I haven't done any handwork these days. I just had no time doing it because I was busy with taking care of animals and cooking. Instead, boiling jam or baking became one of my pleasure. Both jam and sweets are consumed well at our home so I try not to allow them to run out. I'd like to present two of them which I think it was successful.
1. Grate peeled carrots (200g) and a peeled apple.
2. Wash an orange well and slice thinly.
3. Simmer the fruits over a low heat with 150g sugar.
4. Add a spoon of lemon juice before turning off the heat.
I think carrots and oranges go well together. If you want to add some spices, cardamon would be nice. The jam goes perfectly with yoghurt cheese.
1. Mix 80g salad oil and 40g sugar in a bowl and add 80g jam and mix.
2. Add 200g flour and mix with a spatula.
3. Put the batter in a plastic bag and gather it and keep in fridge for a while.
4. Cut the batter in 8mm thickness and place them in oven.
5. Bake in a lower temperature.
Using kiwifruit jam, its black seeds will give an accent to the biscuit. I asked Khalil, "Guess what's in?" and he answered, "sesame" directly. No, it's a biscuit with fresh sweet taste without sesame. It was so good that we finished the plate at once. You'll put on wait, Khalil.
The above is a sernik, a Polish cheese cake, which I baked on Khalil's birthday. I used auz instead of butter, which I've kept in the freezer. Auz is the milk cows give on the first day of giving birth.
The top and the bottom biscuit is made from auz, flour, cacao powder and sugar. The inner dough is made from yoghurt cheese and auz, egg, sugar, orange skin, raisinsm lemon juice, etc. It take some work to bake this cake, such as beating the white and yellow of eggs separately or making biscuit dough so I bake just a few times a year. I like practical baking with simple ingredients by easy process. The same for handwork.
