Looking for new ways to eat fresh summer fruits such as cantaloupe…..here is a nice refreshing dessert (or you could use it as a first course).
- 2 tbsp. of unflavoured gelatin
- 1/4 cup cold water
- 1/2 medium cantaloupe, seeded, pared and pureed
- 2 cups whipping cream
- 4 egg whites at room temperature
- 2 cups berry sugar
To soften the gelatin, sprinkle over the cold water. Stir this over a double boiler with bottom pan full of hot water to dissolve.
Cool and add to the cantaloupe (already pureed). Beat the cream until soft peaks form and add 1 cup of sugar and continue beating until stiff peaks form.
Beat egg whites until fluffy and add the remaining sugar gradually. Fold this into the cream mixture and put into 8 of your prettiest dessert dishes.
Chill for at least 1 hour before presenting to the table.
Add some diced cantaloupe on top . Yummy!
