Today, I am the mad scientist, in my kitchen…
First, I made chocolate mousse by mixing and using up the rest of my cooking chocolate and some chocolate eggs we got last year. It was a while ago since I made this, and the first time I ever mixed chocolates. I think my mixing bowl was a bit too warm when I put all the ingredients together. The end result turned out a bit runny than usual. Well, we shall see if it stiffens up after cooling down in the fridge for a few hours. Fingers crossed.
Then, I continued on to make ginger beer with some previously frozen ginger skins and some expired Champagne yeast. I won’t know whether the yeast are still good until I see bubbles from the brewing container. Again, fingers crossed.
Regardless of the results, I have taken actions on my simple intention of ridding the pantry of old chocolates and expired yeast.
