Topic: coffee grounds in food (8 msgs / 176 lines)
1) From: Steve Carlson
I'm curious about using coffee grounds in food.  I know that tiramisu is
traditionally made with a dusting of coffee ground on top.  (I think the
english translation of "tiramisu" is "pick-me-up," and that could be
explained by the coffee grounds).  Have any of you been using your
home-roasted coffee grounds in tiramisu or other food?  I think someone
previously mentioned steeping coffee grounds in cream, then filtering
it, for use in ice cream -- yum!
We recently had a guacamole contest at work, and now I am fixated on trying
a "guaccacino," which I'm envisioning as pounded avodaco laced with
finely-ground lemony YirgaCheffe, among other things.  It could be a train
wreck, but this may be the start of something big.
My guess is that whatever the application, it is good to have a quality
grinder to get a fine, uniform grind.

Hi Steve,
I sometimes use a little ground coffee in rubs for meat that I cook on my smoker.

I like to liven up vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt by sprinkling  
ground espresso beans on top--decaf or regular. Lower-carb than  
chocolate syrup.

Coffee in dry rubs works well. Try this on a roast;,if you eat venison it's
super with stronger flavored meats... If you try it on grilled meats, just
sprinkle a couple tablespoons on the meat
cheers,

Aromatic Spiced Coffee Rub for Meat
Makes about 1 cup of rub
8 whole star anise
6 cloves
4 tablespoons whole coffee beans
1 tablespoon black peppercorns
2 tablespoon white peppercorns
1 teaspoon dried sage
2 tablespoons salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Grind the spices together in a spice grinder, careful to let the contents
settle before removing the lid. Mix well in a bowl with salt, sugar, and
garlic powder.  Rub on beef roast or venison and let sit for at least 2
hours.  Roast the meat as directed by your recipe.

I grind it super-fine and throw some in my biscotti. Add a few drops of
anise oil, and I'm in heaven.

I took a nice handful of a Costa Rica roast, ground it very, very 
fine, then mixed it thoroughly in very creamy vanilla ice cream.  I 
have to say that it turned out just wonderful.  It had a better taste 
than "coffee" ice cream, my friends really liked it and felt that the 
coffee flavor truly highlighted the good vanilla I used.  That half 
gallon didn't last long, but that is okay.  I now have a nice dessert 
I can bring to dinner gatherings as one of the desserts.
The other place I tried it was in Costa Rica.  We have mango and 
guava trees growing in our yard.  I took some of them, plus some 
other fruit - bananas and pineapple.  I took the fruit and cut it up 
like a fruit salad, added a bit of plain yogurt, then added ground 
coffee from a local coffee shop.  It added a very nice flavor to the 
fruit salad.  I will say that a non-coffee lover or drinker most 
likely wouldn't go for it, but who knows, they might just be surprised.

I haven't made coffee ice cream from scratch, but I have mixed ground coffe=

coffee shake at a burger joint in a nearby town that was made with ground c=
offee.
