Blackcurrant Mousse

ingredients

serves 4
250 g (9 oz) fresh blackcurrants
1/4 cup (50 g) 2 oz caster sugar (superfine granulated)
2 tsp (10 ml) lemon juice
2 tsp (10 ml) gelatine
125 ml (4 fl oz) double cream (heavy cream)
2 egg whites
whipped cream to decorate

method

1. Reserve a few whole blackcurrants for decoration.

2. Press the rest through a sieve into a measuring jug, then make up the puree to 150 ml (1/4 pint) with water.

3. Combine the blackcurrant puree, sugar and lemon juice in a mixing bowl.

4. Place 30 ml (2 tbsp) water in a small heatproof bowl and sprinkle the gelatine on to the liquid.

5. Stand the bowl over a saucepan of hot water and stir the gelatine until it has dissolved completely. Cool slightly.

6. Fold a little of the blackcurrant puree into the cooled gelatine, then whisk this mixture into the bowl of blackcurrant puree.

7. Leave in a cool place until the mixture starts to set.

8. In a deep bowl, whip the cream until it just holds its shape, then fold into the blackcurrant mixture with a metal spoon.

9. Whisk the egg whites in a clean, grease-free bowl, and fold in.

10. Make sure that the mixture is thoroughly and evenly blended but do not overmix.

11. Pour gently into a glass dish, a wetted 500 ml (17 fl oz) mould or individual glasses.

12. Refrigerate for 1 - 2 hours until set, then turn out if necessary and decorate with whipped cream and the reserved blackcurrants.
