Pumpkin Pasilla Bread + A PRIMO Giveaway

Earlier this year I shared a few recipes from PRiMO Specialty Foods and shared how much I love their product. Well, Primo sent me a new flavor to try, Berry Pasilla, and I knew I needed to make a delicious fall recipe to share with you to show-off the tasty ways to use their preserves. 

The Berry Pasilla preserve is a very unique and tasty flavor. The berry flavor is very bright, but the pasilla pepper flavor reminds me of raisin with a little sweet smoky flavor of cocoa. The pepper is traditionally used in mole sauce, but I wanted to try something different and something I could share with my friend and family over the holiday. 

I opted to make a pumpkin bread with the preserves because I thought that the flavors would be amazing together and I love that pumpkin can naturally carry spice and not be overwhelmed by it.  My bread was delicious and I loved the flavors from the preserves coming through the bread with a hint of spice from the peppers- so yummy! 

PRiMO Specialty Foods is so generous and wants to share some of their amazing preserves not only with me, but with all of you. They have an amazing holiday gift pack with four amazing preserves: Berry Pasilla, Raspberry Habanero, Holiday Pumpkin Spread, and Spiced Cherry. Look at those beautiful jars- I love their retro style packaging!

These preserves would make a lovely gift or are perfect if you have company coming and are laying out a light breakfast for your guests.  I can't wait to share them with my family this weekend because we always make homemade scones and I know my family will enjoy trying the different flavors. Thank you PRiMO for your lovely preserves! Please enter using the Rafflecopter below- giveaway will run till Saturday at midnight!
