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!
