Lately because we are home so much more I find that I am doing more baking. My kids seem to be enjoying it as well! I am always on the hunt for new products to use so I was thrilled to be handed two different brands to test out this week. Both were great and I wanted to share them with you!
Purecane: Here you have all-natural, zero calorie, gluten-free, non-GMO sweetener. This is actually and impressively made from sugarcane but without the calories and health risks associated with other sugars and sweetners. This is done by a super cool natural fermentation process! I am kind of telling you that you can actually make “healthy cake icing” or “healthier cookies from scratch”. Great options are available like baking sweetener, brown sweetener, confectioners sweetener and more! The part I was so impressed with was the taste; so many “better for you” sugars have this gross aftertaste or bitterness and these DID NOT! You can check out their great recipes as well; I made the buttercream frosting this weekend and everyone in my house approved!
Nielsen Massey Fine Vanillas and Flavors: if you take on baking you should strive for the best! Why spend the time and use only average products?? This is a family run business that brings you the quality items your family deserves! They offer so many great items but I love their Pure Lemon Extract. It adds that bit of citrus to my cookies without the zesting or juicing. I also add a little bit to the marinade on my pork chops this weekend and was thrilled with the result! My husband added some of their Pure Orange Extract to our brunch Hollandaise sauce and I couldn’t believe the difference. I cannot wait to try this in my next summer salad dressing! I am very excited to try the Rose Water in my next smoothie; I hear it will be perfect with berries! I don’t think you can go wrong with any of their extracts or flavors! Check them out!
