The French love their spreads in the morning, especially anything Bonne Maman. The sweet, checkered-top jars look like they contain a French grandmother's secret recipe, and their contents are not far off. This Bonne Maman chestnut spread ($7) is lesser known in America but incredibly popular in France. Spread it on toast, dollop atop yogurt or ice cream, bake it in a pound cake, or just take a spoon to the jar.
