re going through really hot and humid days here which made me remember a dessert mom used Lemon Jelly (Limonlu Pelte)

We’re going through really hot and humid days here which made me remember a dessert mom used to make. When I came back home from a hot day on the beach, she would serve me a cold slice of this lemon jelly which was soooo refreshing after hours of burning with salt under the sun.

I called her to get the recipe. I had missed it a lot; it was already gone before I thought of taking a picture.

You can try this with lime, too. And if you cannot find petit beurres/tea biscuits, you can use lady fingers or a different kind of biscuits.

1 pack of tea biscuits, petit beurre (Le petit beurre is a thin, small, rectangle biscuit first made in France by the founder of LU company. They’re great with tea: you have to dip it very fast, though! You can find them in the international food sections of big stores or in international markets)
2 cups of water
2 cups of milk
4 tsp corn starch
2 cups of sugar
1 tsp vanilla
juice of 2 lemons
zest of 1 lemon
finely shredded coconut

-Put water, milk, and starch in a pot and mix well.
-Add sugar, vanilla, lemon juice and zest.
-Stir on medium until the mixture thickens.
-Wet the bottom of a square or a rectangle dish with the boiling hot jelly.
-Place a layer of biscuits on top in an order. Cover biscuits with lemon jelly and the place another layer of biscuits.
-Repeat this layering until you run out of biscuits and jelly.
-Refrigerate for couple of hours, overnight if possible. The colder the better!
-Cut the frozen jelly in squares, rectangles, or triangles.
-Sprinkle a generous amount of shredded coconut on top before you
serve.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
