My oinker-friend Bacon and his humans have a burger recipe for us – so I thought I’d publish a dessert recipe we did last weekend when cooking with 3 friends:
Rhubarb-Mascarpone-Dessert (serves four)
100 g sugar – € 0,07
500 g rhubarb € 0,63 (but we had it fresh from the garden)
one teaspoon orange peel (use organic orange without wax) – I bought an orange and grated the peel off – but I forgot to check the price of this, we used the slices, too
250 g Mascarpone € 1,49
3 Tablespoons Milk neglectable, from storage
1 Tablespoon orange-based liqueur neglectable, from storage (or more)
Amarettini € 1,49
Strawberries € 1,29 (more than you need!)
Lemon balm leaves (from the garden, just a few for decoration)
Total cost: € 4,97 (5,54 $) for four (if you do not have rhubarb in your garden, that is) – makes about € 1,25 per head. Or 1,39 $
Peel and chop rhubarb, grate the orange peel off, get sugar in a pan to caramelize, add rhubarb and orange peel.Let simmer till rhubarb is soft.
Mix mascarpone with milk and liqueur till it’s creamy, add the orange slices, if you do not want to waste a good orange, makes the cream more tastie, too. Crunch some of the Amarettini cookies, wash strawberries, take away green, cut in quarters, take some lemon balm leaves
Fill about two tablespoons of crushed cookies in high glass, drop some orange liqueur on it (we used Amaretto here), add one half of mascarpone mix, add cooled rhubarb mixture, add other half of mascarpone mix, decorate with strawberries, the left over cookies and lemon balm leaves.
