“Summer is just over too fast, so we took summertime and captured it in a marmalade,” said Joe Loewinsohn, mastermind and co-owner of Right Brain Kitchens, based in Redwood City.
The flavors are also available for purchase and we’re also donating 20% of all sales (effective Oct. 12 – Jan 12) of Right Brain Kitchens jams & marmalade to Russell Bede School in San Mateo.
All the flavors are fantastic, but we guarantee you’ll be blown away by the watermelon marmalade. Local vendor Joe Loewinsohn even includes a little of the rind for a bit of crunch.
This flavor, Joe says, was created like most of my flavors. “I’ll be doing something completely unrelated to jam, and it’ll hit me, ‘why is there no watermelon jam?’, so then I go and make an experimental batch.
The result of the first batch provided the answer: Watermelon it turns taupe when cooked, so Joe experimented with other food extracts for color to come up with the solution. He uses an all-natural vegan-kosher red color made from tomato and hibiscus.
One of our crew members, Christine, says she doesn’t even care much for fresh watermelon, but Joe’s Summertime Watermelon Marmalade “is awesome. I mixed it with a bit of mascarpone and spread it on a Berta Maria cracker for an after-dinner treat.”
Joe also suggests stirring some into your morning yogurt, using it for a PB&J, serving it as a dip for fried chicken or adding fresh watermelon, mixing it with whipped cream and dolloping on angel food cake or shortbread.
