If you haven't seen Jamie Oliver's television program, where he goes around American schools and American cities and changing the way people think about food, you are missing great information and wonderful insights.
Last night, while Hubby and I craved a rich dessert like the one I'm showing you, we settled for strawberries and cream. Jamie Oliver's lessons are sinking into our consciousness. Even mine and Hubby's. Hubby whipped up the cream with Splenda, and we argued about Splenda afterword.
Because of something Mr. Oliver stated to a class in the Los Angeles School District. He had a food science class where he showed students what goes into some candies. Would you believe bird feathers?
The lesson concluded with this statement:
"If you don't know an ingredient on a package, don't buy the package!"
So, Hubby researched the ingredients in Splenda, and while he understood the chemical process that provides these ingredients, (after all he is a scientist!), I argued that we were better off just using plain sugar, or better, plain honey.
How about you?
Do you buy packages with ingredients you don't recognize?
