How to make Yorksire Pudding, provenance-style
We had a nice little dinner of Braised Venison with Pureed Squash and Cranberry-Red Wine Jus. A request for Yorkshire Pudding from Sarah reminded me I had just found my grandmother’s recipe for it. To make it work for us, we made two small changes, with delicious result.The Sydney Island Venison was slowly braised; the squash was simmered in vegetable stock and then quickly pureed with some milk and butter; the dried cranberries were bloomed in some red wine. The braising liquid was reduced with the now cranberry infused red wine for the jus. Grandma Judy’s Yorkshire Pudding 2 eggs
