Breakfast Pancake Party with British Artisan Syrups by Atkins and Potts
I LOVE to promote British artisan companies, as you all know, so, when Atkins and Potts asked me if I would like to try some of their Syrups and Glazes, all made in their Berkshire kitchen, with wonderful and innovative products such as Quince Syrup, Pomegranate Syrup, Lavender Syrup and Rose Syrup, I was hooked, as I am a huge lover of all things quincey, fruity and floral! The range is contemporary and yet traditional, and as well as their syrups, there are glazes, jellies, jams, relishes, sauces, marinades and spreads to name but just a few. I was asked to choose a few samples to try, so I picked Quince Syrup, Pomegranate Syrup, Dark Chocolate Dessert Sauce, Purple Basil Jam and Roast Garlic Jam…..
I have plans to make some recipes with the lovely sauces, syrups and jams I received, but I could not resist trying the quince syrup and dark chocolate dessert sauce straight away; so, when my daughter’s flat mate Bobby said he was making his famous home-style American pancakes, I knew that was the ideal opportunity to try them, especially as written on the quince syrup bottle it suggests…”Exquisite with yoghurt for breakfast or poured over pancakes or waffles. This sweet floral fruity syrup is surprisingly good with blue cheese, or as a glaze for roasting turkey, duck or loin of pork”….
I have already created a recipe with the pomegranate syrup, which, I will share with you later this week, but for now, it was all about fluffy pancakes, fragrant quinces and dark chocolate sauce…...the quince syrup was divine, fruity and with floral fragrance that danced on the tongue, that only quince possesses – it was perfect when dribbled over the pancakes and I have plans for more ambitious recipes using it. As for the dark chocolate dessert sauce, it was decadent and dangerously delicious for breakfast! Suggestions for serving this were…..”This bitter dark Belgian chocolate sauce is perfect to drizzle over waffles, fresh fruit, ice cream or pancakes. Alternatively stir into hot milk for a luxurious hot drink. We suggest warming before pouring”…… which, is exactly what we did, warmed it and popped it into a small bowl for dunking and dribbling!
With thanks to Atkins and Potts for sending me this tempting selection of hand-made artisan products, and please look out for some proper recipes over the next few weeks, using these amazing sauces, syrups and jams. This is just the APPETISER and there is more to follow……in the meantime, take a look at their range of products here: Atkins and Potts Product Range
