Good Stuff

Posted on Updated on

I don’t usually buy fancy jams & things, but once in a while I have to make an exception. Case in point: IMG_2099

Figs & ginger are two of the food-related ways to my heart, so this found its way into my grocery basket in, like, two seconds.

I love Stonewall Kitchen products, and this is definitely a new favorite! I’ve already tried it on sprouted-grain toast with melted cheese and on top of oatmeal with plum & tahini. I imagine it’s also great in yogurt, on top of pancakes, and used as a base for marinade or salad dressing. My inner mad scientist is looking forward to a little experimentation.

As far as nutrition is concerned, sometimes people ask me what I think about added sugars in condiments, and I tend to feel the way I do about sugar in general:

  • a little goes a long way, and
  • when you do enjoy it, make it a small amount of something you really love

So if a little spread of your favorite fruit preserves is going to take your healthy sandwich from good to “OMG I need to Instagram this amazingness ASAP,” go for it. Just keep that feeling in mind when staring down the bowl of waxy leftover Easter (milk) chocolate at the office, and save your sweet-time for when it’s awesome. Oh dear. I wish my brain wasn’t so quick to make that into a metaphor…

What’s your favorite condiment? Any new finds?
