“Summertime and the livin’ is easy…
As the sun shines, it seems the perfect time to introduce new Bonne Maman Mirabelle Plum Conserve. Harvested from the orchards of Lorraine, South West France, ripe, golden yellow Mirabelles are naturally very sweet, juicy plums that make a glorious fruit conserve, just redolent of sunshine.
…Fish are jumpin’ and the cotton is high…”
A delicious, fruity addition to toast, bagels or croissants in the morning, or scones and muffins at teatime, Mirabelle Plum combines extremely well with the flavours of almonds, caramel and vanilla, making it a perfect base for various fruit tarts and flans as well as delivering showstopper cakes high on flavour and impact. Like our new recipe for Vanilla & Almond Plum Layer Cake with Ricotta Frosting.
Or try it, along with other Bonne Maman conserves whipped through giant merinques for a fantastic Summer centre piece Marbled Fruity Meringues or mixed delightfully with citrus and herbs in Lemon, Thyme and Mirabelle Minis. Perfect for teatime and great for hand made, personalised gifts.
In the UK the season for fresh Mirabelles is very short, just late July and August, but now Mirabelle Plum Conserve can bring a ray of summer sunshine to the table all year round.
