Gouryevskaya Kasha recipe You will need: 1 cup semolina; 2 1/2 cup milk; 2 Tb butter; 2 Tb sugar; 2 cups dense cream; 2/3 cup nuts; 2 cups canned fruits; 1/2 cup sugar; 1/2 lemon; 1 ts vanilla; Salt to taste.
Preparation: Pour the cream into not very deep pan. Put cream into the hot oven. As soon as there is a pink skin on the cream, take it carefully away on the plate. Be careful not to tear. Do it until you have 6-7 skins. Boil a viscous kasha with milk. Add butter, 2 Tb sugar, vanilla, salt and mix well. Put kasha into the oven to warm up for 30 minutes. Then add the rest of baked cream to kasha. Nuts caramelizing: nuts must be caramelized otherwise kasha will be grey and not have a very good taste. Nuts must be tempered at first. Then put in a very hot water for 10 minutes. After that take the skins off the nuts, dry and chop them. Put 1/2 cup sugar in the pan on the heat, add lemon juice, wait until red colour and add nuts. As soon as nuts are caramelized, take them out and let cool down. Grease a baking form with butter. Put a little kasha as first layer, then a skin and nuts, chopped canned fruits. Then repeat it until all the skins are used. The last layer is made of kasha. Decorate with sugar, fruits and nuts and put the form into the hot oven for 10-20 minutes. Gouryevskaya Kasha is served with apricot puree or any fruit juice.
