Ingredients:
2 eggs
2 ripe bananas
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspsoon baking soda
1 cup oat flour
½ cup almond flour
2 tablespoons maple syrup
Pinch of salt
2 tablespoons peanut or almond butter
2 tablespoons coconut oil (plus more for cooking)
½ cup milk (of your choice)
Method:
Beat the eggs and banana together until smooth, baking powder, baking soda, salt,
nut butter, coconut oil (melted) and milk and blend again.
Fold in the oat and almond flours until well combined.
Heat a non-stick fry pan with a little coconut oil until hot, but not too hot, they
will easily burn.
I used a ¼ cup measuring spoon to scoop out the batter into the pan, gently spread it out evenly and leave until you see small bubbles appearing on the surface, and the top not so wet.
Flip and cook for another minute on the other side.  These pancakes will take a little longer to cook than regular pancakes.
Serve with a generous helping of defrosted Sujon berries, coconut yoghurt, and chopped banana and enjoy with a drizzle of maple syrup!
Serves: 4
Preparation time: 20-25minutes
Cooking time: Up to 30mins (cooking in batches)

Ingredients:
1.5 cups fine/quick cooking oats
½ cup almond flour
½ cup coconut
1 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
¼ cup coconut oil
¼ cup honey or maple syrup
3 tablespoons nut butter
1.5 cups Sujon Blueberries
2 tablespoons honey
¼ cup water
¼ cup chia seeds
Method:
Combine the oats, almond flour, coconut, baking powder and salt and mix
thoroughly.
In another bowl mix the melted coconut oil, sweetener and nut butter together until well combined.
Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until everything is blended together.
In a small pot place the defrosted Sujon blueberries, honey and water and bring to the boil, let it simmer for a few minutes and gentle mush some of the blueberries, its nice to have a few whole ones but we want a bit of a jam texture.
Take it off the heat and mix the chia seeds through. Leave aside to cool.
Spread ¾ of the total mixture into a non-stick baking tin.
Spread the blueberry chia seed jam mixture over the muesli base and sprinkle the rest of the oaty mixture on top.
Bake at 160 degrees for 40-45 minutes, or until golden brown.
Once cooked, leave in the tin for 10 minutes and then let cool on cooling trays.
Wait until it is totally cool before cutting into pieces.
Makes: about 18 slices
Preparation time: 30 minutes
Cooking time: 40-45 minutes

2016 Highlights: 

  • Sujon Berryfruits New Zealand’s Number One Frozen Retail Berry Brand.
  • Sujon’s pioneering sport research continues to result in some wonderful news for global athletes.
  • Sujon welcomes top NZ food industry execs Bob Major and John Molyneux to Sujon’s governance and management team: Bob as Chairman and John as CEO.
  • Our best Christmas berry recipe ever!

 9962674 - merry christmas written on the sand

  • Sujon was the pioneer of national frozen berry production and marketing in NZ. Sourcing and producing best-berries will always be our core business so we were thrilled that: Sujon is the Number One NZ retail frozen fruit brand in NZ supermarkets (Source: Aztec MAT NZ retail statistics July 2016).
  • The team at Sujon Berryfruits pioneered the world’s first research into the use of blackcurrants for sports stamina and sport recovery. Over the years that pioneering research has resulted in some amazing research being done by top world scientists in their fields. This year Professor Mark Willems and his team in the UK had their research on sports recovery using NZ blackcurrants published in ‘The Sport and Exercise Scientist’ (Full research paper here). Professor Willems and Sujon Berryfruits have worked together on a number of projects; in 2015 Prof Willems came to Nelson to visit the team that started the global “blackcurrant-sport research concept” and review his work with us. Expect more blackcurrant research to be published in 2017.
  • With all these things happening, we realised we needed help to capture the potential of our work to date and continue to create jobs for our staff and increased market opportunities for our growers. And so, this year, we were thrilled to have Bob Major join the company as Chairman and John Molyneux as CEO. Bob has an amazing background as Chairman or Director for a number of highly entrepreneurial NZ exporting companies and John Molyneux as a very successful consultant for high-tech R&D for food producer groups. The depth of knowledge these two bring to our team means we really can continue our goal to be a world leader in creating global demand for New Zealand berry-based consumer products.
  • And our recipe pick for you to enjoy this Christmas has been a favourite of ours for some years: a Christmas Mince Pie created for us that makes a truly unique kiwi-flavour: a delectable easy-to-bake sweet pie that can be enjoyed hot or cold, at the dinner table or out on a kiwi picnic! (Recipe here)
A Safe and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all!
From the Sujon Team.

A long established Sujon classic. This fantastic Blackcurrant Pie recipe made with whole fruit is delicious. Serve it with a scoop of ice-cream, whipped cream or your favourite yogurt.

Serve: 4  Prep: 35 minutes Cook: 25-30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 200 grams plain white flourblackcurrant-pie-web-size
  • a pinch of salt
  • 120 grams butter
  • 50 grams castor sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups Sujon Frozen Blackcurrants
  • 1/8 cup of plain white flour
  • 1/2 cup of caster sugar
  • a little extra beaten egg

Sweet Pastry:

  • Sift the first measure of flour and salt into a large bowl or food processor.
  • Cut the butter into small cubes and rub into the flour either with your hands or using the food processor, until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  • Whisk the castor sugar and egg together and add to the mixture to make a firm dough.
  • On a lightly floured bench knead the mixture until it forms a smooth ball.
  • Handle as little as possible to prevent the pastry from becoming hard when baked.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 20 minutes.

Pie:

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C
  • On a lightly floured board carefully roll out half of the pastry until it’s approximately 5mm thick.
  • Take half the dough and line a small 20cm pie dish with the pastry.
  • Just before adding the Sujon blackcurrant to the pie base, toss them together with the 2nd measure of flour and caster sugar. Pile the floured Sujon blackcurrants into the pie base.
  • Roll out second dough on floured surface to size of your pie dish. Cut into twelve 1-inch-wide strips. Arrange 6 strips across pie. Form lattice by arranging 6 strips diagonally across first strips. Gently press ends into crust edges.
  • With a pastry brush, lightly coat the top with a little extra beaten egg.
  • Bake for 25 to 35 minutes or until the pastry is gorgeously golden.

This delicious Berry Chia Jam was made by Elite Athletes- Annika Pfitzinger and Hamish Carson of New Zealand… Thanks guys!

I’m super excited that we can share this recipe with you all, as its very versatile and tasty, without the refined sugar! It can be used as a scrumptious spread on bread, scones or muffins… whichever takes your fancy 😀

Chia jamIngredients 

2tbsp chia seeds
1 cup frozen Sujon frozen berries-slightly defrosted
1tsp Sujon Blackcurrant powder
Juice of half a lemon
1tsp honey or maple syrup

Directions

Mix all ingredients in a bowl, crushing berries slightly. Adjust lemon juice and maple syrup to taste. Leave for 1-2 hrs in the fridge to allow the seeds to absorb the liquid and thicken the jam.

Store in an air-tight container in the fridge and the jam will last about one week. If you don’t think you will use it all up within a week, you could freeze the jam into ice cube trays for single use.

…It also goes great with cashew cream on banana bread!

Quinoa (pronounced ‘Keen-wa’) is a complete protein and fantastic wheat-free alternative. It is one of the few plant foods that contain all nine essential amino acids. It is also high in fibre, magnesium, B-vitamins, iron, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin E and various beneficial antioxidants.

Quinoa porridge with berries and spices is a fantastic way to start your day!
