We love peanut butter as much as we love maple syrup. So when you have both together in a jar, it is heaven for us. This salty and sweet combination is one that you can’t stop having more of. The addition of the toasted pecans give the peanut butter a nice flavoured crunch.

Runny jams can be delicious if you’re using them as a topping for your ice cream. But when it comes to a spread for your pastries and toast, we are all for chunky jams. And this marmalade features that thick and rustic texture that is perfect as a spread. It is made from rose pink ruby grapefruit, giving a pithy zing that wakes up your taste buds.

This kaya features the aromatic flavours of coconut caramel. The addition of sea salt helps to balance out the sweetness and creaminess. It tastes somewhat like the Peranakan treat, ondeh-ondeh (glutinous rice ball with palm sugar).

We get that rhubarb is an acquired taste, but seeing as it is paired with strawberries, the flavour of the jam isn’t too out there. The tartness of rhubarb pairs well with the fruity sweetness of strawberries, creating a blend that is familiar with just a hint of the unusual.
