Popcorn is one of my favorite quick and filling snacks to make at home. I used to make it kettle corn style, but since cutting back on the (refined) sugar I try to leave that for every once in a while. To satisfy my sweet tooth I drizzled honey scented with rosewater over freshly popped popcorn. It’s a two minute dessert that’s fancied up a bit. I would’ve loved to have added chopped, toasted pistachios to mix in as well.
All you have to do is make popcorn, heat the honey up to a more runny consistency, then add a splash of rosewater. Drizzle on top and mix to combine. Best eaten immediately as the honey will make the popcorn go stale if stored. To make this vegan you can replace the honey with maple syrup, agave, or honey flavored agave.
I’ll be upfront with you: I was running short on time today and this was the quickest thing I could think of. I already had strawberries and heavy cream on hand, or so I thought. Turns out I used up the rest of my heavy cream. But I already made the biscuits and diced the strawberries! Luckily we had ricotta in the fridge from making fried zucchini blossoms last night (which were delicious!), so I loosened it with some milk and ta da, a suitable replacement for heavy cream.
So, the biscuits. They were made with a combination of rye, whole wheat pastry flour, and all purpose flour. Quickly mixed with some butter, baking powder, and milk, then baked in the oven. All in about 5 minutes!
The ricotta was thinned out with some milk, then scented with a splash of rosewater. Put some diced strawberries on top then drizzle with a bit of honey. That was quick!
