TGRWT #6 Roundup part 2

Right, the first part of the roundup is done, half time is over, hope you’re all refreshed and ready for the second half. We’ll plunge right in with:

M of M’s Blog, who actually sent in two entries. The first is the evocatively named Beauties of Boskoop in Lavender Syrup. Now I would have to try these for the name alone, but they actually taste delicious as well. The second entry was in the true spirit of molecular gastronomy, a clarified Pinenut sauce with lavender and apple Juice. Thanks M

Lizet, a food historian and all around very interesting lady, entered a fantastic post. Her colours are fantastic, find out how she cooked her ‘hot lightning’ by checking out her blog here. Thanks Lizet, we hope to learn some more interesting historical food facts from you, and the roast6 berkshire pig sounds great.
Our esteemed creator of this event, Martin, found time to make this delicious apple and lavender cake, despite being a proud new father. Check out his recipe here, as well as his blog Khymos, if you are interested in other TGRWT challenges. And congratulations Martin!
Papin of Flavour Alchemy offered up a savoury side dish to a brunch frittata he was serving. He felt his Apple Subjee with Pancetta was too sweet, but in the Cape Malay tradition of cooking that I grew up with, a sweet fruit accompaniment to a savoury dish is quite normal. To find out what a subjee is , check out his post, as well as the rest of his very interesting blog.

Elizabeth of Blog from our kitchen made the divine sounding Apple, Lavender & Goat’s Cheese Tarts . She revisited her recipe and improved upon it so make sure you check out both posts. Thanks for your lovely contribution Elizabeth

Mansi from Fun and Food serves us an Apple & Pecan Cobbler paired with vanilla ice cream. That makes it a firm must make with me. Tell me that doesn’t make your mouth water. Thanks for your entry Mansi, I’m glad you made it to the party.

Fashionably late but oh so welcome is Delores of Chronicles in Culinary Curiosity, a fellow Daring Baker who brought some Apple and Lavender buns to the table. I’m so glad you tried these Delores, I know I’m going to.

And last through the door, so much so that I almost missed the party is yours truly. I brought with me a Sour Apple Sorbet with Lavender Langues du Chat. Delicious and they all go really well together.

Thanks to all my guests, I hope you’ve enjoyed! I certainly have. Don’t forget to link back so all your readers can share the feast.
Also, Papin from Flavour Alchemy will be hosting the next round so check out his blog for TGRWT #7, Caramelized Cauliflower and Cocoa
Papin also posted this delicious recipe on apple & lavender. After the roundup but well worth including.

    Excellent round up, Inge! And how smart were you to do it in two parts?

    Many thanks again for the stretch to try apples and lavender together. I’m looking forward to seeing what’s next on the TGRWT roster.

    Once again I wish I could have tasted the different contributions! The pictures and descriptions are so mouth watering. Inge – thanks for hosting and putting the round-up together.

    This month’s TGRWT has already been announced by Papin at Flavor alchemy. Foods to pair this time are caramelized cauliflower and cocoa.

    Great round up Inge! I really wanted to make some apple and lavender jam or jelly but things ran away with me.

    What a wonderful round up, Inge! I was so sad that I was unable to participate due to lack of lavender. :-( But, goodness, you had some really lovely contributions, and if I ever do find myself in possession of a windfall of culinary lavender, I will without a doubt know where to come prowling around for recipe ideas. :-)

    You can still try out some lavender Belinda. It’s gorgeous.
