Happy Thanksgiving Canada!

This weekend, we have been celebrating Thanksgiving as in  Canada. Usually, in Canada I made our Thanksgiving dinner with the vegetables that I had collected from our garden. This year, I made the dessert with our peaches......

 Peach Mousse

200 grams of peaches in syrup
200 grams whipping cream
6 grams of gelatin sheets (3 sheets)
Sugar if needed (I didn't use sugar) 
Peaches in syrup for the sauce

Place the gelatin sheets in cold water. Dissolve them in a pan with minimum water.
Whip the cream medium hard. Blend the peaches in a blender, and mix it with the whipping cream. Add the dissolved gelatin, and place them in mold in the fridge for 3 hours minimum.

In a blender, place some peaches with syrup. Blend them until you have a soup consistency. 

In a dessert plate, place some of this peach soup, and the mousse in the center. ENJOY!

Pumpkin and Yam soup

1/2 butternut pumpkin
3 yam
100 grams of fennel for salad (I freeze part of the fennel stems for soups)
2 tablespoons of vegetable concentrate
1 teaspoon of turmeric
1 cup of water
1 cup of milk
pumpkin seeds and chives to decorate

When I make bread, I place in the oven pumpkin and yam. I left them in the oven for 24 hours. I peel and freeze them in portions.

In a pot place the water and milk. Add the pumpkin, yam, fennel, vegetable concentrate, salt, pepper and turmeric. Let it simmer for 30 minutes. Let it cool, and blend it in a mixer. Heat it again, and correct it for salt. Serve it warm with toppings of your choice. ENJOY!


  1. I love pumpkin soups and going to have some later too. The peach mousse looks so inviting too.

  2. We were just the two of us this year, so we didn't make a big meal. Glad to hear that you have fond memories of your time here.
