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
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 !!
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)
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.
