Add Brazilian flavour and honey to your World Cup BBQ

Jo Alves-Attree is a friend of Ogilvy’s and, as a Brazilian who is enjoying the World Cup,Brazilian-Plateau-Jar would like to share a traditional Brazilian marinade which is great with pork. Jo is from Pernambuco, a state in Brazil situated in the North East of the country. Recife is the capital and Caruaru the most developed city after Recife. Pernambuco is known for it’s sugar cane, beautiful sandy beaches and palm trees. Brazilian’s use honey a lot in their cooking and Ogilvy’s Brazilian Plateau is perfect for marinades and drizzling.

For a BBQ in Brazil, lunch, dinner, weekday or weekend Jo suggests you try this delicious marinade for pork ribs, steaks or chops.

Serves 2 people

One glass of white wine

One tablespoon of Dijon mustard

Two tablespoons of Brazilian Plateau honey

Salt and pepper

Mix the ingredients for the marinade and add the pork, leave for 4 hours for the flavours to infuse. Put the meat in the oven or on the BBQ and cook until it is soft and golden, keep brushing the meat with the marinade and juice. If necessary add more honey, it is delicious!!

For afters, grilled cheese of your choice drizzled with Brazilian Plateau honey.

Enjoy!!

 

 

 

Honey with benefits, Ogilvy’s Balkan Black Locust low GI honey, the natural sweetener

100% pure cold pressed artisan honey found in the South East regions of Serbia. This mono-floral honey is produced by bees feeding exclusively on the draping white flowers of the indigenous black locust tree to produce a lovely pale, shiny honey with a delicate light flavour, which is mild in strength.

Balkan Black Locust

Balkan Black Locust honey scores 32 on the glycemic index, this low GI rating can contribute to more stable blood sugar levels as the fructose is turned into glucose in the liver to fuel the body, this in turn allows the body to burn more fat and therefore can contribute to weight loss as part of your diet.

 

This pure natural honey also contains small amounts of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and amino acids making it more nutritious than refined sugar whilst also helping to boost immunity. This makes Balkan Black Locust the perfect sugar substitute and an ideal natural sweetener for tea and coffee.

 

Balkan Black Locust honey with its low GI score can also help with physical activity. One tablespoon of honey before exercise can help to prevent muscle fatigue. The glucose produced in the liver can help to provide immediate energy whilst the fructose helps to maintain energy because it is absorbed more slowly. After exercise a tablespoon of honey in green or black tea can benefit energy levels, help to burn fat and therefore contribute to weight loss.

 

To sum up the purity of Balkan Black Locust honey can help to contribute to a healthy lifestyle, tastes delicious and is good for you!

Ogilvy’s honey, just right for delicious Easter recipes

Easter is the perfect time to use honey in recipes and if you are entertaining over the Easter weekend your guests will love Honey glazed carrots (delicious with lamb) followed by Apple New-Zealand-Rewarewa-Jarand Honey tart.

Honey Glazed Carrots

Serves 4

8 medium carrots

2 generous knobs of butter

4 tablespoons of New Zealand Rewarewa honey

Method

Place the carrots in a saucepan with enough cold water to cover, bring to the boil and cook until they still have a soft crunch.

Drain but retain a small amount of the water.

Add the butter and the Rewarewa honey to the cooked carrots and on a medium heat caramelise the carrots until they are glazed making sure not to burn the honey.

If the glaze starts to get too thick add a few teaspoons of the carrot water.

 

Apple and Honey Tart

Brazilian-Plateau-JarServes 4

Pastry

110g/4oz Plain Flour

Pinch of Salt

55g/2oz Butter

10ml/2 teaspoons Caster Sugar

1 egg Yolk

Very cold water

Filling

120ml/8 tablespoons Brazilian Plateau honey

Grated Rind of ½ Lemon and 10ml/2 teaspoons of the juice

Approx 4 Apples Cox or Granny Smith are ideal, peeled, cored and quartered

28g/1oz Fresh Ginger finely chopped or grated

60ml/4 tablespoons Fresh Breadcrumbs

Method

Set the Oven to 190 c/375 F/ Gas mark 5.

Sift the flour with salt, rub in the butter until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs, add the sugar.

Mix the egg yolk with 30ml/2 tablespoons water, add to the mixture.

Mix to a firm dough, first with a knife and then by hand. It may be necessary to add water, but pastry should not be to wet.

Leave to rest in the fridge.

Roll the pastry out to 5mm/1/4 inch thick and line a pie plate or flan ring with it. Prick the bottom with a fork – do not prick all way through the pastry.

Place baking paper onto the pastry, add baking beans, leave in the freezer for 10 minutes. Blind bake for 10 minutes.

Heat the honey gently with lemon juice and rind to make it runny, add ginger and slices of apple. When the apple is soft, carefully take out and evenly decorate in the flan tin.

Sprinkle the breadcrumbs into the honey mixture until they are soaked and well mixed and layer on top of the apple. If your breadcrumb mixture is too dry, melt some more honey and drizzle on top.

Bake for about 30 minutes until the filling is set and the edges of the pastry are brown. The filling should be a little on the soft side and nicely brown if the tart is to be eaten cold.

Enjoy! Happy Easter from Ogilvy’s.
