Sweet of Grain Recipe

40

This delicious treat is perfect for using as a filling for dessert such as profiterols or use to to top a cake. The sweetness of the jam is great for smearing on a piece of homemade wholegrain toast or stir it into a bowl of plain yogurt for the perfect breakfast. This is great to keep in the refrigerator for last minute dessert prep, or make a large batch and package it beautifully for a heartfelt gift around the holidays.

Ingredients

  • 1 kilogram wheat (Alentejo)
  • 750 grams sugar
  • 1 stick cinnamon
  • 1 lemon

Directions

  1. Bake the grain during and skin it (which takes some work but the result is much, much better!)
  2. Blend the grain to puree.
  3. Melt the sugar in a pan with just a little bit of water and add the puree, cinnamon stick and lemon zest. Stir well until the puree is incorporated in the sugar syrup and bring to a boil, until the mixture is not too liquid or too thick. Remove the cinnamon stick.
  4. I placed the still-warm candy in sterilized jars, covered them, and turned them upside down to create a vacuum.
