Noyaux, marzipan, amaretto, kirschwasser, cherry jam – there are a lot of recipes that are made with apricot kernels, peach kernels or cherry pits!
Just recently I found out that apricot kernels, cherry pits, peach kernels and peach leaves can be used as natural bitter almond flavoring. ‘Families should always save their peach-kernels, as they can be used in cakes, puddings and custards.’ (Seventy-five Receipts for Pastry, Cakes and Sweetmeats, 1836, p. 56) And even if the kernels contain amygdalin, which turns into cyanide in the body, it’s safe to consume food prepared with kernels if it’s cooked or baked before eating (more about it here).
This naturally blue lemon ice cream is naturally colored with butterfly pea tea! And even if it’s vegan, the ice cream is so creamy because it’s made with whipped aquafaba!
I’m still intrigued by the dark ink blue of butterfly pea tea! It’s so easy to dye food naturally blue with butterfly pea flowers – easier than making homemade natural blue food coloring with red cabbage – and it has no taste whatsoever! That’s great because it doesn’t overpower other flavors. The ice cream is flavored with lemon zest – no lemon juice – because natural food coloring is ph-sensitive.
