Sometimes life is just too short to make your own pastry. I’ve been trying out Jus Rol, which is ready-made pastry. You can buy it in the supermarket and keep it in your fridge or even keep a roll or two in the freezer for when you might need it. The other week we stumbled across some ripe blackberries and decided to make a pie or two.
Jus Rol asked me to try out a couple of different products, so I made a pie with short crust pastry and one with puff pastry to ring the changes. Both came in an easy to use roll and are pie ready.
As well as being easy and quick to use, our pies tasted great. The pastry is good quality and has just the right texture: crunchy for shortcrust and flaky for puff. Delicious! I’ve been using Jus Rol for a number of years now and I’m likely to continue to do so as I do find it a very convenient way to make pastry items.
