Word of the day

TEMPERING (Chocolate)

The process of melting, cooling and re-warming chocolate so that it sets at room temperature with shine, and has a good “snap” when you bite it.  Without this process, chocolate would set-up with a dull finish, have visible streaks and feel soft when you bite into it.  This process is important when making truffles, chocolate candy and bark.

Salted Pecan and Dried Cherry Dark Chocolate Bark

Melt the butter in a medium sauté pan over medium heat and add the pecans and sea salt. Stir until the pecans have toasted, about 6 minutes, then remove from the heat to cool before roughly chopping them. Have a parchment-lined baking tray ready. To temper the chocolate, melt 7 oz (210 g) of it in a metal bowl placed over a saucepan filled with an inch (2.5 cm) of barely simmering water, stirring until it has melted and reaches 113 to 122°F (45 to 50°C). If it gets warmer than this, let it cool to below 113°F (45°C) and re-warm. Remove the bowl from the heat and stir in the remaining 3 oz (90 g) of chocolate to melt it, continuing to stir until the chocolate reaches 82°F (28°C). Return the bowl to the water bath and stir until the ch...
