I also tried a spoonful melted into hot Labrador tea, and it was delightful. This may become a staple in my pantry.
The flavor of cedar in the jelly is not overpowering but it is singularly evident. It really is perfect with cream cheese on a bagel. I was surprised to find that it was so delicious. It will be fun to experiment with glazing fish and meats with it. There is just the right amount of cedar in the jelly and the flavor is soft and balanced. The sweetness is light. Quite a foresty tasting treat. Very good product!
Immediately upon opening the cedar jelly, the sharp, crisp texture of cedar hits your nose. Smells and tastes are strongly reminiscent of a Northwoods portage in summertime. Delightful!
