I’ve really been enjoying the new “Intense” lines of spreads from Bonne Maman – both for eating and for baking. Because it’s more fruit and less sugar it doesn’t add too much extra sweetness to recipes the way some jams can.
When I saw the flavours that were released in Canada – Strawberry, Raspberry, Wild Blueberry and Apricot, I was pleased because these are four fruits I particularly enjoy (eating and baking with) in the summer that I miss in the winter – enter jam as a substitute or alternative for fresh fruit in some of my baking projects!
Financiers with fruit are one of my favourite snacks – raspberries and blueberries in particular work really well. But what to do when they are out of season and you don’t want to buy fruits flown in from elsewhere? Use JAM! Bonne Maman Intense spreads!
Because it’s more fruit and less sugar, it’s a little looser than some jams so it is perfect for swirling into the batter with a toothpick just before they are baked. And look how pretty it makes them!
And hey, if this recipe is not sweet enough for you, I’ve got some even sweeter news!
Join me at Canada’s Baking and Sweets Show!
I’m thrilled to announce that thanks to Bonne Maman, I’ll be appearing at Canada’s Baking and Sweets Show on October 19th and 20th!
I’ll be demonstrating two easy recipes from In the French kitchen with kids and sharing tips and tricks for getting kids in the kitchen. Samples of the dishes will be offered after the presentations and copies of the book (which I will be happy to personalize) will also be available for purchase as well. AND there will be special Bonne Maman samples too!
Come see me on the main stage at 11:15am on Saturday October 19th and 2:15pm on Sunday October 20th.
