Cooking On The Ranch

Colorado Creme #Sundaysupper

Colorado Creme. Is it a pudding? Is it a mousse? A custard? It’s actually better, it’s a French-style custard that’s cooked stove top and then chilled into a gourmet delight.

Smooth, rich, creamy, classy. I’ve had this recipe bookmarked in my Creme de Colorado Junior League Cookbook for years. I have no idea why it took me so long to give it a try. It’s easy and it’s delightful. A perfect way to showcase our first Spring berries.

This week’s #SundaySupper project is all about welcoming Spring. Melting snow, blooming flowers, budding trees and greening grass means spring is here. Everything is coming to life! There is nothing so wonderful as grilling on the deck, enjoying a drink on the patio and soaking in all the new life that surrounds one! We’re bringing some of that life to the Sunday Supper table this week and sharing recipes to welcome Spring 2016.

If you’re not familiar, the #SundaySupper Movement was started by Isabel over at Family Foodie as a project for “bringing back Sunday supper around the family table.” Who can argue with that??? Our host for this event is Renee from Renee’s Kitchen Adventures Thank you, Renee!

Heavy whipping cream is heated stove top with sugar and unflavored gelatin. Simply stir in some vanilla and sour cream, then pour into dessert cups to chill. Top with fresh berries and WOW. A wonderful texture and perfect cream flavor.
