Expect the unexpected, and whenever possible, be the unexpected. – Lynda Barry
During her career as an architect, Brins founder Candice Ross traveled extensively in Asia, Europe, and the Middle East, where she wandered local markets exploring each culture through its flavors.
Through creative flavor combinations, Ross seeks to meld the comfort of her home with the excitement of new experiences. The name, Brins, Cajun French for “little bit,” is a word that celebrates her Louisiana family heritage while incorporating world travels and the experience of living in the diverse community of Brooklyn.
This month’s Featured Jam, Strawberry Lemongrass Spread, exemplifies this meeting of worlds. At first bite, it hits you with all the classic strawberry jam flavor. Then comes the lemongrass, ginger, and lime, providing an unexpected twist that surprises the senses and wakes your taste buds up from a nap. It’s a brilliant addition to toast, cheese, or an AB&J muffin!
