Homemade Country French + Triple Berry Jam

• 26 May 2010

























One of my favorite treats in the world is also one of the simplest--homemade bread with homemade jam. Just last week I discovered that my favorite lunch spot in Salt Lake--Les Madeleines--also sells the homemade country french bread they use on their delicious sandwiches. I immediately picked up their very last loaf and thoroughly enjoyed it over the next few days with the homemade triple berry jam I also left with that day. This simple snack sums up why I love eating at this little cafe/patisserie so much--the food is thoughtfully prepared with the best ingredients, the ambiance is very casual, and I have access to a delicious treat after consuming a delicious lunch. There aren't many places that offer such high-quality food in an unpretentious setting such as this; and as a mother of 3, I appreciate that very much.

If there are any leftover loafs of country french bread, they are put out daily at 2:30 p.m. If you'd like to place a special order, you are welcome to do so. Just make sure you call 3 days in advance, as that is how long it takes to make a single loaf.

You have my mouth watering... all the way in Dominica! That is something that I truly miss down here, berries. Sad to admit, I've actually never been to Les Madelines, despite ALL I've heard. I must, must go there this summer when I'm town.

gorgeous styling on this photo. :-)

And this post captures exactly why I spend so much time baking bread and canning jam. So worth it. My very favorite is sweet cherry jam. Last year I canned two cases of it and used jars as hostess gifts throughout the year; this seasons I think I'll need to do 4 cases since word has gotten out!

delicious all by itself, but the photo sells it :)

No, I haven't tried doing the jam as filling--but that's completely brilliant! I read about a pineapple filling the other day that sounded so delicious (in Barbara Kingsolver's new novel The Lacuna); the idea of cherry is even more mouth-watering. Thanks for the idea!! :-)

Le Madeleines is also one of my favorite cafes in this city! I will have to go pick up some jam and bread!
