Honey Apple Snow Recipe

Honey Apple Snow Recipe

Ingredients: Serves 6

12 mint leaves
2 eggs, separated
60 ml/4 tbsp caster (superfine) sugar

300 ml milk
900 g/2 lb cooking (tart) apples, sliced

Finely grated rind and juice of 1 small lemon
45 ml/3 tbsp clear honey
15 ml powdered gelatine
45 ml/3 tbsp water
150 ml whipping cream, whipped

Method:

Brush the mint leaves with a little of the lightly beaten egg white, then dust with some of the caster sugar to coat completely. Leave to dry on a sheet of greaseproof (waxed) paper. Put the egg yolks in a bowl with the remaining caster sugar. Whisk until thick and pale. Warm the milk in a saucepan. Pour into the eggs and sugar and mix until smooth. Return to the saucepan and cook gently, stirring, until the custard thickens. Do not boil. Remove from the heat and leave to cool.


Put the apple slices in a separate pan with the lemon rind and juice. Cook gently, stirring occasionally, until pulpy. Sweeten to taste with the honey and leave to cool. Sprinkle the gelatine over the water in a small bowl. Leave to soften for 5 minutes. Stand the bowl in a pan of hot water and stir until completely dissolved (or dissolve briefly in a microwave). Puree the apple and custard in a blender or food processor with the gelatine. Leave until on the point of setting. Whisk the egg whites until stiff and fold into the mixture with a metal spoon. Torn into a glass serving dish and chill until set. Cover with whipped cream and decorate with the frosted mint leaves before serving.
