When times got rough, the Bouchards got French. Faced with a struggling potato farming industry, the Bouchards moved their kitchen into their garage and began making mixes to share recipes their family had been enjoying for years. Similar to a crepe, Ployes (rhymes with boys), are thin, pancake-like treats made of a special light buckwheat flour. The Bouchards began making a mix for these French specialty foods after their oldest daughter returned from Louisiana with a mix for beneigts, a famous French dessert similar to a doughnut.
Lactose, sugar, fat and cholesterol-free, Bouchard’s Family Farm Ployes mix makes delicious, versatile Ployes, that can be served with any meal. They make a wonderful breakfast! And the good news is a Ployes from Bouchard’s Family Farm has fewer calories than a slice of bread! Fill them with fruit and roll them, use them as dumplings, or serve them alongside soup. Ployes add a healthy, homemade touch to any meal.
