The French lifestyle has long been an inspiration to homemakers, travelers and cooks around the world for centuries. The art of French living is famous for romanticizing food, with gorgeous presentations, intricate ingredients and mouth watering flavors. While a French touch to food is no secret to many Americans, there are all kinds of hidden gems that remain. One of them is this Bonne Maman Chestnut Spread.
Better known as confiture de marrons, this spread is a French countryside favorite, made from cooking fresh chestnuts with sugar and vanilla. Inspired by simple recipes from your French grandmother’s kitchen, Bonne Maman products feature only the purest, highest-quality ingredients, with no GMOs, no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial coloring and no added preservatives.
Try the classic chestnut spread with crackers for a lovely little snack, or go full-on French and add it to yogurt or cheese. Another idea: a jar of this with a fresh baguette is simply heaven. You can also apply a little dollop on top of pies and pastries.
The littlest things can bring joy and comfort, and something as simple as a sweet snack can brighten your day. Bonne Maman’s commitment to distilling everything to its simplest form extends to its packaging, with a handwritten style script label wrapped around the company’s iconic glass jar packaging and plaid twist-off lid.
Travelers have been known to buy jars of Bonne Maman jam or preserves on their trips to Europe, bringing home a taste of France for themselves, friends and family. Not going to Paris or Provence anytime soon? This Chestnut Spread is so delicious and popular that it is now being offered online, ready to be delivered directly to your door and into your heart.
