Buying someone a good present can be very tricky.You might know the person well, question his or her family and still buy something they don’t quite like,flowers they are allergic too, scarf in a colour they don’t wear or a book they have already read.Of course boys are so much easier!A bottle of quality booze will make every man happy!I don’t think this struggle to get someone a right pressie apply to mums though….My mum posted me an early birthday gift the other day.A cookbook.Of course 🙂 But she had no idea I couldn’t wait to get my hands on THAT particular book since the day it came out.She bought it as she thought I would probably like it!PROBABLY!?She also sent me a bottle of perfumes that she thought would be right for me,not knowing it is one of my favourite scents 🙂 How does she do it!?
Of course my mum wouldn’t be herself if she only posted me a book and a bottle of perfumes….so she also decided to sent 2 massive jars of honey, 10 jars of home made jams, 8 jars of home made pickled sour gherkins,4 jars of her own tomato puree and 2 jars of local forest blueberries .The parcel weighing 30 kilos travelled 1,639.7 km within 6 days, all the way from Poland to make one little daughter happy on the other side of Europe 🙂 Mums are the best!It doesn’t matter if you see each other every day, or last time you met was a year ago, it doesn’t matter if you are 5 years old kid or 29 years old independent woman, MUMS always know how to make their children happy 🙂 When I said to her that she shouldn’t have troubled herself she answered that it ”makes her happy too that she can sent us a taste of family home” 🙂
Today’s recipe was strongly inspired by one of the recipes from my new book –”O jabłkach”(About Apples) by Eliza Mórawska,although there is no apples in it.It’s a very fluffy omelette with honeyed pears.As I used raw thyme honey I thought I’ll garnish the dish with some fresh thyme which I always have on my kitchen’s windowsill.Feel free to use any raw honey for this recipe or if you not as keen on it as I am,add your favourite sweetener.
pinch of salt
2 pears,sliced(without nests and seeds)
1-2 tablespoons raw honey
3 tablespoons of grated cheese(small grate)
1 tablespoon butter
1.Heat an oven to 180 C/365F.
2.Place sliced pears in a pan with honey and heat until soft(it will only take a couple of minutes).
3.Place egg whites in a bowl and whip until soft peaks, mix in the yolks, one by one, mixing with a spoon,add grated cheese salt.
4.Grease generously a 9” iron pan with butter,pour the egg mixture into it and put pear slices on the top.
