Welcome to Day #5 of Chocolate and Flowers Theme Week, and Day #2 of Chocolate and Berries Theme Week.
Today's Ginger and Panela 77% dark bar from Antidote Chocolate (Brooklyn?, NY) was flavorful, bittersweet, yet smooth with no sharp notes and not overly sweet (thank you). Hints of lightly candied ginger popped up now and then.
Panela (similar to brown sugar) sweetened the bar and gave it some extra flavor.
This Antidote Chocolate bar was created with the company founder's unique blend of 50% raw and 50% roasted cacao. (The Arriba cacao beans used were from Ecuador (Camino Verde).)
After tasting a piece of the bar, I broke the remainder into pieces to include in a (cooked) dessert.
The rest became part of a chocolate pot de creme flavored with ginger and small amounts of additional floral spices: vanilla (flowering orchid), cardamom (spice with fragrant, floral notes), saffron (crocus stamens) and kewra (another flower) water.
This dessert was then topped with blueberries and mango pieces
