Ingredients

2 tablespoons cold water

1 (.25-ounce) packet gelatin

1 1/2 cups cream

1/2 cup sugar

1 cup sour cream

2 teaspoons rose water

1 drop red food coloring, optional

Directions

  1. Soften the gelatin in the cold water for 5 minutes in a microwave-safe container. After 5 minutes, microwave on high for about 11 seconds. Check to see if the gelatin is fully dissolved. If not, microwave in 2 second bursts, stirring each time, until gelatin is dissolved but not hot. Or, you could warm the gelatin in a saucepan over very low heat just to dissolve. Set aside.
  2. Place the cream and sugar into a food processor using the steel blade. Turn on and process until cream is softly whipped. This should take less than a minute. Alternatively, you could whip the cream with a mixer or whisk.
  3. Add the sour cream, rose water, and the food coloring, if using, to the processor. Turn on and immediately begin to pour the prepared gelatin in a steady stream into the food processor. Blend for 3 seconds, open the processor lid, scrape the sides and process again for a few seconds more.
  4. If you have used a mixer, whip in the sour cream, rose water and food coloring, if using, just to blend. Pour in the gelatin in a steady stream, whisking constantly.
  5. Pour this cream into a glass or allow it to set up and scoop or pipe it. Serve with fresh strawberries or raspberries.

Cook’s Note

This rose cream is an element of our Rose City Waffle. We serve it on a fresh Oregon Hood strawberry-topped waffle with a sauce made from local rhubarb. It makes a lovely dessert piped or spooned into a martini glass with fresh strawberries or raspberries placed on top.
