Sometimes, you really need the right piece of equipment. Placing a glass bowl over top of simmering water has worked for me in the past, but when I decided to make ganache tonight, I heard a pop. Before I realized what had happened, the cream and chocolate fell into the water below. The bowl was broken, the ganache was ruined, and I realized I really do need a double boiler, or at least need to use a metal bowl instead.
Just when I thought I would have to miss a day of National Blog Posting Month… it seems I found something to post about. Some day I’ll make ganache and actually get to taste it.
