Une Jolie Gelée De Porto~
This is so pretty! And Easy..Remember that beautiful blog I mentioned to you a few times?
La Casserole Carrée?
That's where I found this little treat that had my husband's name stamped on it..
He is a lover of Porto~And Bread..And Cheese..and Wine~:)And some Ales~..
And I..just loved the look of it~
The above is after a sliver had been removed:)
Courtesy of the above beautiful blog~
1 Cup good quality Porto
1/2 cup raisins
1 1/2 tsps gelatin.
In a small bowl.. combine the Port..and raisins and let the flavors meld ap 1 hrs..
Place all in a small saucepan..
Sprinkle the gelatin over..and let it bloom for a few minutes..
Warm over low heat until all the gelatin is dissolved..
Remove from heat and let sit until it becomes room temp.
Strain through a Chinois....very very fine sieve..
Reserve the raisins..
pour the Port mixture in small molds..
I made 2 of the small molds that I showed you here..
Place in refrigerator for ap. 3 hrs..
To unmold.. moisten the mold with warm water..
It will pop out~
I made 2..
Slice thinly upon appetizer presentation and place on a slice of baguette or crostini.. top w/ a strong delicious cheddar or really any delicious cheese ..
It's really very good..
You can also add the raisins..the Porto raisins:)I found mine chewy and sticky..I think a light chutney would be better because of my poor raisins:)
I will make this again~
With a home made baguette..it's even better..add beautiful French Flair background and foreground..and le tour est joué~
C'est vraiment beau et bon~
