This product may be advertised as a kiddie's dessert dream, but it was a hit with the grown-ups as well! I was going out for a meal with friends so volunteered to bring something for afterwards. The something comprised freshly picked produce from my garden (feijoas, persimmons and figs) made into a fruit salad then topped with custard and a single white chocolate strawberry. I passed around the sauce so people could take as much or as little as they liked and immediately regretted it because they liked it so much they were coming back for seconds.
The strawberry taste is the same as you get from fresh fruit - a wonderfully authentic strawberry flavour which would complement most dishes like this. It would also be good on a plain steamed pudding. There is some sugar added as well, but even though it is very sweet, the strawberry stops it from becoming sickly. I don't eat a lot of sweet dishes but this is one I could happily eat again. (I like strawberry jam too so that clinches it.)
In these times of heightened awareness of what we are putting in our stomachs, this product - like all Barker's products - contains no food nasties, and it comes in a recyclable glass bottle rather than a plastic container. The fruit content is a full 45%, impressive when the high water content of strawberries is taken into account. The sugar content is high, but it is a sauce, not a dessert in itself, so a 30g serving (suggested on the bottle) is not going to do too much harm. I took less than this anyway as it looked a lot when it was on the plate.
Having escaped from my gourmet friends with a small amount of the sauce still left, I decided to try it out on two other dishes. Next morning, instead of having my usual soy milk on my porridge, I added just over half of the sauce that was left - about 15 g. It gave the porridge real zing, and completely altered the flavour. Now I want to try some of the rest of the sauces range this way.
The final 10g I used to liven up some cold lamb which I was having with salad for lunch. Lamb can be very boring when served on its own; I would normally add some pickles or a little chutney but decided to go sweet this time. It poured on just like tomato sauce but added an interesting and very pleasant aftertaste to the meat. I would not have thought of using a strawberry sauce like this, but it worked!
