On a recent visit to the Ojai farmers' market, I picked up several wonderful homemade jams. There were many flavors to choose from, but I ended up with apricot and raspberry. The jams brought to mind one of my favorite breakfasts. I spread whole wheat-toast (or any whole-grain bread) with nonfat cottage cheese and a dollop of homemade or good-quality jam. It makes a delicious, filling breakfast along with hot tea. Give it a try the next time you're in a big rush but want to have a good breakfast.
