Sara and Andrea of Amor de Madre
There is nothing compared with the love of a mother, with the care they feed their children, with the talent of their unique recipes prepared in the kitchen. Do you remember those delicious breakfasts every Saturday morning? What about the cakes your mother prepared for your birthdays? Nowadays we don’t have time to spend hours in the kitchen, but the love for home-made products has strongly returned as an alternative to the fast daily rhythm that steals most of our free time.
Luckily, there are initiatives that are trying to bring back that slow and traditional way of cooking and enjoying food. One such initiative in Barcelona was created by Andrea and Sara, the two best friends, creative minds and cooks behind the homey jam brand “Amor de Madre” (Mother’s Love).
Jam, just jam!
It began as a hobby and a nice idea for making presents for friends and family. Their home-made jams seemed to seduce everyone who had the pleasure of trying them, so soon they started to think about the possibility of turning it into something more than just a hobby. At the moment, their small and pretty fruit and vegetable jars are synonymous with authenticity, nutrition and yummy jams. They can be bought through their blog.
All their products are made with fresh and seasonal fruits and vegetable such as kiwi, pepper, oranges or lemons, respecting the year’s natural calendar. They don’t use any additives and they always cook with brown sugar, creating a very simple, healthy and tasty product, consisting of just jam (forget the other ingredients found in the jams on supermarket shelves!). The decoration is hand-made writing directly on the glass jar and a tag with their brand’s name: “Amor de madre”.
One of the activities Sara and Andrea love are the Jam Tastings. They are funny and casual meetings they celebrate with friends or people who have previously contacted them, in order to showcase their products and invite the participants to try the best combinations. In the tastings they always take from five to 10 different jams with bread toasts, muffins and other bakery products to spread the jam on. They like to add some cheese, pates and butter to play a bit with the tastes and flavors, creating surprising mixes. At the end of the tasting, they ask assistants' opinions to find out which jams are more successful and which ones work better with this or that combination.
To take part in one of these casual Jam Tastings you can write to Sara and Andrea at firstname.lastname@example.org. The tastings are free and in return, they just ask each participant to buy at least one of the jars, costing just €4.
