The afternoon is bright, with spring in the air, a mild March afternoon
- Antonio Machado

March welcomes the first changes from one season to the next, hinting at warmth and sunshine, the coming of springtime for some of us, the chilly days of winter for others. The light is changing swiftly as the days begin to get longer, the air feels differently against our skin and we find ourselves walking with a bounce in our step. We scurry to the market to see what has changed, in the mood to refresh our repertoire with whatever the new season will be bringing with her.

So let’s add a bit of spice to our lives with this change of season challenge, shall we? And gather up the best of the fruit, whatever is available whether spring, summer, winter or autumn fruit, fresh or even frozen, and add a dash of spice to create something to jazz up the month of March. Be the harbingers of the coming season with something new, fresh and lively, incorporating both fruit and spice into one magnificent Macaron!

Now, be off with ye…. And cook up something sweet and fruity with a dash of spice, any you please, sweet or savory and bring something sensational to start off this new season!

Sugar & Spice and Everything….Fruity… make sure your macarons incorporate both a spice and a fruit, at least one of each.

Here are the rules of the game:
