My brother's house always has a bag of dried mango ready for snacking. But I've found something even more amazing, more flavorful and more wonderful: Mango Margarita fruit jerky. Wait, what? Well, who ever said that jerky had to be meat? Not the folks at Watermelon Road, that's for sure. They take the already wonderful dried mango concept and up the ante and the gourmet credentials by adding lime juice for zing and chili powder for a subtle kick. Here's how to make everyone happy: keep getting the plain-ol' dried mangoes for the kids, but let the grownups nosh on the posh Mango Margarita with a smile.
For the true, true stories behind this incredible foodstuff, read on.
Did someone write a rule that jerky needs to be beef? I don't think so. For that matter, it probably doesn't even need to be meat. In the last few years we have seen amazing and innovative things like coconut jerky and superfood fruit leathers. But now, along comes a company called Watermelon Road. They pair fruits from mango to 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.
Mango is one of the most beloved fruits in many cultures. Served as dessert, mangoes are regaled for their deep juicy flavor and easy sweetness. Sliced raw with a drizzle of coconut cream, they fit right in at any fine dining meal. But now you can enjoy the luscious flavor of mango, along with a refreshing hit of lime, in a dried fruit jerky. These sweet-tart slices can only come from a master of flavor, right from their kitchen into your mouth. I adore this jerky, and you will, too.
