Ooh! unsalted butter and apricot jam! I became addicted in 1977 in a school somewhere in France and that's what I always had for breakfast on my hols. On biscottes, though, rather than baguettes.

In recent years I've had to share the jam with a son .. and the little blighter doesn't like apricot. The fig's not bad but it ain't the same.

Just as you can get good artisan made bread here (my son makes and sells his own bread locally) you can in France, but it may take more searching for, as unfortunately more and more small boulangeries are going out of business - though we did hear of some good news of a boulangerie reopening in a village near our friend in the Aude.

Please, if you possibly can, buy your bread and croissants from the local artisan boulangerie, rather than from the (often cheaper) supermarket a drive away.

Thats a strange choice!

I'd have swapped my son(s) rather than compromise on jam.

Two pots?

We were staying at le Moustir in Carnac this year and bought croisants from the site, they were awful, just like the ones you can get in Britain, soggy and tasteless.When we moved to Haliotis, we tried the croisants there and they were much more as you expect french ones to taste. However, in my opinion, the best croisants in France are from the girl who calls at Gandspette,they are freshly baked each morning by the bakery in the village, you have to be on the ball to catch her as there are usually crowds waiting for her!

We had the myrtille too.

Touring in a smallish car with a massive son who came along at the last moment ... there wasn't much room for spare jam.

I wouldn't swap him for the world. Might be tempted to freecycle his dad though
