Pear and lavender, is one of the favorite flavors of Madre e Hija! It is fresh, it smells very strongly of lavender and you chew the small pieces of cocoa beans. It's like the transport to the lavender fields of Provence. You can eat it as it is with a spoon, but it is perfect to accompany cheese, meat and fish, it can be used in desserts. From almonds and cashew nuts, cream and fresh milk and this condiment conjure up an exceptionally fragrant sauce, which is great with rice, meat, fish. We can replace fresh cream and milk with almond milk, if we want to do without dairy products.
The idea for this highly aromatic blend came to Madre e hija when she tried Franck, a friend whose biscuits Kocolo & Zaza. From this they have created associations with their products. After tasting Franck's lavender crunch with her Black Fig Cocoa Beans spice, the producer realized that the cocoa-lavender blend was perfect. At that time, she did a test and shortly thereafter began production with the organic pear from Languedoc-Roussillon, the organic mountain lavender and organic cocoa beans, unaffected fair trade, from Peru.
