Citrus with Chocolate Ganache

Farmer Marty suggests making this for your valentine.  Ganache recipe is also from Joy of Cooking.

  • ¾ c heavy cream
  • 8 oz bittersweet chocolate

(I suggest Ghiardelli’s 60% cocoa chocolate chips.  They’re really the only way to go.)

Heat the cream in a saucepan.  Add the chocolate and stir until it’s almost all melted.  Remove from heat and let set 10 minutes.  Stir until completely smooth.

Peel citrus and separate sections.  Dip half of each section in the chocolate.  Arrange artfully on a plate and serve to your valentine.

See “Broiled Grapefruit” to prepare the grapefruit in the center.
