Here is a recipe I came up a long time ago. The orignal recipe called for beaten egg whites, but I don’t like eating raw eggs at all. So I switched it with some heavy cream. This recipe isn’t for anyone on a diet or someone with dairy allergies, so be carefull!! 🙂
1 lb. Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
zest and juice of 1 lemon
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 tbsp. unsweetened apple juice
1/3 cup superfine sugar
2 egg yolks
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup heavy cream
green food coloring, optional
In a small saucepan, combine the apples, lemon zest, lemon juice, cinnamon, and apple juice. Cover and simmer until the apples are soft, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a blender or food processor and puree until smooth. Return to the saucepan and stir in the sugar. Add the egg yolks and stir over low heat for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool for 10 minutes. Stir in the sour cream and refrigerate for 1 hour. In a large mixing bowl*** beat the heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Fold into the cold apple puree. Fold in a few drops of green food coloring, if using… This is beautiful served in tall stem clear wine glasses. Garnish with apple slices or fresh mint.. So yummy!!! 🙂
Refrigerate your mixing bowl and whip before beating your whipped cream, your cream will get higher peaks and be more fluffy.
