A Peanut Butter Sandwich With Healthy BerriJam May 05 2014, 0 Comments


On A Quest For a Delicious, Healthy Jam

We have to admit we are suckers for a good peanut butter and jelly (or jam) sandwich. It's easy to make, tastes great, and we can carry it out the door when we are bustling around to one thing or another. As it happens, Sturm's Berry Farm makes some absolutely delicious jams, and one day we were talking with Don about why their jam tastes so good. This is paraphrasing a bit, but basically it was, "We actually use good berries, and add some pectin and sugar.  That's about it."

Using good fruit or berries and keeping it simple can really do wonders for a great jelly or jam.

This got us thinking. By adding just a bit of water or applesauce, we can make a delicious berry spread that tastes great, but also doesn't have anything else added. You also don't need to cook the berries, so all those heat-sensitive micronutrients in our healthy berries stay intact!

Of course it doesn't hurt that we use the best quality berries straight from Don's farm in our products too. Yum!

All you need to make this berry spread is:

  • 2 teaspoons of BerriHealth Black Raspberry Powder, Blueberry Powder, Strawberry Powder, or AnthoBlend
  • Some water and/or applesauce
  • A bowl and something to mix with
  • Optional - Some honey for additional sweetness

Simply add the berry powder to the bowl, and add a couple teaspoons of water or a couple tablespoons of applesauce. If you want your spread a little sweeter, you can add some honey, too. Continue to add small amounts of water or applesauce until the jam is the right consistency to spread onto some toast, a muffin or, of course, a PB&J sandwich.
