Hello people! How is the festive period going? Did you all get the presents that you wished for?
We are having lots of fun here in our holiday kitchen. Christmas food is so good and it’s an essential part of our beautiful family memories.
We always look for things that are easy to prepare, and that take less time to cook. And the most important thing is to enjoy being in the kitchen. So for today we have prepared roasted pears with cinnamon, hazelnuts in puff pastry beds with wild strawberry jam. Delicious!
And here’s a fun fact – towns with an abundance of pear trees often included the word Perry in the name of the town. And another one is that before tobacco was introduced in Europe, pear leaves were smoked. If you want to know more about pears – click here.
I will now show you the way to prepare these gorgeous pastries.
- Puff pastry sheets (For 6 pastries you will need 6 sheets of puff pastry with size 10cm X 5cm)
- 2 pears
- ½ tsp of cinnamon
- 20 gr roasted hazelnuts
- 100 gr wild strawberry jam (a regular strawberry jam will work as well)
- Cut the pears into thin slices and layer on top of the sheets
- Sprinkle all of them with some cinnamon
- Bake for 20-30 minutes in a preheated oven to 180 degrees
- When you take them our, leave them to cool down and then finish with the roasted hazelnuts and a spoon of jam
Yes! That’s what you have to do. Using puff pastry is very easy. The fluffy results are sooo satisfying….
If you want some extra added flavor to your pastry beds, brush the sides with some coconut oil. It takes you in a whole different world.
Coconut oil contains lauric acid (monolaurin), which is known to reduce candida, fight bacteria and create a hostile environment for viruses. Many diseases today are caused by the overgrowth of bad bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasites in the body.
You can replace grains and sugar in your diet with coconut oil as your natural fuel source when you’re sick. Sugar feeds the growth of bad bacteria. Instead, take one tablespoon of coconut oil three times daily when sick, and consume plenty of vegetables and bone broth as well. (Source: draxe.com)
