Oh, but I have many things to bake! Today, though, I whipped up some raspberry junket.
It is a Danish dessert (yeah, it says so right on the box), and I had never had it before, having grown up strictly on Jell-O in terms of gelatinous desserts. Though the fruit flavor is pretty artificial, the texture of the Junket is great–it’s like a smooth, more pudding-like texture than Jell-O. There are some recipes on the box, including one for a Junket pie that involves whipped cream and cream cheese, and really, anything with whipped cream and cream cheese is worth a try.
In sad news, my supposedly reliable fully automatic espresso machine (the Jura Capresso E8) is acting up. It keeps prompting me to OPEN TAP and then refusing to make coffee. I am in a panic over this. The thing cost a small fortune, but more importantly, I don’t know if I can live without my crema. I NEED MY CREMA.
