Why aren’t you eating…Trader Joe’s raspberry fruit spread

Raspberry fruit spreadWe go through at least a jar of Trader Joe’s Organic Raspberry Fruit Spread a week. Yeah, it’s that good. If you have a Trader Joe’s anywhere near you, I highly suggest you pick up a few. Even Santa likes it. He brought my teen a case of the stuff for her for Christmas–that’s all she wanted.

 

So just how do we go through that much raspberry spread?

•Mix it with plain, Greek yogurt for breakfast

•PBR sandwich–peanut butter and raspberry on whole-grain bread

•As a secret ingredient in my Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Cheesecake

•Cracker, sharp cheddar cheese, dollop of raspberry jam–perfect snack

•As a layer in our chocolate mini dessert parfaits

•Thin it with a little lemon juice as a fruit sauce for desserts

Why aren’t you using…white balsamic vinegar

White balsamic vinegarLately, I’m adding a few swigs of white balsamic vinegar into most of my savory sauces and homemade vinaigrettes. Maybe it’s that I’m anxious for spring to be here but the sweet yet acidic flavor of white balsamic brightens up just about anything.

 

I usually get my vinegars at Trader Joe’s where they’re reasonably priced and good quality.
