Sauerbraten

Sauerbraten needs to brine for a few days to prepare before cooking. Keep in mind that if you prefer more your gravy to be sourer, reduce the water/wine and increase the vinegar or add lemon juice.

Scottish Cranachan Dessert

This is a great dessert but you need to start it the day before you plan on serving it because the oats need to soak overnight in the Scotch.  This is the traditional version where you soak the oats in Scotch such as Glenfiddich, which is what I used.

Instructions
Overnight Oats
  1. The night before you want to make the dessert, toast 1/3 cup (2 oz) of the oats in a cast iron or very heavy pan until very lightly browned- this won’t take long, so keep a close eye, as you don’t want burnt oats. Next, put these oats in a bowl and cover with 1/3 cup (3 oz) of whiskey. Cover and let stand overnight to soak.
Oats and Berries
  1. When you are ready to make the Cranachan, toast the second batch (1/4 cup) of oats, exactly the same as you did the first ones. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  2. Now, choose a few choice raspberries to decorate the tops and set them aside.
  3. Crush the rest of the raspberries in a bowl, with a spatula or fork, (just a bit, we’re not making jam) 🙂
  4. This is the part that is different: sprinkle the raspberries with 2 teaspoons of sugar, 1 tablespoon of honey and 1 tablespoon of whisky. Mix well and set aside.
  5. Whip the cream until it starts to thicken, then add the other 2 tablespoons of honey, and 2 tablespoons of the whiskey. Continue to whip until stiff peaks form. Next, gently fold in the whiskey-soaked oats.
Assembly
  1. At this point, we are ready to assemble the dessert. I would recommend doing this relatively close to serving time as the dessert will taste better fresh (if possible, don’t make it in the morning to serve for dinner).

Filling
  1. In a large sauté pan brown meat over medium to high heat, breaking the meat up with a wooden spoon as it cooks. Season with 1/2 tsp salt and pepper to taste. I drained the liquid off and used a fork to break it up more.

  7. Remove from oven and let it cool 5-10 minutes before serving.
