I Can't Believe Its Not Jam

It was just another day - alarm went off, showered, drank coffee, went work. Everything going well until...

 Until...i read a news.com.au story about jam doughnuts, one of my favorite pastries which left me, mouth open and struggling for words.

In the story they claim that the jam inside the doughnut is not actuall jam at all and, wait for it, is actually apple sauce.

What!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This can't be true? Surely not, i said to myself. But, oh it's true and they have the inside info to back up their claim.

Here's the part of the story that shattered my day:

And news.com.au is sadly here to shatter your gooey dreams with the truth, thanks to the good folk at Donut King who bravely went against the official doughnut code of practice to share it with us.

“Some food brands use apple paste or sauce as the core ingredient in their raspberry jam recipe,” Donut King general manager Andrew Badcock told news.com.au.

Yep, that’s right — the “raspberry jam” is actually apple sauce that is coloured and flavoured. The world as we know it is a lie.

“With its natural sweetness and no pips, apple sauce is widely used for its smooth and ‘jammy’ texture,” Mr Badcock said, explaining the decision to swap jam for apple sauce was all down to fussy doughnut eaters that don’t like pips in their baked goods.

Shame on you jam doughnut makers - shame!!! 

Well, I'm not sure I'll look at or eat another hot jam doughnut with salivating lips in the same way EVER again.

Perhaps I need to follow this ladies recipe and bake my own with the real deal that is jam. Shame on you jam doughnut makers - shame!!!
