A sultry, dense and creamy custard delicately infused with fresh plums.
INW Smoked plum does a wonderful job in creating a realistic, ripe plum with well balanced sweet and tart notes.
The tartness offsets the sweetness perfectly and is pimped up with just a smidgen of smokiness to take this boring old plum to (to coin a phrase) infinity and beyond!
The beautifully thick, almost viscose, mouthfeel present in the plum lends itself perfectly to a thick custard base.
Warning, do not stray above the 0.5%... This stuff is more potent than Kryptonite and should not be taken lightly... I have taken it to 1.5% as a single flavour but anything over that mutes the delicate plum and turns this stuff putrid.
The INW Sesame adds a little intrigue and is a perfect partner for any stone fruit. Feel free to omit the sesame it if you do not have it - BUT, I highly reccommmend it.
I can write an dissertation on the INW Creme Brulee and Custard combo but I will restrain myself. Is is my go-to combo and it just works beautifully to create a stunning thick and luscious custard base with that delicious Brulee finish...
Give this at least 5 days to come together...
FA Custard is FA Custard Premium (which is STILL not listed)
A deep, rich fig custard as part of the DMC December Fig Challenge.
I set out to create a brulee to pay homage to a very underrated fruit = the humble Fig.
FA Fresh fig is (undoubtedly) the best FRESH fig flavor around - a freshly picked, ripe, fresh fig. This, slightly sweet, figgy goodness is given a little boost with the help of Liquid Amber. This just accents the fig and elevates its natural deliciousness to make you want more...
INW Sesame adds that little something something which makes this truly special. The Sesame is lightly sweet and brings a earthy and nutty element to the mix which perfectly compliments the fig. Sesame is a departure form the traditional nut variants - a bit more sophisticated and refined nut accent.
**FA Custard is FA Custard Premium
INW Creme Brulee and FA Custard Premium is the foundation here and combines beautifully to create a thick, dense custard finished with a decadent layer of caramized sugar. I have chosen FA Custard Premium as the new "cap killer" contender, and rightfully so! This stuff is amazing and I'm afraid I do not have enough descriptive words other than that it is a f&ing awesome custard!!!
Give this at least a week to steep, 2 weeks better...
