Cherry + Astragalus Diamond Hearts
A beautiful two-toned diamond heart that varies in color, flavor, and texture in each layer. Dried rose petals, that I collected last year, along with crushed freeze dried organic sweet cherries, are sprinkled into the bottom of the molds and my pink astragalus white chocolate poured over. When it sets, a freshly tempered batch of raw chocolate
This is a highly magical and softly feminine creation, just like the Pink Astragalus Crystals with Cardamom Rose Cream , and with it I have quite a bit of interesting information and folklore to share about some of the ingredients.
~ A lot you never knew you wanted to know about astragalus ~
The pristine “white chocolate,” I make is colored with beet powder and has astragalus added into the mix. Astragalus powder is a creamy beige, yet astragalus itself is a yellowish root whose name in Chinese means “yellow life energy.” It is a sweet, warming tonic that increases Yang qi.
It is said to protect the body from pathogens by strengthening the outer layer of energy that runs the periphery of the body. In research it has been found to enhance the secretory IgA, which secretes from glands in response to potential allergens and invaders (keeping them “at the periphery,”). This includes tears, mucous, vaginal fluids, gastrointestinal fluids, etc. Stress depletes IgA and food sensitivities and infections rage in the lack of this production.
It is known to improve quality of life in those with serious health conditions, likely by its ability to improve cellular immunity and provide antibody protection. It is useful for fending off many ailments, viruses, and infections. Interestingly, it is believed to promote upright posture and proper position of the organs. It strengthens the lungs, promotes urination, reduces edema, remedies shortness of breath, inhibits tumor growth, balanced blood sugar, increases fertility and libido, and tonifies the spleen.
Astragalus is said to be used in magic to protect against hexing spells, psychic attacks, and keep energy grounded and focused during rituals and practices that require concentration.
The pink chocolate is made with a base of organic raw heirloom cacao butter and local maple syrup (for those of you that claim white chocolate “isn’t a thing,” the fat of the cacao bean + a sweetener = white chocolate), with the astragalus and beet powder for color (and many nutritive properties + minerals) added in.
