Macaron 4: Orange with Bittersweet Chocolate Ganache

September 28, Week 4
Macaron 4: Orange with bittersweet Chocolate Ganache. I am tired of chocolate and brown colored macarons. I need some color, so I made these beautiful orange colored and flavored one. I ground the almond flour to an espresso fine powdered and then sifted it. Now the flour is like angel dust. This developed nice feet but it seems that maybe the orange extract made them hollow inside. This batch was really, really fragile. I used a different recipe, that I will not be trying again. The ganache is really good. I have been just eating that alone. Nice and milky not all the way smooth, there are little bits of chocolate bits that are delicious!
