buttermilk pudding // strawberry coulis

What do we want? SPRINGTIME! When do we want it? NOW! What are we going to do since there isn't shit we can do about it, and it's still 25 degrees outside, the sky is all gray, and were getting grouchier by the minute. Ummmmm, well, we could all make a really awesome dessert that reminds us of sunshine, green grass, and produce that doesn't have a price tags on it.

We suggest this one.

buttermilk pudding

1 cup heavy cream
1 cup buttermilk
1 tsp gelatin
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup sugar

 Add gelatin over 1/4 cup of cream in a small bowl and let soften, about 1 minute. Add remaining 3/4 cup cream, vanilla and sugar and bring just to a boil over medium heat, stir until sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat. Add gelatin mixture to hot milk mixture, stirring until dissolved. Quickly cool mixture in freezer or ice bath, stirring occasionally. Let mixture cool,  but not become thick, about 5-10 minutes.
Stir in buttermilk, strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a large bowl , discard solids. Pour into serving cups and chill until set. That is, if you can wait that long.Top with coulis and additional strawberries.
