ingverčki
No pa mi je le uspelo napisati in objaviti objavo. Bil je natrpan mesec in še bo natrpano en čas, vendar sem si vseeno morala vzeti čas in vam predstaviti tale recept. Tile keksi vam bodo všeč in to res ne pretiravam, super so. So zelo preprosti za naredit, ni potrebno čakati, da masa počiva, super se zamrznejo, krema pa je zelo vsestranska, jaz jo velikokrat uporabljam tudi kot polnilo za makrone. Všeč vam bodo tudi, če nimate radi ingverja, obljubim. Recept sem dobila od gospe Milene, ki je s temi piškoti zmagala na tekmovanju za piškot leta, na seminarju v Ljubljani nam jih je prišla predstaviti in takoj sem jih vzljubila. Od takrat naprej, sem jih naredila že večkrat, toliko krat, da sem porabila že vso ingverjevo marmelado, ki sem jo objavila prejšnjič, tako da jo bom morala narediti še več:)
V originalnem receptu je sicer mandelj, jaz sem uporabila lešnik, ker mi je okus ljubši, tudi ingverjeve marmelade ni v originalnem receptu, gospa Milena je uporabila kar sveži ingver in pa kandiran ingver, vaša izbira, kar vam je ljubše. Pa da ne bom več dolgovezila, bom skočila kar na recept, uživajte 😉

Recept za piškote:
250 g moke (jaz sem kombinirala navadno in pirino)
180 g zmehčanega masla (če ga nimate pripravljenega, ga preprosto zavijte v peki papir in udarjajte po njem z valjarjem, takoj se vam bo zmehčal;))
100 g sladkorja v prahu
1 rumenjak
75 g mletih lešnikov (ali mandljev)
2 žlici kakava
1 velika žlica ingverjeve marmelade
cimet in limonina lupinica poljubno

Vse sestavine zmešajte v testo, oblikujte majhne kroglice, naredite globoke vdolbinice (saj se med peko sploščijo) in jih položite na peki papir. Pecite na 180 °C  –>10- 12 min
Ko so pečeni, jih popolnoma ohladite, preden jih napolnite s kremo.

Recept za ingverjevo kremo:
100 ml smetane
200 g bele čokolade
50 g ingverjeve marmelade

Vse sestavine zmešajte skupaj in jih nad vodno paro stopite v lepo mazljivo kremo, preden jih lahko uporabite kot polnilo, jih vsaj za kakšno uro postavite v hladilnik, da se lepo strdi in ni več tekoča. Krema se tudi lepo zamrzne, tako da če vam je kaj ostane (kar je meni je) jo lahko naslednjič preprosto odtalite in uporabite za drugo rundo piškotov 😉

OPOMBA:  Jaz sem imela še nekaj kandiranega ingverja, zato sem ga narezala na male kockice in ga položila na vsak keks, preden sem ga napolnila s kremo, dekorirala sem jih z stopljeno temno čokolado.

Ginger cookies
I finally got around on posting something, and I guarantee you that you will love what I have prepared for you today. These cookies are to die for, the are also so easy to make, and you can´t not love that 🙂 I also usedup all my ginger jam, that I posted in my last post, so I will have to make more. If you dont have this brilliant jam, you could use fresh or candied ginger instead. You could also substitute the hazelnuts or almonds, but I like the taste of hazelnuts better, so your choice.  But enough talking let go to the recipe.

Recipe for the cookies:
250 g flour (I used a combination of plaine and spelled flour)
180 g softened butter (If it is not softened, just wrap it in parchment paper and hit it a few times with a roller, work like a charm;))
75 g of crushed hazelnuts (or almonds)
100 g powdered sugar
2 tbs cocoa
1 tbs of ginger jam
1 egg yolk
cinnamon and lemon zest, optional

Preheat your oven to 180°C  /356 °F. Mix all the ingredients together in a soft dough, make little balls, put it on a parchment paper and press little holes in the middle of the cookie. Bake for 10-12 min. Cool completely before filling it with cream.

Recipe for the Ginger cream:
100 ml cream
200 g of white chocolate
50 g of ginger jam

Mix together the ingredients and melt them over a water bath, let it firm up in the refrigerator at least 1 hour, before using it. This cream also freezes very good, so if you have leftovers, just freeze it, or you could also use it as a macaron filling, njam:)

P.S. I had some leftover candid ginger, so I cut it in to small pieces and placed it on eich cookie, before filling it with cream, I also decorated it with some melted dark chocolate.

Ingverjeva marmelada / Ginger jam

Elektrika, ne cenimo je dovolj!  Je tudi vam zmanjkalo električnega toka? Mi ga nismo imeli 4 dni in v tem dneh sem resnično spoznala, kaj to pomeni biti brez elektrike, groza. Vsako jutro sem se zbujala slabe volje, premražena, nato pa se zabijala v vsako stvar, ki mi je stala na poti.  Skratka, upam da imajo do zdaj že vsi elektriko in da se lepo grejejo v topli in osvetljeni hiši. Ker pa je sedaj na splošno čas, ko nas vse zebe in smo bolni, vam predstavljam recept, ki vam bo pomagal pri prehladu, v bistvu je tale marmelada dobra za vse. Jaz sem jo prvič poskusila pri cimri od sestre. Od takrat ven ji težim za recept, ko pa mi ga je končno posredovala, sem ga seveda izgubila, zato se malo prebrskala internet ter sem ga ponovno našla. Je sila preprosto za naredit in ker tega ne moremo zaužiti ravno v velikih količinah vam bo ta količina zadostovala čez vso mrzlo obdobje 🙂
Marmelado jem kar na žlico, je značilno pekočega okusa, vendar meni je res dobra. Včasih si jo dam tudi v čaj, v planu pa imam tudi sladico, tako da stay tuned 😉

Glasbena podlaga: Video games

Recept
(recept sem prilagodila na količino ingverja, ki sem ga imela)
680 g ingverja
680 g limon (oz. približno toliko kot ingverja ;D)
300 g želirnega sladkorja (2:1)

Ingver olupite in narežite na male kocke. Limone stisnite in precedite. Ingver zmeljite v mešalniku,za lažje mletje dodajte kakšno žlico vode. Zmešajte skupaj želirni sladkor in ingver ter kuhajte 3-4 min. Odstavite in po 5 min dodajte limonin sok. Napolnite sterilizirane kozarce (najboljši so manjši kozarci, saj jih ob odprtju lahko hitro porabite) in dobro zaprite.

Ginger gam
The weather conditions here in Slovenia have been very drastic these couple of weeks, to say the least. Every thing was frozen, the forest and the electricity cables suffered the most damage. The electricity cables were damaged to the point where almost half of the Slovenes didn’t have electricity for days, some still don´t have it and it has been more than a week. I guess we were lucky because we didn’t have electricity for 4 days, but for me it seemed like a life time. It was cold, dark and annoying, but hopefully it will be better now. To avoid getting sick I cooked some ginger jam. I eat it with a spoon, I put it in my tee, and soon I will make a dessert with it, so it is very versatile. It is also very easy and quick to make, and because you can´t eat a lot of it, it will last you a long time, or at least during the cold weather 😉

Recipe
(I adjusted it to the weight of the ginger I had)
680 g ginger
680 g lemons
300 g gelling sugar (2:1)

Peel the ginger, cut it in to small pieces and mix it. To help the mixing you can add a tsp of water. Squeeze the lemons and filter the juice. Mix the ginger with the gelling sugar and cooked for 3.4 min. Remove from heat, wait a few minutes than add the lemon juice. Fill your jars and seal tight.
