Which strawberry jam ?

strawberry jam taste test - which one do we prefer?

We haven’t made any strawberry jam of late as we haven’t had spare strawberries for such activities! So what to do? Well we suggest buying the best of them as usual. But heavens! look at this: Bonne Maman gives us two strawberry jams to choose from in our local supermarché!

The wild strawberry conserve sounds very inviting but cost more than the standard strawberry conserve. We didn’t know what to do, so we bought both.

These jams are soft set and both are delicious. Equally delicious. We couldn’t actually discern any major flavour differences at all, but strangely the wild one had seeds! Now we’re not especially keen on seeds though we can tolerate them. However when one comes without as many seeds it seemed to us the more obvious choice particularly as it is less expensive.

Whichever one you choose, it will delight.

* Please note that these are own findings, we have not been sponsored by Bonne Maman or any associated companies and this is not a commercial posting in any way at all. (Yes we’ve missed a trick there!) Enjoy the jam.
