Citrus Berry Terrine
Dorie Greenspan's new book, Around My French Table, is here! It arrived while I was on vacation and it was like receiving an unexpected birthday present.
I was so excited that despite tons of laundry and plowing through the mail the day after vacation, we went to the farm market and bought berries so I could try the beautiful Citrus Berry Terrine. This is a rather simple prep: you soften some unflavored gelatin in water, boil some orange juice with a little sugar, then mix together and refrigerate until the gelatin is the consistency of egg whites. Then you mix in blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, orange pieces and grapefruit pieces. Put into a loaf pan and refrigerate. The result is a beautiful dish that is almost all fruit. Lovely!
I've already signed up for the new group, French Fridays with Dorie, which will be cooking through this new book beginning in October. What a lot of good eating we have ahead of ourselves!
