http://adventuresofalondonkiwi.blogspot.co.uk/Lots of ingredient combinations caught my interest, but in the end I decided to pair my chocolate dish with thyme. As soon as I read this, I knew that it would work; I could imagine the flavours in my head and knew exactly what I wanted to make.
Thyme-infused Chocolate Ganache
- 125g good quality dark chocolate (I used 70%)
- 100ml double cream, extra thick if it is availible
- 2-3tsp fresh thyme
Add the cream and thyme to a milk pan, and gently heat, using a really low heat to allow the thyme to infuse its flavour fully. When the cream starts to feel hot to touch, but not boiling, remove from the heat. Strain off the thyme leaves, and pour evenly over the chocolate. Let it sit for a couple of minutes while the chocolate melts, then stir into a smooth, glossy mixture.
