What a surprise!

RustyApril 5, 2013

The very generous Teresa-mn is at it again!

Found a package waiting for me
When I got home Wednesday evening.
And look what it contained!

Isn't it great? ? ?
Along with two (yes, TWO)
good sized zip lock bags of wild rice.
I just love that stuff!

And I love LOVE this cute little pan!
Just the right size for me.

Now, which recipe shall I try first? ? ? ?
Decisions, decisions!

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! Teresa !
You are the best!


(Edited to change day of arrival,
My week has been a bit hectic.)

Surprise to you, but not to me.

Teresa is well known for her kindness and generosity.


BTW, looking at that cute pan, I wonder if I can use mine to make spherical ice cubes (balls)

That is a great looking pan. Teresa was very good to you.

I'm eager to see what you make with it. Don't make us wait too long. :-)

There was all that talk about aebleskivers last weekend....... it caused me to make an unplanned trip to the Nordic Ware Outlet store..... and I just could not help myself!

Jimster and I are waiting for you to post your first batch Rusty. I am tempted to make some tonite for dinner.

We will be waiting!

I went to my niece Kristina's house tonite. She lives 20 minutes away and I offered to watch my two great nephews while she ran some errands.

I brought the mini skiver pan and whipped up a batch. I used a simple recipe - the one I use when I make a Dutch baby. They turn out hollow and are perfect for filling. And what do you suppose a 5 and a 7 year old wanted piped into their skivers? Good thing I thought ahead and stopped for a can of whipped cream. No pictures - they were eating them faster than I could squirt whipped cream into them. :-)

LOL dcarch!
Teresa's kindness & generosity wasn't the surprise.
The pan and generous amount of wild rice was!

And yes, I can see how you could make 'ice balls' with it.
And no, I'm not going to try it.

Now I must confess.
I have never made or even eaten an Aebleskiver before.
In fact, I'd never even heard of them
before reading about them on this forum.
They sound intriguing and delicious.
So I am really anxious to make some!

I've read all the recipes I can find,
I've watched all the videos Dcarch linked to.
And hopefully, later this week I will get brave!

I do want them to be hollow, not cake like.
I've read how to fill them as they cook,
But Teresa's 'trick' of piping the filling in sounds good, too.
I can just see those two little boys' happy faces
As they devoured those 'skivers'.

Most of you know, I have never done food pictures.
But Teresa, and Jimster, I promise,
I will (try) to post some if (and that is a great BIG if)
They come out anywhere near right!

Thanks again, Teresa!

So you had never even heard of aebleskivers until reading about them here. Isn't this forum great!

And now you are equipped to become a master aebleskiveler - not sure that is even a word. :-)

We don't care if the pictures are good. No one starts out being the perfect photographer. BTW the picture of the pan looks great!

Round ice balls are very desirable for bars.

If you have way to make crystal clear ice balls, you will be rich.
