There are these special recipes and dishes that I know from my childhood. Semolina with sugar and cinnamon (and looots of butter :)), rice pudding, apple strudel, curd dumplings with nut crumbs, tomato soup with rice, homemade milk bread aka “Zopfn” with butter and jam made out of fruits from the garden,…
All these things my mum made herself, if possible with ingredients from our garden or the milk / eggs of our animals.
Since I grew up on a farm, I not only noticed how nice it is to have an own “supermarket” right on the doorstep, but also how easy and quick it is to cook your own dishes.
One of our most popular classics were / are “Amaletten” aka CREPES. But of course nobody said crepes to them. Crepes were only a thing at the Kirtag. With bananas and lots of chocolate spread. And then again some years later on Instagram and Pinterest and meanwhile also at our home. 😉
I still say Amaletten to them, but so that you know what I’m talking about, they’re called crepes here and now. Crepes with warm spicy pears to be exact.
We used to eat the crepes with jam. From time to time we were allowed to add sugar and cinnamon. SO GOOD!
Today I made the grown-up version with warm, caramelized, spicy pears. By the way, this is not a recipe developed by me, but is also written down in the family recipe book and was created by my mom. 🙂
Those pears. Where do I best start?
Some butter is caramelized with sugar and then extinguished with freshly squeezed orange juice. In this sweet bath, together with many spices, the pears are grilled until soft.
At the end the whole kitchen smells of orange peel and caramel…
These crepes with caramelized, spicy pears are made ridiculously easy and the taste HEAVENLY!
Of course this dish is
good amazing, just as it is, but with a scoop of vanilla ice cream this dessert reaches another level.
How about a winter pumpkin and coconut soup with quinoa and then the crepes with caramelized spicy pears? Both are great to prepare, full of good ingredients and absolutely PUR soulfood.
