Harvest Fields breakfast spreads at FairPrice
IMO, Toast with a bit of spread is one of the easiest and tastiest breakfasts to put together before a long day. While jam used to be my go-to, my recent discovery of Harvest Fields’ fruit spreads really levelled up my simple morning meal to new, fruity dimensions.
Harvest Fields may be a familiar name to those who enjoy snacking on dried fruits, but they also produce fruit spreads in two flavours: Strawberry and Blueberry. These are both made in Italy, with premium fruit.
If you’re wondering what the differences between fruit spreads and jams are, here’s the lowdown: fruit spreads are made with no added sugars or sugar replacements.
They tend to contain fruit chunks and have an overall higher fruit content. Harvest Fields’ fruit spreads contain 51% of real fruit, making them extra-fruity, so you can savour the natural berry notes.
Fruit spreads tend to be thicker than jams, as they have a higher fruit solids content.
This makes Harvest Fields’ offerings great on top of toast, but also as ingredients in plenty of other fruity creations, think muffins with a jammy core, yoghurt parfaits, or overnight oats.
The spreads are also more nutritious than jams. Beyond the lower sugar content, they’re also free of artificial preservatives, colourings, and flavourings.
A 250g jar of Harvest Fields Strawberry or Blueberry spread will set you back $4.50.
I personally enjoy a bit of butter with my fruit spread and toast combo, but am not a fan of butter’s high fat content. Harvest Fields has a butter alternative in the form of their Olive Spread.
This vegan-friendly butter substitute is made in Australia. It is prepared with non-GMO ingredients, as well as has no artificial preservatives.
The plant-based spread tastes rich, without butter’s fattiness. It is also much healthier, given that the spread is free of cholesterols and trans fat, as well as a source of vitamins A and D.
Beyond toast, you can also use the olive spread in place of butter in recipes that call for it.
A 500g tub costs $5.35, but you can get it at a discounted price of $4.95 from now till 15 June 2022. All Harvest Fields’ products mentioned are available at FairPrice outlets islandwide.
