For the true, true stories behind this incredible foodstuff, read on.
No one ever said jerky needs to be beef, right? For that matter, it probably doesn't even need to be meat. In the last few years we have seen amazing things like coconut jerky and superfood fruit leathers. Along comes a company called Watermelon Road. They pair fruits from watermelon to pineapple and even eggplant (yep, that's a fruit) with the simplest of accents like lime, lemon, and mint. The result is more than the sum of its paleo parts. You'll reach for nibble after bite after taste; relishing the perfect flavors and satisfying texture.Pineapple is often an only-occasionally fruit for most of us. The potent acidic juices, the spiny exterior to deal with, the hint of bitterness, the way it tastes so good right up until it doesn't. But pineapple deserves our love. Tasting this Pineapple Mojito jerky is a revelation in snacking, from first bite to the last piece at the bottom of the bag. Sweetly tart lime is the perfect foil for the sweetness, adding a little zing and intrigue. Mint adds complexity and can't-put-it-down deliciousness.
I love how the texture changes from piece to piece: some are almost leathery with chew while others have a softness that melts into delight.
