This #BuschsMarket sponsored post has been compensated by Linqia and it’s advertiser. As always, my love for all things recipe inspired are my own.
Last week, I was invited to attend the grand opening of Busch’s Market in Brighton, MI. I love the energy that comes with new stores. Not only that, but all those full shelves and fresh produce are just an inspiration for recipes! Especially when this Welcome sign is for a store that takes pride in partnering with Michigan grown and local companies.
Not to mention the fact that Busch’s Market Fresh Foods knows how to open a store! From radio stations offering giveaways to professional cheese carvings to food samples and Starbucks coupons. Even signing up to be a member of the MyWay Rewards program means freebies (like a case of water) and fun sweepstakes!
Personally, I can’t not get inspired to get into the kitchen with all the sales and fresh produce that immediately greet you. And one glance at the weekly ad and I knew just what I wanted. Michigan cherries. Namely one very specific Traverse City Cherry coffee only available from Busch’s Market. So popular (and for good reason) was this coffee I actually bought the last 12oz bag in the store that day.
Plus I love the overall decor that Busch’s Market is known for. From attractive shelving and signage to the bulk food options. There really is something for everyone. Plus, the light bulb section headers for areas such as the Bakery will liken to a beacon for all you carb lovers!
But lets go back to why I really loved shopping that day…the Traverse City Cherry flavored coffee. And my cool summer tradition of whipping up a jar of coffee jelly. More widely known overseas, this easy spread can be made with more or less gelatin depending on how you prefer to eat it. Regardless, this is one summer recipe made fresh and easy with Busch’s Market!
So if you’re ever looking for a way to caffeinated your day outside of a mug, look no further. While I adore flavored coffee, they often brew up too weak for my personal tastes in a mug. This method allows for enjoying the flavor in a more concentrated serving. While I used the Busch’s Market Local Growing Home sticker to label my jelly jar, it is not affiliated with products sold in-store.
- .25 oz unflavored gelatin
- 9 oz HOT coffee
- 1 oz maple syrup (light or dark)
- Brew (or boil) up 9 oz of flavored coffee.
- Whisk in unflavored gelatin packet until dissolved.
- Stir in 1 oz maple syrup.
- Pour liquid to fill jelly canning jar.
- Refrigerate until firm, about 4-6 hours.
I typically increase the sugar/syrup sweetener if not using flavored coffee.
Great to spread on hot toast or top with whipped cream for a dessert.
So here’s wishing you all a perfectly caffeinated day. Make sure you give this a whirl and let me know what you think. Plus hop over for a chance to win free groceries for a year from Busch’s Market Fresh Foods!
