Romanian Sea Buckthorn Fruit Preserving

Sea Buckthorn Macerated in Honey

Steps

  1. clean the fruit
  2. press with a wooden fork or spatula until it turns into a chunky paste
  3. fill a 400 gr jar 1/3rd of the way with the paste
  4. pour honey of your choice (I like acacia)
  5. mix it well, put on the lid and keep it refrigerated
    • take one teaspoon daily on an empty stomach

Sea Buckthorn Syrup

Steps

  1. juice 1 kg of fruit
    • the recipe recommends putting the fruit in gauze and crushing it with a pestle and mortar… yes, it’s labour intensive!
  2. you should obtain about 0.5 L of juice
  3. mix the juice with 0.5 kg of honey in a jar, cover, and place in the fridge for 5 to 7 days
  4. shake the jar or mix the syrup with a wooden spoon about twice a day
    • after the 5-7 days, take one spoon daily on an empty stomach or 2 spoons in a glass of water
    • shake jar before consuming

NOTES:

Do not use metal while processing Sea Buckthorn as it may cause the fruit to oxidise and ferment.
Use honey from a trusted source.

Brownies and Raspberry-Sea Buckthorn Mousse

Ingredients

Brownies
400 g Chocolate buttons 64%
160 ml Coconut oil
350 g Sugar
4 Eggs
90 g Amaranth starch
2 ml Salt

Mousse
750 g Raspberry (thawed if frozen)
375 g Sea buckthorn (thawed if frozen)
3 Avocado
175 ml Lemon juice
325 g Melted coconut oil
250 g Clover honey
6 ml Xanthane

Directions

Brownies

  • Melt the chocolate and coconut oil in a bain-marie (double boiler).
  • Whisk the sugar and the eggs. Add chocolate and coconut oil gradually while whisking. Add the amaranth starch and salt.
  • Pour in two “demi gastronome pans” (You could use a cookie sheet, or cake pan.  From a Google search that a 12×10” or 9×13” pan would be suitable) at  350°C for 15 to 20 minutes. (You want the batter to spread to about ½” thickness.)

Mousse

  • Reduce raspberries and sea buckthorn berries into purée.
  • Strain purée (there should be 900g left).
  • Make avocado purée with lemon juice, honey and xanthan.
  • Mix with the purée of raspberry and sea buckthorn.
  • Stir in the coconut oil.

The mousse was served in a very small glass, similar to a shot glass.  It looked like a very small serving, along with the very small brownie, but in fact it was very filling and delicious.

This recipe was submitted by Mary W.

“The mousse is served at the Eastman Spa, in Eastman, Quebec.  It’s delicious, as is the brownie that is served with it.  The recipe was shared with me by the chef, so the cooking instructions are somewhat vague.  Enjoy!”

Sea Buckthorn Smoothie

Check out Andrew making one of his famous sea buckthorn smoothies!  He varies the ingredients depending upon what he has on hand or what’s in season.

Today’s smoothie ingredients are:  sea buckthorn berries, cantaloupe, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, orange juice and yogurt.

Science has revealed sea buckthorn’s incredible nutritional profile and it is full of the following nutrients and vitamins:

  • essential fatty acids – omega 3, 6, 9 and the rare omega 7
  • vitamin C – one berry (the size of a blueberry) has as much vitamin C as one orange
  • vitamin E – the second highest natural source in the plant world
  • beta carotene
  • antioxidants – 18 amino acids, corticoids, tocopherols, flavenoids
  • over 190 phytonutrients

A sea buckthorn smoothie is a healthy way to start your day.  Since many store bought smoothies often have added sugars you are better off making your own.  There are countless combinations of fruit, vegetables and other nutritious ingredients that you can use to make your own healthy smoothie!

Feel free to comment and let us know what you put in your smoothie!
