When the clocks go back an hour in the UK at the end of October, it is time to welcome in autumn with crisp mornings and cosy evenings. The beauty of autumn cannot be denied. The changing colours of the autumn leaves, misty mornings and golden autumnal afternoons provide the perfect backdrop for invigorating walks through fallen leaves, finishing in a cosy local tearoom, or back home, with a warming cup of tea, scones and St. Dalfour spread – perfect!
What better way to warm you up on chilly autumnal mornings than a piping hot bowl of porridge livened up with a swirl of St. Dalfour Strawberry spread? With no added cane sugar, nor artificial flavours or preservatives, it provides guilt free sweetness. Or, if porridge is not your thing, St. Dalfour spreads are the perfect accompaniment to hot toast, pancakes, waffles or croissants. With so many flavours, from Apricot and Blackberry to Raspberry and Wild Blueberry, you can ring the changes every day of the week.
St. Dalfour spreads are not just perfect for these autumnal mornings; don’t forget they can be used in savoury dishes too. Try a spoon of apricot preserve in a beef curry, for a dish to warm you up. A classic baked ham, coated in a delicious orange and mustard glaze, provides a tasty supper, with sufficient leftovers for sandwiches to take to work.
As the nights draw in, snuggle up on the sofa with one of St. Dalfour’s delicious desserts from our recipe section. If you prefer the savoury notes of cheese and crackers, then don’t forget a spoon of St. Dalfour spread works well with many cheeses:
- Try Imperial Pear with blue cheese;
- baked Camembert or Brie with Cranberry;
- crumbly cheeses such as Wensleydale work well with Apricot;
- Wild Blueberry complements Pecorino or Manchego;
- Pineapple & Mango works well with goat’s cheese.
Let’s not forget the king of all preserves that works with just about every cheese going – Fig Royale. Take a look at our Fig-ure It Out blog for fantastic fig and cheese combination inspiration that will bring warmth and comfort to an autumnal evening.
