Rose & Lavender

Photobucket
I had been searching for the perfect rose confiture for a while now, assuming it would be easily found in every Parisian supermarket. But sadly, to no avail. So when I was contacted by Lianne of Everything Goes With Toast, to try a jar each of her Rose and Lavender Jam, I was more than happy to sample the goods. I bought some brioche and poured myself a cup of Marie Antoinette tea, and happily enjoyed the delicate rose and lavender flavours for the perfect Sunday lazy breakfast. Two of my most favourite natural scents, I enjoyed them just as much to eat. I found the lavender to have a slightly stronger taste and the rose to be delicately floral; they both lived up to my very high expectations and are set to become my permanent pantry conserves. As well as sharing the most amazing recipes, Lianne also sells her jams on her blog.

A friend bought me some delicious rose jam from Hong Kong of all places a while ago. It was so sweet but really good... especially with scones! nom nom x

Oh I love rose jam! Bit too sweet for my salt tooth but still I enjoy it every now and then. Thankfully it's available almost everywhere here, so I'm glad you could find one.

Lavender jam on the other hand sounds amazing! never tried one. Have a lovely weekend x

Rose and violet are my favourite smells/tastes too. I usually get my fix through rose and violet cream chocolates or Turkish Delight and I recently discovered the most wonderful lavender marmalade when we were on holiday in Norfolk using local flowers. Until now i haven't found a rose flavoured preserve so thanks very much for the link.

Oh god, I've become. Bit obsessed with your blog! And a good job too because as I was sitting here stalking you I found this about the rose jam. Bonus. Have been trying to find some for ages - it is amazing with a dollop of Greek yogurt.
