So. What is horny goat weed? It is native to Asia and the Mediterranean regions, and has been used for over 2000 years according to medical texts. Horny goat weed is also known as barrenwort or epimedium. In Chinese medicine it is called yin yang huo. Apparently it increases blood flow and thus, improves sexual function, but of course it is very hard to find good data on this! With that in mind, WebMD cites a man suffered heart arrhythmia and that epimedium may lower blood pressure. With this in mind, use with caution if you are taking anti-coagulant or blood pressure medications. 

With all this in mind, the level of horny goat weed in Duerr's jam is very safe. I just felt the need to mention the potential side-effects if anyone were to go looking for the tablet versions!

This beautiful jam is made from sugar, strawberries, champagne, fruit pectin, lemon juice and horny goat weed. There are 45g of fruit per 100g of jam. It is suitable for veggies and vegans alike, and is also gluten free! I will say that if you are taking medications that interact with alcohol, namely disulfiram or metronidazole, it is best to give this a miss so you don't end up with a reaction to the champagne.

This really is a beautiful jam. The smell is intoxicating; you can really pick up on the fresh strawberry fragrance and even the champagne! My sense of smell is very acute with alcohol though. There are pieces of strawberry throughout the jam which I absolutely love, and the dryness of the champagne really comes through on the after-taste. A true luxury right here!
