Memories of Mom, or Grandma baking cookies, bread, pies, or other yummy treats is probably indelibly stamped into most people’s fondest recollections. Just the smell of baking is enough to make the mouth water and put a smile on our face. Baking is also a wonderful social activity to experience with friends and family, especially if you have kids. Many of our olive oils, infused vinegars, finishing salts and sugars not only improve the taste of baked goods, but they’re a healthier alternative to many traditional ingredients. How about Butter Infused Olive Oil instead of butter for a change? You wouldn’t believe what Murray River Australian Flake Salt will do for Harvest Salted Caramel Cheesecake by the way. In some cases, recipes may really only be possible with these products.
