Raspberry Swirl Mousse.


It just doesn't get better than this. My raspberry patch has finally, after years of underwhelming results, decided that it's ready to do some serious berrying. We got some bowls full! I had all these fantastic ideas about jam (we're not there yet though - maybe 3 more years) and baking and all that but it seemed like I couldn't get to the raspberries before they got eaten - how frustrating is that?


I couldn't let the season go by without doing something though. I managed to hide away 2 cups of berries in the fridge which nobody found and pillaged - yeah. They're not mad at me though. In fact, they are quite happy... because I made this


Raspberry Swirl Mousse. It's a hybrid. I kind of threw it together but it tasted great. It's actually pretty easy too.


Take two cups of raspberries and cover it with 1 1/4 cups of superfine sugar (I'll explain later)
Let it sit for about an hour (I didn't though and it didn't really matter - I gave it about 30 min)
After it's sat for a while mash it up into a chunky syrup.


Whip up two egg whites. In a separate and cold bowl whip up 1 1/2 cup whipping cream. Fold the two whipped things together. Put about 3/4 of the raspberry syrup in with the whipped things and gently swirl it in. Divide it into 4 dishes/bowls/whatever. Divide the remaining syrup on top of each mound.


Refridgerate for at least an hour (we did this but it was hard) and then enjoy.
BEAUTIFUL.


Kid #1 downed her's in 5 seconds flat! kid #2 didn't go for 'em, though. Probably the berries, since they're not chocolate.

Oh Wanda. How am I supposed to keep on my diet when you post recipes like this one on your blog? But I think I will try this one tho. Can I use frozen raspberries or should it be fresh ones? Thank you!!

Sorry! It's not toooo rich though. Fresh raspberries work best if you can get them. Frozen one's might be too much liquid - you might need to drain them - play it by ear.
