Sweet treats: Baileys & praline truffles

Yesterday I promised you a recipe for some sweet treats that you could give as gifts and here they are:  Bailey truffles and praline truffles.  Anybody who receives these will not be disappointed, I promise.

If giving as a gift – just pop them in a plain white dish, wrap in brown paper, tie with some ribbon and attach a tag – it’ll look very chic and will be hugely appreciated!

Truffles

Baileys truffles

Ingredients

  • 125g 70% cocoa dark chocolate, chopped
  • 125g milk chocolate, chopped
  • 125g unsalted butter
  • 1/2tsp sea salt
  • 125ml double cream
  • 125ml Baileys or Irish cream
  • Enough crushed Cadbury’s Flakes, grated milk chocolate or cocoa powder for coating

Method

  1. In a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, put both chocolates, the salt and butter, and leave to melt.
  2. Once melted, whisk in the cream, followed by the Baileys.
  3. Put in the fridge for a minimum of 3 hours to allow the ganache to set.
  4. Once set you’re ready to get making the truffles!  Take a teaspoon and scoop out enough of the ganache to form small, one bite truffles (ours got bigger and bigger as we went along!)
  5. Immediately roll the truffle in whichever coating you’ve opted for, and pop in the freezer for about an hour.

Praline Truffles

Ingredients

For the praline

  • 60g nuts of your choice, skinned and roasted (my fav are hazelnuts). Most praline is made from hazelnuts or almonds, however, any nut will work.  Different nuts will give the praline a different flavour.
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 45ml water

For the ganache

  • 180g milk chocolate, chopped
  • 70g 70% cocoa dark chocolate, chopped
  • 50g unsalted butter
  • 120ml double cream
  • 1/2tsp sea salt

For the coating

  • Finely chopped hazelnuts or cocoa powder

Method

To make the praline

  1. Line a baking tray or tin with greaseproof paper.
  2. Chop the skinned and roasted nuts and put to one side.
  3. Put the sugar and water in a heavy-based saucepan, and gently heat over a low-heat, shaking the pan occasionally until all the sugar has dissolved.  DO NOT STIR THE MIXTURE DURING THIS STAGE.
  4. Once all the sugar has dissolved, turn up the heat, so the mixture comes to a boil.  When it’s turned a golden brown colour it’s ready.  If you’re using a sugar thermometer, the mixture is ready when the temperature reaches around 160-177ºC (320-350ºF).
  5. Take off the heat and quickly stir in the chopped nuts.  Pour onto the lined baking tray or tin, and leave to completely cool.
  6. Once it’s completely cooled, break into pieces, put into a food processor and whizz as finely as possible.  If you don’t have a food processor or grinder, then with a bit of elbow grease, this can be done with a pestle and mortar.  And if you don’t have one of those, put the praline in a zip lock bag and bash hard with a rolling pin or other similar tool.
  7. Put in an airtight container until ready to use.

Making the ganache

  1. In a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, put both chocolates, the salt and butter, and leave to melt.
  2. Once melted, whisk in the double cream and fold in the praline you made earlier.
  3. Put in the fridge for a minimum of 3 hours to let the ganache set.
  4. Once set, roll into small, bite-sized balls and cover in either chopped hazelnuts or cocoa powder.
  5. Put in the freezer to harden for around an hour or so.

Domestic Princess tips

  1. When melting the chocolate, be very careful not to let any water drip into the chocolate, as this will cause the mixture to seize.
  2. In the case of both truffles, for a richer flavour, use all dark chocolate.
  3. The Baileys can be substituted for any liquer:  Cointreau, Grand Marnier and rum would all work really well.
  4. When rolling the truffles, speed is your friend.
  5. Keep half the mixture in the freezer whilst you roll them.
  6. These taste best straight from the fridge.

Remember to save a few for you to enjoy!

With much truffley love

Spiced Apple Chutney

Whenever we go to somebody’s house for supper I always like to take a gift for the hosts to say thank you.  Sometimes a bottle of Champagne, sometimes wine, occasionally flowers (it’s tough to get decent flowers here), now and again chocolates, or a small gift that I think they would love.  Sometimes though, I like to take a homemade gift, as it somehow feels a bit more special.  Homemade gifts are especially good if you’re on a tight budget, which can so often be the case at this time of year.

I’m not particularly a chutney fan, although two of the most important people in my life, The Domestic Prince & King are, so I thought I would create a chutney that would be perfect with cold meats, cheeses and crackers or crusty bread, or could be popped into a stylish Kilner jar and given as a gift.

Spiced Apple Chutney

Makes approximately 1.2kg

Ingredients

  • 1kg apples (I used Jazz apples, but any eating apples would work), peeled, cored and chopped into small pieces
  • 200g finely chopped shallots
  • 300g sultanas, raisins, chopped dates or figs
  • 200g demerara sugar
  • 200g dark muscovado sugar
  • 250ml white wine vinegar
  • 250ml apple cider vinegar
  • 5g smoked or regular paprika
  • 15g freshly grated ginger
  • 10g ground all spice
  • 5g ground cloves
  • 15g mixed spice
  • 2tsp of sea salt or 1tsp of table salt
  • A good grind of freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Put all the ingredients into a large heavy-based saucepan or casserole dish (I used my 28cm Le Creuset) and slowly bring to the boil.
  2. Simmer for 2 to 2.5 hours, stirring every so often to make sure the chutney doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan.
  3. As it simmers away, the liquid will reduce until it becomes very thick and has a glossy look.  You’ll know it’s ready when you can drag a wooden spoon through the chutney and it reveals the base of the pan that doesn’t immediately rush back together.
  4. Pour the hot chutney into sterilised jars (either put them through a full cycle in the dishwasher, or in a low oven at 110C for 10 to 15 minutes), seal and leave to cool.

Domestic Princess tips:

  1. This is a piquant, sweet chutney that would be perfect with a baked brie or camembert and hunks of crusty french bread.
  2. If you wanted to give this a bit more fire, then add a finely chopped birds eye chilli.
  3. You can swap the shallots for regular onions, or red ones would work well too.
  4. If you don’t have any muscovado sugar in the house, any brown sugar will work, or all demerara.
  5. For a more mature chutney, store in a cool dark cupboard for a week or two before consuming.

As I said, I’m not a chutney fan, having confessed that, I must admit that I did enjoy this with some cheese for my lunch today.  I continually surprise myself!

Tomorrow’s post, will be all about sweet treats that make perfect gifts.

With much love

Discover: Penderyn Distillery – a Welsh Whisky Masterclass

It’s been quite awhile since we’ve had the pleasure of hearing from The Domestic King on these pretty pink pages, but I’m delighted to say he’s finally back!!  So, without further ado, take it away Domestic King!

Birthday presents don’t come much better than this – a Masterclass at the Penderyn Distillery in South Wales! It was a wonderful surprise from the Domestic Prince and Princess who know my liking for a wee dram or two of whisky. My love affair with Penderyn Whisky began a few years ago – from the first sip of the straw-hued liquid I was hooked! So the Masterclass was a great way to find out what makes Welsh Whisky so special and distinctive.

It takes its name from its location, the tiny rural village of Penderyn sited just one mile inside the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park, about six miles north of Aberdare. It’s  easily accessible from the major cities and towns of the South Wales valleys via the Heads of Valleys Road. History buffs will be familiar with the village through Welsh folk hero Dic Penderyn, the legendary working-class martyr involved in the Merthyr Rising of 1831, who lived in the village. He was wrongfully executed for a stabbing he did not commit, his name forever associated with the Red Flag of social justice.

Established in 1999 by the Welsh Whisky Company, the Distillery released its first single malt on St David’s Day 2004, the start of a great Welsh industry success story. The secrets of “the smoothest wysgi on Earth” are revealed in the Masterclass in the Visitor Centre, housed under the same roof as the Distillery. Without a doubt, a ‘must-do’ experience for anyone wishing to know and understand more about a truly unique series of whiskies.

The Masterclass

Prepare for two and half absorbing hours as you embark on a fascinating journey of enjoyment and discovery. Our presenter was Euan, an amiable Scot of all people, a graduate biologist, and extremely knowledgeable with great communication skills. In the comfort of a smart, carefully prepared studio, we learned about the history of distillation in Wales, the characteristics of malt whisky compared with other types of whisky, and what distinguished malt from blended whiskies. This background information helped us to understand better the malt whisky production process, and specifically, the uniqueness of the Welsh whisky process. This part of the Masterclass unlocked the secrets of Penderyn’s superior quality! “Uniqueness” really does define Penderyn’s distillation process.

The malting, milling, mashing and fermentation process to produce the barley wash is undertaken for the Distillery by the famous Brains Brewery in Cardiff. This 8% ABV wash (Alcohol By Volume) is then distilled at Penderyn in a unique copper still that produces alcohol spirit called ‘newmake spirit’ measuring a huge 92% ABV. This is much higher than the Scottish distilleries where the average spirit is 65% ABV. The great advantage of the 92% spirit is it matures into saleable whisky at a much quicker rate when transferred to wooden casks. Its unique smoothness is also attributed to this process. At this maturation stage, very pure mountain water from the Brecon Beacons is added to the ‘newmake spirit’ pumped directly from a well beneath the Distillery. The whiskies acquire their unique flavours and colour from maturing in used Bourbon and Madeira barrels to produce Penderyn Madeira and Penderyn Sherrywood whiskies, and in used smoky Scottish Islay whisky casks to produce the Peated Penderyn.

Almost uniquely, Penderyn bottles its whisky on site, reducing its strength to 46% ABV by adding pure mountain water from its well beneath the Distillery. Now that must be unique! And as a proud Welshman, I am convinced it enhances the smoothness of this delicate straw-hued liquid gold!

The climax of the Masterclass was the tasting. Although an enthusiastic learner who enjoyed the whole of Euan’s presentation, it was the expectation of the tasting that excited my emotions! Euan quickly exploded the myth that it is a cardinal sin to add water to malt whisky. His advice was, it should be the tiniest amount, “a tear drop”! The best way to achieve this, he said, is to fill a whisky glass with water, empty it, and then add a measure of single malt. The effect is to release myriad aromas (a smell detection challenge!) as well as impacting on the flavour and drinking sensation. Great advice to someone who not a few times has ‘drowned’ the whisky with an equal measure of water, totally destroying the drinking experience! My Penderyn training will certainly ensure the tasting ‘protocol’ becomes a whisky-drinking ritual.

Euan concluded the Tasting Session by emphasising Penderyn is a small distillery producing premium quality whisky. The secret of achieving consistently excellent whisky, he informed us, lies in the Unique Penderyn Five! Go on, indulge yourself, or a loved one, and take a trip to Penderyn to solve the UPF!

It is no accident that the brand includes a gold flash melded onto each bottle above which are the letters ‘AC’, the abbreviation for ‘Aur Cymru’ – Welsh Gold, a gold liquid synonymous with the much sought after rare and precious Welsh gold.

In addition to the award winning Madeira whisky (a Gold Medal at the International Whisky Competition 2012) and the wonderful Sherrywood and Peated whiskies, the Distillery produces, from time to time, limited edition whiskies usually around 60% ABV cask strength. More recently, the Company has extended its spirit range to include a gin, a vodka and Merlyn Cream Liqueur. The Brecon Gin is on my buying list for the Domestic Prince. The Merlyn, which is delicious, will probably find its way into someone’s Christmas stocking!

The Masterclass was, in every respect, a wonderful experience! The Distillery and its staff provided a warm, friendly welcome, together with great hospitality, and sent us on our way with a generous gift of three miniature whiskies in a tasting set – Madeira, Sherrywood and Peated to savour at leisure. Like the whisky itself, the Masterclass has a wonderfully long and lingering finish!

Wow!  Sounds like The Domestic King had a fabulous day and I’m thrilled he enjoyed it so much!  If you’re not a Welshie and fancy participating in The Masterclass and are wondering where to stay, please drop me an email and I can recommend some wonderful places.  You could combine it with a walk in the beautiful Brecon Beacons.  And if this post has got you yearning to try a drop (or two!) of Penderyn whisky, then it can be purchased from their website, in many Waitrose stores, my spiritual home (no pun intended!) Harrods, or check their website out for worldwide distributors.

Are any of you whisky lovers?  And have you tried Penderyn’s offerings?

With much love
The Domestic Princess

Father’s Day Gift Guide

Today’s post is dedicated to The Domestic King.  One of the hardest things about living in India is being away from friends and family, but for me, being away from The Domestic King was, and still is, the hardest wrench I’ve ever felt.  I quite simply adore him.  As I said in my introduction to his post on Parky’s Pub, if you were to have a wish list of what qualities a Papa would have, the Domestic King fits the bill to a tee.  Nothing is ever too much trouble, be it dashing up to London to help out our tenants in the Domestic abode, to coming out and helping us get settled in India, earning him the nickname “The Foreman!”  His generosity, both financially and emotionally knows no bounds.  The support he has given to us over the years leaves me speechless sometimes; I’m not sure what I did to deserve such an amazing Papa!  But the one thing I do know – I am truly and utterly grateful he is mine!!

So, to the Domestic King, who I know takes the time to read each and every post:  I love you with all my heart, you are one of the most important people in my life and I don’t know what I’d do without you.  Your unconditional love has seen me through many a tough time and for that I thank you.  You are quite simply THE best Papa a girl could ever wish for!

Just like Mothering Sunday, Father’s Day is all about celebrating and honouring the Fathers or paternal bonds we have in our lives, and typically this is done through a card and / or a gift.  I love buying presents for other people; taking the time to really think what they would like, and what would give them pleasure.  But buying a pressie for the Domestic King fills me with extra joy, as it gives me the opportunity to really show him how grateful we are for his love and support.  This year, we bought him a Kindle, as I suspected that when he was reading his iPad at night and getting drowsy, he was probably knocking himself out when he dropped it on himself!

You don’t necessarily have to buy a present to show you’re thinking of your Dad, just a simple ‘phone call saying how much you love and appreciate him would be just as lovely!  Or, how about writing him a letter telling him how important he is in your life?  And to those readers whose father is no longer in your life, find a way to celebrate his life, and to remember the good times you spent together.

If you are looking to buy your Dad a gift, I’m hoping today’s post will help you find the perfect present for him for Father’s Day, which this year is on Sunday 17th June.
