Local Toast Toppers

When you need a tasty snack, there’s nothing easier than making toast and spreading something sweet on top. The next time you’re at the local farmers’ market or grocery store, keep your eyes peeled for these local toast toppings. They’re easy to find, easy to love, and your taste buds will thank you!

Tangled Garden’s Gooseberry Lemon Balm Jam

Tangled Garden has many great products, and for breakfast, we love their Gooseberry Lemon Balm Jam. If you haven’t had gooseberries before, they’re slightly tangy, but in this jam, the tang and sweetness from the sugar, along with the citrusy notes from the lemon make a tasty trio. Slather it onto your favourite toasted local bread with some butter.
