This dish tastes best when using young green beans. Remove the stem but leave the tail for a more natural, freshly-picked look. Pairs well with steamed rice and an Asian-style beef, chicken or tofu.
The traditional foods of Scotland tend to be beautifully rustic, hearty and filling. They are full of the flavors of the earth and many utilize the deep and complex flavors of Scotch whisky. Cranachan (Kran-uh-ken) is a layered dessert that combines the nutty flavors of toasted oats with the lightness of whipped cream, the tart flavor of raspberries, and the warmth of honey and whisky. It’s all the things you’d hope for in a simple dessert.
