Last week we were in love with Bolthouse Watermelon Mint Lemonade. Call us fickle, but this week we’re in love with something new.
Red Jacket Orchards Strawberry Apple Juice tastes like lush strawberry juice, the fresh fruit puréed and blended with the company’s apple juice. Located in the Finger Lakes region of New York State, the company has been growing apples and pressing juice since 1958.
The juices are cold pressed and unfiltered, capturing the freshest flavors and nutrients (heating juice to pasteurize it for shelf stability eliminates some nutrients and flavor).
It’s pretty close to eating strawberries, rich in vitamin C (eight berries contain 140% of the U.S. recommended daily allowance) and polyphenols, powerful antioxidants. Health science research indicates that the polyphenols in strawberries play a major role in helping to regulate blood sugar response—good news for people with type 2 diabetes.
Enjoy a glass of chilled soup. Mix it with club soda or clear spirits (gin, tequila, vodka). Use it as a base for fruit soup, adding a mound of mixed diced fruits to the center of the bowl. Churn it into sorbet or freeze into granita.
In addition to plain and strawberry-apple juices, Red Jacket Orchards also Blackcurrant Apple, Grape Apple, Raspberry Apple along with Apricot Stomp (pure apricot nectar, no apple juice), Tart Cherry Stomp, Apple Cider and Spiced Apple Cider.
