Elise at Simply Recipes is hosting this months Is My Blog Burning. The theme is gelatin. I have to admit, I’m not a big gelatin fan, but I thought I should give a nod to my midwestern roots and try something. I made Avocado Mousse.
I was hoping to find a recipe for avocado panna cotta, but no luck. If you have one, let me know. This was pretty good. The orange flavors cover up much of the avocado and if I were to make this again, I think I would cut down on the orange quite a bit.
I had a fair bit of difficulty getting it out of the mold. I followed the instructions and rested the mold in a hot water bath for a few seconds, but then the mousse just melted and lost any shape it had received from the mold. (Hence the use of the pretty strawberries). Otherwise, this was quite an easy recipe.
I don’t know that I would make this again. It was tasty, but mainly I (and my roommates) aren’t that into to jello-mold-types-of-things. . .
A very interesting topic for the IMBB though! All of the other excellent submissions can be found here on Elise’s site.
