In case you haven't gathered, we're big fans of jam and toast here at Blue Chair Fruit.
To fuel your obsession, we're offering a special Morning Toast 2-Pack containing a jar each of our two favorite flavors. This limited-edition set will be available until a new "favorite flavor" comes along (translation: about a month).
Curious about our favorite ways to enjoy our morning toast? Here's what the BCF team has to say:
Jo: "Olallieberry Jam and foie gras mousse from Fabrique Delices on orange zest scented brioche -- with spicy black pepper chai with a smidge of Katz (black button sage) honey and splash of Strauss milk." What Jo only mentioned later is that she pipes on the foie gras, because her brioche is SO delicate. Baroque, indeed!
As summer fades to fall, we notice a change in our morning routines: a little more lingering in bed before starting the day, a different choice of tea, and, if you're us, a new toast + jam combination that's seasonally appropriate.
It probably comes as no surprise that we LOVE talking deciding how to use our new favorite jam or marmalade -- would it be better on sourdough or walnut bread? with or without butter? We want to share with you what Blue Chair Fruit is currently enjoying on these crisp autumn mornings.
Last week, Rachel came to me in a flurry of excitement. She had just read Molly Wizenberg's most recent blog post on Orangette, wherein Molly describes her new love of toast. "I love toast!" Rachel said. "I totally understand and agree with everything Molly says in her blog. I love toast. We have to blog about toast."
A few days have passed, and we all talked excitedly about toast: when we like to eat it, what kind of bread we like, what kind of jam or marmalade is best on toast (a heated debate, as you may well imagine). And, well, Rachel's been a little bit busy making jam out of thousands of berries every day, so I thought I'd hop in and share our conclusions about toast. It may not be quite as elegant an articulation as Molly's, but I do think it gives a peek into how fanatical we at Blue Chair are about perfect jam pairings.
Rachel's favorite: Irish brown bread with English Marmalade is right up there. With strong black tea, of course!
