What is blanching?

This is a popular and widely used way of preparing food. If we come across the concept of blanching somewhere, it is good to know that it involves a short cooking in boiling water that is quite salty and a subsequent rapid cooling in ice water.

It works by submerging the individual crops in boiling water, causing them to soften but retain their natural crunch.

At the same time, however, unwanted tiny air bubbles are removed, so that the vegetables then have a much richer and more expressive color. Blanching inhibits the activity of enzymes that have a negative effect on the shelf life of individual foods.

The salt in the boiling water will flavor the vegetables, while higher amounts prevent the vegetables from transferring their color and flavor to the water. Rapid cooling immediately deactivates the heat treatment. The color will be preserved and the vegetables will no longer soften.

How to do it?

The correct execution of this heat treatment depends on speed and sufficient salt content. It is best to boil up to 5 liters of water with a salt concentration of about 3%.

We use 30 g of salt for 1 liter of water. Right next to it, prepare an ice bath, while the ratio of ice and water must be 1:1. This is the only way to cool vegetables removed from boiling water quickly enough.

What is crème fraîche?

Just as sour cream is popular with us, the French have crème fraîche. Although they are two different products, their uses are similar. This French specialty is a well-known dairy product on a global scale.

It originates from France and is made from fresh cream. It’s often hard to find, but when you do, it’s worth it. Of course, we have to expect a slightly higher price than ordinary sour cream.

Correctly, this product must contain a minimum of 30% fat in dry matter and a maximum of 15% lactose. There are two types of crème fraîche. The first type is liquid, so-called liquide. The latter is thinner and its consistency is similar to whipping cream.

A French special product made from fresh cream as an alternative to sour cream.

On the contrary, épaisse is thick and is a cream matured by means of bacteria and has a similar density to sour cream. If we cannot find the original product, we can replace it in the recipe with whipping cream or sour cream.

Stabilizers and preservatives must not be used for production. This French dairy product is preserved using pasteurization, when lactic bacteria are added to the cream. The cream begins to ripen, after one day it turns sour and its structure immediately begins to change.
