Greweling's Lemon Mint Ganache
I was excited to find my library has Greweling's Chocolates and Confections. And I've been loving our mint, so my first attempt was the lemon-mint ganache.
I got some El Rey Icoa. This is some fantastic white chocolate - it actually tastes like chocolate. I quartered the recipe, which seemed to work fine. I don't have a frame, so I lined a pyrex loaf pan with parchment, which worked ok except the ganache wasn't very even- it still tasted great :) My chocolate for dipping turned out to be out of temper, so far I'm 1 for 3 in getting my chocolate tempered. I think part of my challenge, besides needing practice, is the timing of 'emergencies' here with the little ones :) It's been fun trying out a few recipes - I'm hoping to become more proficient as I go along!
The lemon logs and the pecan chipotle brittle both looked really good, and I'm hoping to get to those yet before the 25th :)
