-Foodie Penpals is open to blog readers as well as bloggers.

My Foodie Pen Pal for July  was Melissa whose blog can be found at  :

 This Month I received a wonderful Greaves Raspberry Jam, Lemon Poppy Seed Scone mix , loose leaf tea and a mildly spicy seasoning mix.

The Jam was thick , rich and not overly sweet it was everything you want from a Raspberry jam.

I have not brewed the loose tea yet, since this variety is better served hot and July's temperatures have not provide a day for hot tea yet.

The Seasoning mix was really good on chicken breast cooked on the grill.

The lemon Scones where baked and served with the Jam , they  had a nice mild lemon taste and the jam added an extra punch.
