There's nothing nicer than sitting down at brunch on a weekend to a table filled with handmade delicious goods. It's even nicer to extend this pleasure to the rest of the week by opening up little pots of heaven at one's need. Really, there's nothing worst than coming back to a sadly empty fridge on a post-work Monday night and shouting: WTF (Where's The Food?)
So I made myself a few pots of spreadable white chocolate, almonds & red-fruits cream , a perfect solution for midweek blues. And here is how I got started with this incredibly easy recipe:
Ingredients for 500 gr. of White & Red Harmony:
- 170 gr. excellent white chocolate (the most exquisit quality you find, the better)
- 100 ml. full double cream
- 1 tiny pinch of salt
- 125 gr. fresh blackberries
- 125 gr. fresh raspberries
- 150 gr. caster sugar
- 50 gr. peeled almonds
First thing first, you will need three saucepans for this recipe, so make sure you are equipped with them: one will be half filled with water to gently melt chocolate at baine marie mode. Once the chocolate has liquefied, add that bit of salt and white cream. Now, get those beutiful almonds (which are excellent to strenghten your immune system) and mince them with the help of an electric grinder, before inserting them into your white chocolate mixture. Let it all cool down in the fridge for 20 minutes.
In another saucepan, put the red-fruits fantasy, add the caster sugar and let it cook gently while crushing the fruits with the help of a wooden spoon for a few minutes. The reason why we're using caster sugar is simple: it mixes easily with the fruits, making the whole cooking process a lot quicker. Once this fruity pan comes to a boil, let it simmer for about 3 more minutes, then put it to rest in the fridge for 10 minutes.
At last, have ready a few marmalade pots, do make sure they're sterilized before use. Fill each one of them by alternating the white chocolate & almonds cream with the red fruits fantasy. Now your White & Red Harmonies are ready and you can store them in the fridge for about 15 days. You can enjoy this cream on a slice of bread. Or two. Or three, even.
Have a wonderful week!
