Pain Perdu (“Eggy Bread”)

 
Pain perdu (“Eggy bread”)

“This recipe is a delicious souvenir of my childhood. My mother was a simple cook who prepared unsophisticated, healthy and filling meals. Back then, food was better, healthier and fresher. For example we simply rinsed fresh spinach a few times then reduced it to a purée in a pan, chopped it up, then sprinkled over breadcrumbs, salt and pepper before serving. It was simple and delicious. If any left-over bread went stale, my mother made this recipe which we found delicious...” (Lia Kwint-Kruse)

We have an orchard with many apple trees and a small kitchen garden with vegetables, including rhubarb. I have found various ways of using up the apples that don’t look presentable enough for the fruit bowl. We serve this jam to our guests as a treat at breakfast time and they love it!
