Working on the theory that it sometimes takes only just one ingredient to inspire us to get cooking, Sainsbury's are setting a challenge each month for members of its Blogger Community. This month the ingredient is a jar of Sainsbury's Taste the Difference Strawberry Conserve.
Two things came to mind when I saw this jar of jam, rice pudding and scones - real comfort food.
And why rice pudding? It's the ultimate comfort food! This recipe is definitely healthier than the one my grandma used to make. I used home made almond milk and coconut palm sugar which may be a better alternative to regular sugar due to the fact that it has a lower glycemic index. I actually prefer the flavour of Coconut Palm Sugar, it has a slight caramel taste and works so well in this recipe.
To be honest, I usually choose a sugar free jam but I can truthfully say I've munched my way through a few batches of scones this past weekend followed by large helpings of rice pudding which, by the way, may be able to serve 4 to 6 people but on Sunday it just served two.
