Oh My! The fresh farm market had wonderful sweet red peppers at a good price. We love roasted red peppers. We freeze most of the roasted peppers. But they are generally used in a short time.
Derin made a Sacher Torte. People fuss about this special Viennese cake, but don't. It is easy to make. The real Sacher Torte is little dry and you might like to substitute your favorite rich chocolate cake instead and that would be OK. This cake is soaked with rum syrup which we paint on and glazed with apricot preserves. Although not traditional you can use your favorite preserves. Then the cake is frosted with a chocolate ganache. One of the best things about this chocolate cake is it stores in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, bring it to room temperature before serving. We served it with some fresh raspberries from the garden and whipped cream. Yummy!
