The Gift of Breakfast: A Very Special Toast and Jam!

The All Gift Breakfast!
Spent Grain Toast With Apricot Jam





Featured In today's Post is this lovely gift from Jasmine, over at BeerAtJoe's and Apricot Jam made by Grandma Marie! Oh Boy am i a happy duck.




    Jasmine bakes bread because her soon to be husband (!) brews beer. She gave me a mini loaf of this spent grain bread which was not only Super Duper cute, but was hands down the best wheat bread i have ever had. it was sweet and hearty, but not at all dense or heavy.  It made excellent toast for homemade grandma jam, which Michael got as a gift.
    Here is a short slide show of bread and jam and toasts!
Toast to Beeratjoes!
