(Caramelised) Nuts for Christmas

Though I haven’t been doing much cooking while in London, I’ve managed to make these nuts three times and I think that calls for a celebration. Here’s a makeshift recipe so you can join in on the festivities:

Fruit Leather – for Eating, not for Seating

This is a real mind-blower. With very little effort I’ve transformed two large apples and a plum into something weird and wonderful: Fruit leather. It’s a concept I was first introduced to a few weeks ago on one of my favourite food shows “River Cottage: Winter’s On The Way”, a Channel 4 programme that made its way to Danish television. And thank someone upstairs for that. It’s packed with great ideas for finding and cooking locally grown and cheap produce. But more about that in another post I have planned for you. Today is leather day!

Do Try This at Home

I was making a cake for a party in our apartment building and decided to do a remake-over of the popular Victoria Sandwich, I’ve already shown you (see post from the 24th of July).

Here’s the good stuff I stuffed into it: stewed pear and cinnamon whip (for the lack of a better word).






The “how-to”:
Dice up four pears (it’s okay if they’re rather hard) & one apple and boil ‘em up in three decilitres (dl.) of water, about 1/4 dl. of brown sugar and 1/2 dl. of regular sugar (or more, if you like it sweeter). Add one star anis, the rind of 1/4 lemon and the juice of 1/2 lemon.

When it starts boiling turn it down slightly and let it simmer for about an hour or until the fruit is transparent and the juice is nice and thick. The star anis and the brown sugar are absolutely essential if you want that velvety caramel flavour and a distinct pear taste. Uhmm, and then a dollop of crème fraiche gently folded into some whipped cream mixed with cinnamon and a tiny bit of icing sugar. It’s pure happiness in a silver spoon.
