Butterfly pea flower tea, Anchan tea or blue chai has been all the rage recently: the Thai herb with the deep blue color and the many health benefits (antioxidants, cell deterioration retardant, metabolism booster etc.) has become a favorite of cooks, confectioners, baristas, bartenders and tea-drinkers the world over. Always adventurous when it come to food and drink, the Japanese have decided to try a unique approach: to use it as a coloring agent in jam. And so, the Aoi Mori Blue Apple Jam was born.
Yes, it does look like something from a science fiction movie but when it comes to the taste, Aoi Mori Blue Apple Jam has a great pedigree: it comes from Aomori, the most famous apple-producing region in Japan. Enjoy it plain on bread or toast, or use it to add a different note to sweets or baked goods. It will please both your eyes and your palate. Great taste, out-of-this-world looks, and good for you... What more could you want?!
