Passport & Plate - Grandma’s Chocolate Cream

Macedonia | Thursday, 5 March 2015 | 2 photos


Ingredients:
2 teaspoons of cocoa powder
2 teaspoons of sugar
1 teaspoon sunflower oil
couple of fresh or dried geranium leaves

How to prepare this recipe:
Grind up the sugar and geranium together in a morter so you get a geranium smelling sugar, then add the cocoa powder and sunflower oil and mix it all together. Spread on bread and enjoy the taste. Trust me, it’s much better than any other commercial chocolate spread, healthier too (no matter how difficult this is to believe).

The story behind this recipe
When I was a child I spent all my summers at my grandmother’s house in the country side. We were poor then and had a simple life, but I grew up in a yard filled with fresh fruits and vegetables, so I guess we had a lot more than other people. Back then whenever we wanted something sweet, my grandma made us her own version of chocolate cream. To this day I still eat this, it takes me back to my childhood and reminds me how lucky I was growing up amongst all those natural free products the earth gave us. And I strongly believe you should always find a way to awaken the child within once in awhile.
It’s a very personal memory, but I gladly share it with the world, like my great grandmother did with my grandma, and my grandma with my mum and all her grandchildren.
