Duck Biscuits with Cilantro Jelly

Serves 6 as Dessert.

This is dessert 4 of the 7 desserts I made for the Supreme eGullet Pastry and Baking Challenge: Round 4


Biscuit

  • 100 g Duck Fat
  • 150 g Pastry Flour
  • 50 fl oz Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Star Anise

Jelly

  • 100 g Sugar
  • 70 g Water
  • 4 T Rice Wine Vinegar
  • 1/4 pt Pectin
  • 1 pkg Cilantro

To make the biscuits, first put the duck fat in the freezer. Mix the flour, sugar and star anise together and place in the freezer for an hour. Use a grater to grate in the duck fat and mix gently to coat. Add in a few tablespoons of cold water and mix until the dough comes together. Wrap it up in some plastic wrap and let it chill for an hour so the dough can absorb the moisture.

Roll out the dough and bake at 350F until the edges are golden. Cut the biscuits while they are still hot and let them cool to room temperature.

To make the jelly, combine the sugar, water & pectin in a measuring cup and let it cook in the microwave until boiling. Add in the rice wine vinegar, cook for a while longer and then test to see if it has jelled. If it has, bring it back to the boil and then add in about 1/2 a bunch of cilantro immediately after you've taken it off the heat. Let it cool to room temperature and then chill in the fridge overnight.

To serve, simply top each biscuit with a dab of cilantro jelly.

      Hello! I'm fairly new to this site so I don't know if my search was weak. I'm trying to find a way to make Mandarin orange puree at home, but I couldn't find anything even similar in the forum. I am a home cook, but I have been making chocolate bonbons and other confections for over 4 years (intermitantly). It is too expensive for me to purchase this online- not because of the price of the puree, but the cost of shipping makes it prohibative. The recipes I've seen online are all differant and don't seem to be what I need. 
      I would love any help with this! I look forward to hearing and learning from those who have much, much more experience than me. Thanks!

      Hi, has anyone got a nice recipe for mango jelly using tinned mango puree (850g) and agar-agar powder (and possibly mango juice drink)? 
    • By AlaMoi
      made a tapenade using the usual garlic / olives / olive oil / lemon juice recipe - with kalamata olives.
      I have anchovy (tinned and paste) on standby . . . we both like anchovy....
       
      now,,, I like kalamata olives - especially in a salad that involves feta....
      however, DW is underwhelmed and suggests 'it is just too strong'
       
      we don't have a large selection of olives at the market - other than the usual green/black/with without stuffings...
      Castelvetrano
      the store has an olive bar - but the descriptions are strictly marketing BS - not specific olive types.  lots of 'mixtures'
       
      the Castelvetrano press is pretty good - any experiences on toning down from kalamata welcomed.
      other tips.... i.e. 50-50 Kalamata & black/green, etc.
       
      we do Amazon, so we should be able to get any type . . .
