There’s nothing quite like a homemade loaf of bread. That scent wafting through a kitchen can make any house feel like home. Maybe it brings you back to your grandmother’s kitchen or to a special family holiday. Paired with a good jam, a slice of bread is a great snack or side for any meal. There’s a down-home kind of science to making the perfect bread, but quick bread recipes make it fast and easy to bake a loaf. Baked with sweet, juicy tomatoes, our NatureSweet Glorys Quick Bread and Chia Jam will be a delight at your next festive meal or as a holiday gift to friends and loved ones!
The Not-So-Secret Ingredient: NatureSweet Glorys
There’s a good reason we’re using NatureSweet Glorys in both our bread and jam… they’re great tomatoes! We use NatureSweet’s incredible tomatoes every chance we get. We’ve shown them off television on Indy Style and even used the containers in fun craft projects. They’re our favorite tasty ingredient in our NatureSweet Glorys Quick Bread and Chia Jam!
How does NatureSweet grow such flavorful tomatoes? It lets its principles guide it! When it invests in and cares about its Associates, NatureSweet’s team of growers care more about the food they’re growing. NatureSweet is doing what’s right for the people who power every aspect of the company, not just for their profit margin.
NatureSweet’s success also comes from its innovative approach to growing. These growers don’t cut corners. Even if it’s harder or more expensive, they’re willing to try something new if it could give them a better outcome. Unique growing methods and a willingness to experiment mean NatureSweet brings the best tomatoes to market.
But it’s not all about tomatoes. NatureSweet looks at the bigger picture. It believes one of the most important things it can do as a company is care for the planet. NatureSweets innovations aren’t reserved for better-tasting tomatoes — it’s always looking for more sustainable and Earth-friendly solutions.
Savory NatureSweet Glorys Quick Bread and Chia Jam
Making NatureSweet Glorys Quick Bread and Chia Jam is easy. It’s one-of-a-kind flavor will be ready to enjoy in no time! Unlike traditional breads, quick breads don’t use yeast or sourdough starters as leavening agents. They also don’t require a carefully-controlled climate or baking process, meaning they’re much easier to make. Though they’re all completely different, cornbread, banana bread, brownies, and cookies are all forms of quick bread.
We used NatureSweet Glorys in this quick bread along with asiago cheese for a rich and savory delight. Basil and garlic come along for added flavor. While it’s great to eat it by hand, try slicing it up and toasting it or using it as sandwich buns. We love it with some fresh deli salami – and more asiago cheese, of course!
But in our opinion, this bread is at its best with chia jam. This isn’t your typical jam — cayenne, onion, garlic, and lemon give it a zesty kick while NatureSweet Glorys and maple syrup provide a balancing sweetness and texture. Chia seeds add a boost of nutrition, too!
We loved chowing down on NatureSweet Glorys Quick Bread and Chia Jam. But don’t limit it to your kitchen! It’s a unique gift that your friends and family will appreciate this holiday season. We wrapped our bread in simple, decorative paper and put a batch of chia jam in a mason jar for a simple, timeless gift.
