Iata-ne si in prima luna de vara. Dupa o lunga perioada in care ploile si frigul ne-au facut sa nu simtim adevarata frumusete a lunii mai iata ca luna iunie pare ca a venit cu soare si caldura.
Sunt putin dezamagita ca fructele inceputului de vara fie nu s-au copt inca fie sunt stricate de la atata umiditate. Am profitat de fructele pe care le-am gasit pe piata deoarece ciresele bunicii au facut mucegai in pom iar capsunile nu s-au copt :(
Am pregatit o placinta cu rubarba si capsuni absolut delicioasa. Anul trecut am pregatit placinta cu rubarba si banane; acum era momentul si pentru cea cu niste capsuni parfumate.
Here we are in the first month of summer. After a long period in which rain and cold made us not to feel the true beauty of May, the month of June seems to come with sun and heat. I'm a little disappointed that the fruits of the beginning of summer are not ripe yet or are so damaged from moisture and rain. I took advantage of the fruits that I found on the market because the cherry tree from my grandparents have mold and strawberries were not ripe :(
I prepared an absolutely delicious rhubarb and strawberry pie. Last year we prepared rhubarb pie and bananas, now it's the time for one with some scented strawberries.
- 2 oua
-100 g zahar pudra
-200 g margarina sau 200 g unt
-faina cat cuprinde (cca 400-450g)
- 3 tulpini rubarba
-150 g capsuni
-50 g unt
-100 g zahar
Ingredients for dough:
- 2 eggs
-100 g powdered sugar
-200 g margarine or butter
-flour as much as is needed (about 400-450g)
Ingredients for filling:
- 3 stalks rhubarb
-150 g strawberries
-50 g butter
-100 g sugar
Coca obtinuta se inveleste intr-o punga de plastic si se pune la frigider pentru 30-40 de minute.
Mix eggs with soft margarine, powdered sugar and vanilla. Then add the flour until you'll get an elastic dough but not too hard. I needed about 400g of flour. The obtained dough is wrapped in a plastic bag and placed in refrigerator for 30-40 minutes.
Rhubarb will be peeled of the first fibrous layer, washed and cut into small cubes.
Rhubarb cubes are put in a teflon pan with butter and tempered for 4-5 minutes over low heat, stirring gently. Before taking the pan off the heat add the sugar and stir well for 1-2 minutes. It will form a quite thick sauce in which the pieces of rhubarb will remain whole.
The dough is put in a form and arranged as evenly as you can by hand. Do not bother stretching the dough with the rolling pin because it will tear apart. After you have finished arranging the dough prick it with a fork.
Taiati capsunile si puneti-le peste coca. Apoi se pune rubarba impreuna cu sosul format in tigaie. Daca doriti puteti pune la inceput numai capsunile si bagati placinta in cuptor. Dupa 10 minute scoateti placinta si adaugati rubarba si sosul. Eu am incercat ambele variante si nu e prea mare diferenta.
Placinta va fi gata in 30 de minute daca aveti un cuptor clasic, pe gaz, asa cum am eu. Se serveste calda sau rece, simpla sau cu inghetata de vanilie langa.
Slice strawberries and place them over the dough. Then put rhubarb from the pan with sauce. You can put in the beginning only strawberries and put pie in oven. After 10 minutes take it out and add rhubarb and sauce. I tried both variants and there's not much difference.
Pie will be ready in 30 minutes if you have a traditional oven, with gas, as I have. Serve warm or cold, plain or with vanilla ice cream near it.
