pair with our Red Pump 2014

Serves 4


-2 cups heavy cream

-1/3 cup sugar

-1 vanilla bean split, remove seeds, and set aside

-2 ¼ teaspoons powdered gelatin

-3 tablespoons cold water

-Strawberry marmalade*


Pour the cream, sugar and vanilla bean pod and seeds into a pot and heat to a simmer, whisking occasionally, then turn off. Allow cream to steep for at least 45 minutes. Remove pod after steeping is finished.

While the cream is steeping, begin making the strawberry marmalade.

Combine ingredients in a small sauce pan and bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium and cook until the berries are soft and falling apart. Pour marmalade into a bowl and cool completely.

Take the gelatin and dissolve into the cold water letting it sit for 5-10 minutes.

Rewarm the cream mixture and pour over the gelatin, whisking until combined.

Fold in the marmalade then divide evenly into ramekins of your choice. Refrigerate until set, 4-6 hours.

*To make your own strawberry marmalade

1 quart fresh Strawberries, hulled and halved

-1/2 cup Sugar

-1/4 Vioginer or another white wine with sweeter notes

Southern Living Idea House in Charlottesville

At Pippin Hill, we believe that premium preservation communities make great neighbors, especially when they feature the Southern Living Idea House. Bundoran Farm, our next-door neighbor just a few miles outside of Charlottesville, has been selected to present this year’s home from June 27th until December 27th, 2015. The celebrated property, which Southern Living is calling the “quintessential Virginia farmhouse,” sits beautifully atop rolling hills and a carefully protected landscape, and is definitely worth the trip to the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains for a tour.

Meet the Design Team:

Make your trip even more worthwhile by stopping by Pippin Hill on your way to or from Bundoran Farm. Join us for lunch and enjoy our decadent vineyard-to-table cuisine before your tour, or come in for a wine tasting on your way out. You’ll leave fully satisfied with a quenched palate and tips for remodeling and redecorating your home according to the sustainable country lifestyle.
