Honeyed sour milk jelly with bee pollen

The first leg of this summer’s trip to Finland took me to Riga. Only to the airport, but still. Between changing planes, I had the chance to browse the tax-free shops and the interesting culinary treats Latvia has to offer. Bee pollen, for instance. Finally in Finland, I combined it with a jelly featuring one of my favorite Finnish beverages – piimä.

Whip 200 ml sour milk (piimä) with 150 ml crème fraîche until fluffy. Taste with 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1 tbsp honey and the juice of half a lemon. Mix with 4 bloomed gelatine leaves melted in 2 tbsp boiling water. Transfer to portion molds and allow to set in the fridge.

Carefully remove the jelly from the portion molds and serve with bee pollen, fresh bilberries and wild strawberry as well as wild strawberry leaves and daisy blossom.
