White Pumpkin and Almond Murabba


Description

White Pumpkin and Almond Murabba:

Ingredients: Indian long gourd, sugar, almonds, cinnamon, lemon juice, cardamom, vanilla, proprietary spice mix, sea salt

The gourd’s importance as a confection dates back thousands of years and continues today from the Southern Mediterranean to the Indian subcontinent. Layered with almonds, scented with cardamom, cinnamon and vanilla, this “murabba” or preserve calls Central Asia and Persia home.

It is enriched with some of the world’s costliest spices, evoking festivity and is traditionally served during weddings. The murabba’s oral notes pair with all game but are equally delicious with a humble slice of toast slathered with salted butter.

For dessert to impress, drizzle warmed compote over vanilla ice cream and add a cardamom infused, white wine-poached pear or roasted figs.

Pairings:

  • soft cheese
  • toasted breads
  • filling for crêpes
  • poultry and game
  • ice cream
  • yogurt or labneh
  • roasted figs
  • dessert topping
