Quote
Lactose is the main carbohydrate or sugar found in milk, and in varying
quantities in dairy products made from milk including yoghurt, ice cream,
soft cheeses and butter

Indeed it does! I'm sure V's familiar with Fleischmann's lactose-free spreads



Trans-fat free - Fleischmann's are healthier than canola-based margarines
and all would make a suitable butter substitute in the cheesecake crust :wink:

A commercial, great.  :wink:


I bought some Tofutti better than cream cheese today....actaully yesterday now.  Tofutti better than cream cheese has a tofu aftertaste. I can still work with it.  

I also bought some pomegranate juice concentrate.  The concentrate is not what I thought though because it is made from sour pomegranates.  So I'll go buy either what I want in concentrated form or strictly absolutely pure pomegranate juice in a bottle and reduce it.  If all else fails I'll make fresh pomegranate juice and reduce that.....but I dread having to do that.

I'm working on a recipe with bananas in it.  Maybe topped with chocolate.  Dark rum might be in the recipe as well.

I couldn't help but buy Tofutti sour cream.  

After eating some of the above ingredients, trying to see how the flavors are going to mix, I became extremely drowsy/sleepy. For that reason I slept part of the day.  Tofutti products makes me sleepy for some reason, I guess.

Fill the crust with the custard. Sprinkle with Pomegranate seeds as you pour
taking care to distribute them evenly thoughout the cheese cake filling. Chill
until firm.*

[Recipe for the Grenadine Gelatin/Pink Grapefruit layer yet to be finalized]


*Prepare the Pink Grapefruit immediately as per the method here so it can
be added atop the custard before it completely sets. This will prevent your
Grenadine glaze displacing any of the segments when you pour it on later!

With a chef's knife peel and completely remove the pith from:
1 Pink Grapefruit
Using a pairing knife, carefully cut all of the segments from the membrane
and remove any veins from the back of the segments. Cut segments in ½
and dry between 2 sheets of paper towel. Place atop the custard in 3 con
-centric rings. Return cheese cake to the refrigerator so it completely sets.

In a 1 Pint Pyrex jug dissolve:
1/8 cup caster sugar
3 teaspoons powdered gelatin

in ½ cup of boiling water, add each ingredient seperately, dissolving sugar
completely before adding the gelatin. Allow the liquid to cool before adding
1½ tablespoons Grenadine
2 teaspoons Pink Grapefruit Juice

Add boiling water to a 2 cup total :P

Allow the jelly to completely cool prior to adding it atop the cheese cake; if
the jelly is at room temperature [20°C] it could still be too warm to add as
it will dissapear into the crust :oops: too cool and it won't bind to the cheese-
cake properly. Once completed - return it to the refrigerator for 4 hours 8)



Remove from the springform pan and serve with finely grated chocolate :D

In a food processor blend:
227g graham crackers
½ teaspoon allspice
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Adjust the spice in the biscuit mix to a lighter blend of mixed spice with the
following; cinnamon, coriander, ginger, cassia, pimento, cloves, nutmeg :wink:

Instead of the allspice & cinnamon - use just the mixed spice as described;
½ teaspoon mixed spice

This will create a much lighter base to complement the richer cheese cake!

OMG! This is the best Cheese cake I have ever tasted!



Quote from: "Vanessa Carlton"
“I'm obsessed with eating them. It’s a big project, so it takes up a
lot of time. They’re very messy, but there’s something about the
seeds and the crunch. The sweet bitterness gets me every time.”
