Black cherry almond ripple semifreddo (Semifreddo de cerezas con almendras)














I think  maybe is  the first time that  Christmas is so close and  Im in  this state of mind (not even when my mother died) .
(sad and exausted)

All days is a fight, it's all so uncertain, you don't know what will happen, when we will be calmer anyway you  don't know
nothing.

And  of course I support the demands, and  this government has committed many injustices and caused a lot of pain.

 Oh well... I have started to put myself in Christmas spirit and decided that I want to start cooking  about Christmas.

This Black cherry Semifreddo is delicious for every season you can make with other fruits or with frozen cherries.

Sometimes  semifreddo is better than Ice cream and is really easy , usually I make at night, freeze and  you can serve to the following day.

Adapted from : Girl in the little red kitchen


lots of love to all !!





The recipe

Ingredients

3/4 cup granulated white sugar
4 large egg yolks
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup silvered almonds toasted
1 1/2 cups dark cherries pitted and halved
(can use frozen cherries)

Method

Line a loaf pan (9x5 inch 9x 13 cm) ) with plastic wrap letting the excess hang over from the sides .

In a double boiler whisk together the sugar and egg yolks until the sugar dissolves and the the egg yolks triple in size (about 6 minutes). The yolks will be plate and frothy. 

Using a stand mixer or by hand whip the heavy cream until it forms medium peaks. Carefully fold in half the egg yolks, making sure not to deflate too much of the whipped cream and then the remaining yolks.
Scraping down the bottom and sides of the bowl. Gently stir in the almond extract. 
Scoop about 1/3 of the mix  into your prepared pan and place 1/4 cup of almonds and about 1/2 cup of cherries .
Add more whipped cream and build layers so you end up with 3 total layers of filling and 1/4 cup almonds and 1/2 cup of cherries remaining to top.

Carefully fold over the excess plastic  wrap and place in the freezer to firm up for at least 4-6 hours.

Remove the semifreddo from the freezer, flip out onto the surface remove the plastic wrap and top with the remaining almonds and cherries.

  9. Hi Gloria, Hopefully some of Chile's issues will be resolved sooner rather than later and things will calm down...and the people will feel like they have hope for a better life. As for the semifreddo, I have never had it but it sounds and looks great. Love dark cherries too...and we just made thumbprint cookies with apricot jam in the middle! Yum! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  15. Gloria, I’m so sorry you’re having a rough time this year. I’ve been following the news, and can imagine it’s very difficult for everyone in Santiago and all of Chile.

    Thanks so much for a wonderful recipe! Well I know you say that we can use frozen cherries, I want to wait until we can get fresh ones (and when the weather is warmer). xo
