TIP OF THE DAY: Harvest Topping, A Fall Garnish
What’s Harvest Topping, you ask?
As created by Country Crock, it’s a universal topping that can garnish anything from a baked Brie to a sundae to a crumble.
Not to mention oatmeal, French toast, pancakes, waffles and yogurt. It’s also a salad topping. And we even mixed it into rice!
Country Crock recommends it with mascarpone cheese on sliced multigrain baguette (toast the slices), garnished with Harvest Topping over top for a delicious snack. It works with cream cheese and ricotta, too.
Sweet and spicy, it can be your go-to garnish for the rest of the season. The allspice is a nice change of pace from the ubiquitous seasonal cinnamon.
Harvest Topping is easy to make, and it will keep in an airtight container for a month or more. You can turn it into a house gift with a mason jar and a ribbon.
Prep time is 5 minutes, cook time is 20 minutes.
