ć*€ć†…æžœćźŸćœ’ / è‘›ă‚ŒăƒȘăƒŒă€€ăƒŸăƒƒă‚Żă‚č




^One of my colleagues in Japan sent one of these to me. I am having a fun time guessing what it is...a kind of fruit 'sauce' maybe? A type of 'jam' or 'spread'?


I really don't know...can someone help me out and just tell me what the heck this is?


Is it for cooking with? Is it to be eaten straight? Is it even edible?? lol

It says "jelly" which usually refers to what Americans would call jello, not to jam. I think it's meant to be eaten as is.

Hhmmm.

In person it does look a little jello like...doesn't seem like it would spread well on an English muffin

The description also says it has an elastic-like consistency and is made of concentrated fruit. I think it's just a snack. I had some gummy or jelly-like candies in Japan that were sort of like that.

Here's the name of the company: 掘内果実圆 (Digging Inside Fruits Garden)

You can Google translate it but it won't return any sensible meanings. It is a fruit garden that makes fruit products -- prunes, jam ...

Product: 葛ゼリー ミックス (Horiuchi orchard kudzu jelly plum)

These words 葛ゼリー ミックス actually mean "Kudzu jelly mix," mix referring to a variety of flavors.

Are you sure it doesn't mean I should mix it with something else?

The packets it is packaged in is almost like how a condiment would be packaged (like ketchup).

Yes, the left side of the page you linked to says:

Kudzu jelly:

- plum
- persimmon
- quince
- apple
- mix

The word "mix" is highlighted because that's what you have. The text also refers to "four variations [ flavors]." There is nothing said about mixing the jelly with something else or preparing it in any way.

Have you opened one of them? You could certainly try spreading it on something. In Japanese, though, "jelly" usually refers to jello or a gelatin dessert, and what Americans call jelly they call "jamu" (jam).
