Sesame Panna Cotta #TakeTheChallenge #SimplySesame #Sponsor

This is a sponsored post written on behalf of Simply Sesame. All opinions are my own.

I joined in the fun for the Simply Sesame Blogger Challenge and received three flavors of Simply Sesame to try: Vanilla with Almond Bits, Pistachio Morsels with a hint of Cardamom, and Pure Roasted Sesame.

First, I decided to try using it as I would tahini and made Charred Cauliflower for Thanksgiving.


Then, I whirled it into hummus; and we slathered it on toast. But, for the challenge, I wanted to try my hand at a Simply Sesame sweet and settled on creating a Sesame Panna Cotta. I made this recipe three times with each version of Simply Sesame I received. And, hands down, the family loved the batch made with Pure Roasted Sesame.



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 Simply Sesame paste
  • black sesame seeds for garnish

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.


To serve, garnish with black sesame seeds.

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!

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

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
