Old fashioned Sweet Violet Syrup

Ingredients

  • 40 to 50g Sweet violets (about 3 to 4 handfuls)
  • 150ml Boiling water
  • 300g White caster sugar

Note

The syrup is great when added to icings and butter cream for cakes; and is wonderful when used in beverages too. Only a small amount is needed to add to sparkling wine or lemonade for a delectable and elegant drink.

Directions

Step 1 You will need a bain-marie for this recipe as well as a sterilised bottle that will hold 450ml (3/4 pint).
Step 2 Remove all of the stalks, green “peeps” in the middle of the violets and the leaves before putting al of the the flowers into a clean bowl, such as a Mason’s mixing bowl or a stainless steel bowl. Pour the boiling water over the flowers, then cover with a tea towel and allow the violets to infuse overnight or for 24 hours.
boilviolets
Step 3 Next day, put the violets and water into the bowl that fits on top of the bain-marie, then add the sugar and stir well. Bring the water in the bottom of the bain-marie to a rolling boil and then place the bowl with the violets over the boiling water; keep stirring the violet mixture until the sugar has completely dissolved. If you don’t have a bain-marie, place a suitable sized sauce pan on top of larger pan with water underneath and proceed as before.
Siftviolets
Step 4 Strain the violet mixture through a fine sieve, then bottle and label the syrup and keep in a cool place, or the fridge for up to 12 months. Use in cakes, scones, pancakes, icings, butter creams, ice creams, biscuits, beverages, cream puddings, custards, cakes etc.

Original Recipe from: Lavender and Loveage

Avocadocake

For 16-24 people

Bottom Layer:
3 Tb cocoa/cacoa
1/4 cup oats
1/2 cup dates/raisins (I use a mix of both)
1 Tb agave/maple syrup/honey
1/6 cup sprouted flour (or you can use ground flax seed, or ground nuts, buckwheat, etc.)
1 t vanilla extract
3 Tb coconut oil melted
1/4 shredded coconut (optional)
Handful of walnuts

Middle Layer:
1/4 cup cashew butter
2 Tb agave/maple syrup/honey
1 Tb coconut oil melted with 2 Tb coconut butter
1 avocado
1 banana
1 t vanilla extract
1/8 t turmeric

Top Layer: you could just use melted dark chocolate if you want
3 Tb agave/maple syrup/honey
3 Tb cocoa/cacoa
4 Tb melted coconut oil
1 t vanilla extract
Pinch of salt

For bottom layer, process all ingredients except walnuts until smooth. Add walnuts and process until the walnuts are in smaller pieces, but not totally ground up. It should taste and look like semi-crumbly chocolate coconut cookie. Press into baking pan lined with plastic wrap (or oil, or nothing) and refrigerate.

For middle layer, process all ingredients until smooth. Yes… it should be green. But taste it! Mhhhmmm. Carefully spread over bottom layer, making sure not to mix the layers. Put back in the fridge.

For top layer, blend all ingredients until smooth, adding water if needed. It should be like chocolate sauce. Mmm it tastes so dang good. I could eat a bowl of this.

Carefully pour top layer over other two layers, making sure not to mix them. Put back in the fridge one more time and let chill for 1-2 hours until hard, like real Nanaimo Bars.

Pull out of pan if you lined it with plastic wrap, and cut it into bars.

Christmas Traditions: Krumkaker

Krumkake is one of the original traditional 7 Christmas cookies to be served for Christmas each year in Norway.

They are baked in a special decorative two-sided iron griddle, similar to a waffle iron. While hot, the 13–20 cm krumkake are rolled into small cones around a wooden or plastic cone form. Krumkake can be eaten plain or filled with whipped cream (often Cloudberry Cream) or other fillings.

If you are allergic to chicken eggs, you can use egg-replacer or try duck eggs. I have tried that with success several times.

Ingredients:

  • 6 eggs (or equivalent of Egg-replacer)
  • 250 grams of sugar (2 cups)
  • 250 grams of melted butter
  • 250 grams of all purpose flour
  • 125 grams of potaoflour (1 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cardamom
  • 3 dl heavy cream / Whipping cream / milk or water (water makes the cookies extra crunchy)
  • 2 teaspoons of vanillasugar

Directions:

Whip egg and sugar until light yellow and fluffy

Add melted butter (cooled down), cream / milk or water.

Use 1 tablespoon dough in the middle of the iron griddle and cook until golden.

Immediately roll onto a Krumkake-roller and form before cooling down.

Enjoy!

Christmas Traditions: Grandma Elises’ Pepperkaker

  • ¾ dl dark syrup
  • 1 ½ dl water
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground lemon or grapefruit peel
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground clove

Bring to boil: sugar, syrup, water and margarine in a casserole.

Blend the spices in Cognac, add the mixture to the sugars and cool down.

Add the dry ingredients (All purpose flour, baking powder and baking soda), mix thoroughly and cool dough till next day.

Let it rest in room temperature for 2-3 hours before working it as it is easier to work when tempered.

Roll the dough thin (0,2-0,25 cm on a rough estimate) with a Rolling pin. Use cutting molds to carve cookies.

Cook in oven on a baking paper covered pan on 180C for about 5-10 minutes. Cool down.

Now its time to Decorate.

I made a Pepperkakehus:

To get proper windows use Gelatine plates

Pepperkakehus

Then we decorated a bunch of cookies in traditional christmas style (hearts in pink etc.)

However, in these 50 shades of Grey times, I made a few kinky cookies that I wrapped up for my boyfriend for Christmas.

I had so much fun making these after I saw some pictures on google some years ago.
