Matcha Panna Cotta #InspiredbyNature #TastyParTEA #Sponsor


This morning I am wrapping up the #TastyParTEA online event. You can read all the details - meet the other bloggers, view our posting schedule, and enter the giveaway - at my kick-off post. We have seen some amazing tea-filled recipes thanks to some talented, creative food bloggers. Stay tuned for my round-up where you can go to see all of the recipes together.


A few notes about matcha green tea. Matcha is "powdered tea." Unlike drinking other tea when you infuse the tea leaves in water and, then, strain out the leaves, with matcha, you are drinking the finely powdered leaves whisked into hot water. So, spring for the best quality of matcha that you can. There's culinary grade and ceremonial grade. I use ceremonial grade if I'm whisking and drinking; I use culinary grade for baking and cooking.


Ingredients makes eight 2-ounce servings
  • 1 envelope gelatin
  • 1/4 C cold water
  • 1-3/4 C organic heavy cream
  • 1/4 C organic whole milk
  • 1/2 C organic granulated sugar
  • 1 t pure vanilla extract
  • 3 T matcha green tea powder*
*You can reduce the amount of matcha - and then reduce the sugar - if you don't want it, or need it, to be a vibrant green.


Procedure
Dissolve the gelatin in cold water in a medium mixing bowl.
 

Place all the other ingredients in a medium saucepan and heat till it begins to steam. Do not let it boil. Whisk until smooth. Let cool for 10 minutes, then pour the warm cream into the gelatin and stir till completely dissolved. 


Pour the mixture into your serving containers, leaving a little bit of space at the top - in case you want to top it with any sauce or whipped cream. 



Let chill until set, but at least four hours. Serve cold.


I skipped any adornments and just served it plain. It was creamy with just the right amount of sweet and bitter. Oh, it was lovely!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams. Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an
