Jubal makes Pelamushi
« on: January 27, 2017, 09:37:22 PM »
PELAMUSHI


I did some cooking recently!

Ingredients were 70g flour, 30g cornflour, 1tbsp sugar, 500mls badagi (hand-squeezed grape juice, simmered down to half volume to boost sugar content).




Mixed the flour/sugar/cornflour with half the badagi, stirred until smooth, then slowly stirred that mixture into the other half of the badagi in a pan. Then heated and stirred a lot and that was about it - it thickened far faster than the recipe said as I was making half quantity, it was a very quick thing to make in the end (and very tough stirring once it had started to thicken!).

And here's the result, a Georgian pelamushi - it has a very interesting sweet grape-y taste, a slightly thicker/heavier consistency and more structural integrity than a jelly, though quite smooth textured. It's very nice, though I probably won't make them often as this took 2 kilos of grapes to make!

Looks cool, is that popcorn or nuts on top? :)


Is that like a dessert or snack?

Walnuts - though there are lots of other things you can use there, I've seen hazelnuts and blueberries and various other things used online. It's very definitely a dessert; I found quite a small slice of that thing was ample for a dessert course!

Interesting, at first I thought it was a massive chicken breast :p

I breeds 'em big :P

But yeah, I see the resemblance now you mention it! You can get them a much darker purple colour if you have darker grapes, I just used normal red grapes (and a few white) to make the badagi for this.

Looks a bit like a giant baby rat brain.

Dunno, I've forgotten to pack a lunch a few times but I haven't been that hungry yet.

Spend a few years as a postgrad and you'll get there at some point.

Nice job! But is it vegan? Because that's important to me even though I'm never going to come into contact with it. ;)

It is vegan, so when you have a mid-life crisis and stop eating meat and animal products you can ask me for the recipe :P

Sorry, I'm veganitarian, I'll only eat it if it's made from freshly squeezed vegans.

Well if I go back to the lightside and stop eating animals maybe I will attempt to make pelushi. Until then baby rat brains will suffice.
