How we Hygge

Cold, snowy days during this arctic freeze have us craving some hygge at home! Creating moments of pure coziness is the simple, but oh so special Danish way. Here are a few ways we Hygge at home. 

Nothing is more Hygge than wrapping yourself in a cozy wool blanket. It’s like surrendering into a warm hug and shutting out the cold! Our Klippan blankets are made using only the finest wool from new Zealand sheep, and masterfully crafted and woven into heirloom quality pieces. 

Our Dona Chai & Turmeric concentrates have become a Bradshaws customer FAVOURITE. Versatile, nutrient dense flavour FULL – these liquid concentrates can be added to almost anything to health-ify a warm latte or smooth cocktail. 

Cardamom Crust 

     2 cups plain flour
     1/2 cup sugar
     1 stick + 3 tablespoons of butter
     1 tablespoon of ground cardamom
     1 egg

 

Turmeric Milk Filling
     2 1/2 cups whole milk
     1 cup of cream
     1 cup of Dona Turmeric concentrate
     3 eggs
     2 1/2 tablespoons cornflour
     2 tbs flour
     3/4 cup of sugar
     pinch of salt
     2 tsp vanilla extract
     2 tablespoons butter

To decorate: 1/2 cup of roasted, salted pistachios, finely chopped
 

For the pastry:

  1. Cream butter and sugar until light and creamy. Add the egg and beat well.

  2. Add flour, salt and cardamom. Chill for 30 minutes.

  3. Press into a round loose-bottomed tart dish.

  4. Bake blind at 180 for 12-15 minutes, then remove paper and beans and bake for another 5-7 minutes, until light brown.

 

For the filling:

  1. In a small saucepan, heat the turmeric concentrate to a gentle simmer, and cook on low heat until it reduces slightly.

  2. Bring the milk and cream to a gentle simmer, and add the turmeric concentrate.

  3. In another bowl, whisk the eggs, flours, salt and sugar.

  4. Whisk the milk mixture into the egg mixture and return to the stove. Stir continuously over medium heat until thick (this will take around ten minutes, be careful not to scald it!)

  5. When thick, pour the mixture into into the tart shell and refrigerate until set. Garnish with chopped pistachios.

we use our small ballerina pans almost daily in the kitchen, and especially on weekends making customized egg dishes for everyone for breakfast. Perfect stove top and oven safe cooking vessels!
