Fruit Spread Ideas

Hello everyone. 🙂

Today, I’m sharing some simple fruit spread ideas.

I am not giving any set recipe; I am simply giving some “formula’s”, which I have learned from my mother, on how different kinds of fruit spreads can be made.
1. Dried fruits add thickness, flavor, color and sweetness to a fruit spread.  Examples of dried fruits: dates, dried figs, raisins, prunes, dried apricots, dried cranberries (we use fruit juice sweetened dried cranberries), dried papaya, dried mangoes etc.

2. Fresh fruits add flavor, color and a more watery consistency to a fruit spread. So have fun! There are many different kinds of fruits to choose from.

3. Frozen fruits add a nice touch, at times.  My mother uses frozen strawberries, slightly thawed, in her strawberry spread/jam.

4. The more adventuresome cooks may want to add spices such as anise, coriander and cardamum (this combination kind of tastes like cinnamon) or fennel for a more exotic flavor.
Have fun, cooks!

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.” James 1:17 (KJV)

I’m just a young lady who is journeying through life with Jesus. I have much to learn and unlearn and I’m so grateful to be able to be guided by God in my growing process. I desire to learn and grow forever. May I never find a complacent, stopping point! As long as I continue to humbly walk with God, I will forever be His work in progress (adapted from the "About" page on my blog
