Apple Snow

We just love the variety of Apples in stores at the moment! Pink Lady (our favourite), Breaburn, Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, Sweet Starking, Royal Gala, and the list goes on… We just had to make this light and delicious Apple dessert!

Serves 6 - 8

6 Granny Smith Apples
2 Jumbo Egg Whites
1/2 Cup Sugar
1 Tbls Vanilla Essence

How to make it
Preheat oven to 180°C.
Rinse apples.
Place whole apples in a baking tray.
Pour enough hot water into the pan to cover the bottom of the apples.
Bake apples for ±45 minutes - or until they are tender. (They must not fall apart.)
Cool slightly.
Remove skin and core of apples, until only the pulp remains.
Place apple pulp in blender and blend until smooth.
Beat egg whites until stiff - gradually adding half the sugar bit by bit whilst beating.
Fold egg whites into apple puree - gently - don't beat it in.
Fold in the remaining sugar and vanilla essence.
Beat with electric beater or mixer until foamy and shiny.

Dish into a glass serving bowl or individual glasses (Martini glasses look very fancy!) and chill for about 3 hours before serving.

Garnish with thin slices of apple with the skin still on. (Place apple slices in water with lemon juice to prevent discolouring.)

*If you don't own an electric beater, don't even go there. Whisking by hand will leave you with injured wrists!
* You can use rum instead of vanilla essence for a ‘grown up’ version.
