grtgrandpa – thoughts for you every day

El Señor de las Limas is made of a single block of jade, about 2 feet tall. The seated tattooed figure holds a were-jaguar or infant with a jaguar face, carved between 1000 and 600 BC.


Is the were-jaguar a human, animal, supernatural, god or sacrifice?


If I think about were-jaguars, where are my problems?
I’ll see you here tomorrow, I hope!

Today is Creme Brûlée Day! This is the one dessert I am never able to pass up. My favorite version is Earl Grey, which I make once a year for Easter. One time, I had a Creme Brûlée party where everyone got their own little torch to make their own caramel. It was both dangerous and fun.

The custard base is traditionally flavored with vanilla, but is also sometimes flavored with lemon or orange (zest), rosemary, chocolate, coffee, liqueurs, green tea, pistachio, coconut, or other fruit.

The earliest known reference of crème brûlée as we know it today appears in François Massialot’s 1691 cookbook, and the French name was used in the English translation of this book, but the 1731 edition of Massialot’s Cuisinier roial et bourgeois changed the name of the same recipe from “crème brûlée” to “crème anglaise”.

In Britain, a version of crème brûlée (known locally as ‘Trinity Cream’ or ‘Cambridge burnt cream’) was introduced at Trinity College, Cambridge in 1879 with the college arms “impressed on top of the cream with a branding iron”. The story goes that the recipe was from an Aberdeenshire country house and was offered by an undergraduate to the college cook, who turned it down.
In Catalan language; Crema catalana (‘Catalan cream’), crema cremada (‘Burnt cream’) or crema de Sant Josep, is a Catalan dish similar to crème brûlée. It is traditionally served on Saint Joseph’s Day, March 19, although nowadays it is consumed at all times of year. The custard is flavored with lemon or orange zest, and cinnamon. The sugar in crema catalana is traditionally caramelized under an iron broiler or with a specially made iron, not with a flame.

Crème brûlée is usually served in individual ramekins. Discs of caramel may be prepared separately and put on top just before serving, or the caramel may be formed directly on top of the custard, immediately before serving. To do this, sugar is sprinkled onto the custard, then caramelized under a broiler/salamander, with a butane torch.

Much love to all my friends here- I'm doing just great and hope the best for all.

So... I brought instant pudding (it didn't have to be authentic, after all) sugar and a blowtorch to camp. They made the pudding and I.... brulee'd... it. It was quite a production, involving singed paper bowls and quite a bit of time to make creme brulee for about 30 kids.

When it was all done, the kid that suggested it said "That's not creme brulee! Creme brulee is a kind of cake!"

Thanks for the creme brulee facts, VikingGF -- and happy anniversary ---
For the story, Goat --
And for the creme brulee cake, Strategery!

I'm super-tired and working on tomorrow's list is the nicest thing I can see myself doing. Thanks to everyone for this thread -- it's like a quiet little room for recovery. I so much look forward to seeing each person here every day!
