Ideas for dinner tonight. Household and kitchen tips, recipes, tweaks. What's worked great, and not so great.
I made some key lime pie the other day, was busy preparing dinner for company & asked my son, Xander, if he’d whip up some cream for the pie topping. He’s a very good cook, creative, imaginative, has amazing taste buds. It’s fun to play ” what’s in this recipe” with him. I’ll give him a bite of something, and he will tell me every little ingredient in it. I only stumped him once with cardamom. But not really. He took a bite, said ” I’ve tasted this before in Tanzania”, but didn’t know the name. I gave him several spices to taste, including the secret ingredient. Needless to say- he nailed it! Go Xan!
Anyway, he didn’t want to just whip up some cream. He wanted more flavor than that. His idea was to add some fresh lemon zest, & a touch of raw, organic honey. It was out of this world good. Not only was it perfect on the pie, but it’s great in coffee, with fruit, on ice cream. I’m sure it’s delicious anywhere you’d use whipped cream. It has a very delicate citrus flavor with a touch of sweetness. Try it, I’m certain you’ll be pleased. This group sure was!
For about 2 cups whipped cream you’ll need;
1-1 1/2 c heavy cream
Zest of almost 2 lemons
2 T raw honey, microwaved 8 seconds to liquify
Whip cream until stiff peaks form- ( careful here or you’ve got some delicious butter)
Gently fold in lemon zest & liquified honey.
