sugar free marmalade for the breakfast win

we love long weekend brunches. and since Switzerland is renown for it's bread quality, it won't be missing on our buffet. On Sundays my husband and I either walk to the organic bakery (John Baker Helvetiaplatz) and get a fresh loaf or I get one on Saturday from Vier Linden stone oven bakery. Great bread deserves a great topping. Fresh marmalade, home made Nutella / nut butter - NO NO NO refined sugar though.. ;) 
Since the sugar free marmalade is too expensive to buy regularly, I tried to imitate it. And voilà - I succeeded =) So quick, inexpensive, delicious, family friendly and you won't barely taste that there's no sugar inside! Go for it. Yum. 
By the way: John Baker not only got great bread, they serve awesome coffee too. And when you go "shopping" with my John Baker bag you get chf 0.30 off your purchase! We pretty much tried everything. The rye & spelt bread are my favourite. David goes for the "Zopf" / fruit or whole grain bread.
