Sweet potato Mousse Parfaits







I loved this dessert and we fight by the last glass:)))

Times ago I saw a Mousse recipe from Ina Garten but  she made with pumpkin and I think this would be awesome with sweet potatoes, I love them and think are something special I know many of you in States make sweet potatoes in savoy plates and is nice but I love desserts with it, is really similar to a fruit we have here called Lucuma that is sweet and have a similar color, try this dessert I think you would like!

I have others sweet potatoes recipe but a really wonderful is Suspiro Limeño (with sweet potato) from Peru.

Parfait de camotes o boniato







Breve introducción



Es probable que muchos de uds conozcan los camotes pero otros quizas no. O no los han probado, se ven poco.

Es un hecho que no son muy usados aqui en Chile (quizas porque la gente prepara cosas más rápidas o le da lata no sé)
En todo caso tengo que comentarles que adoro los camotes, antiguamente se usaban mucho más y  he encontrado en el cuaderno de mi abuelita Chela antigua recetas con camotes, aqui siempre se ha usado mas para postre.

El camote es similar al zapallo amarillo pero más delicioso.
Se parece en sabor a la lúcuma.
De hecho tengo una receta de suspiro Limeño con camotes que es maravilloso (la receta es peruana) .
Este mousse es riquisimo y no es dificil.
Pueden cocer los camotes (con cáscara como) dejar enfriar, pelar y moler, si no lo ocupan al tiro poner en un tupper pero usar 1 o 2 dias despues.
Mis camotes los compré en el Lider, en el Jumbo tambien hay.
Donde mas´hay es en la vega, llega mucho camote peruano.
De hecho he visto que se vende camote congelado .

Ingredientes
(6 personas)
1 sobre de gelatina sin sabor
1/4 taza de ron
2 tazas de camotes cocidos y molidos
1/2 taza de azúcar granulada
1/2 taza de azúcar rubia
2 yemas
2 cucharadita de cascara de naranja rallada
1 cucharadita canela molida
1/4 cucharadita de nuez moscada en polvo
1 pizca de sal
 1 taza de crema
1 cucharadita vainilla

Crema batida
1 taza de crema helada para batir
1 cucharada de azucar granulada
1 cucharadita vainilla

Preparación

Para hacer el mousse primero poner la gelatina sin sabor en un sabor y agregar el ron.
Revolver y dejar 10 minutes para suavizar la gelatina.

En un bol grande mezclar el puré de camote, el azúcar blanca y el azúcar rubia, yemas de huevo, cáscara de naranja rallada, canela molida, nuez moscada y la pizca de sal batir hasta que esté homogeneo.
Calentar agua en una ollita hasta la mitad y ahí poner a baño maría la jalea mezclada con el ron.
Cuando esté disuelta agregar a la mezcla de camotes.
En un bol batir la crema agregando cuando esté firme la vanilla . Agregar esta crema a la mezcla de camotes. reservar.


Hacer la crema batida
Batir el resto de la  crema hasta que esté firme y agregar azucar y vainilla.

Para hacer los postres.
Repartir la una parte de la mezcla en las copas.
Luego agregar encima un poco de crema batida.
Luego el resto de puré de camotes y finalmente un poco de
crema espolvoreando encima canela.
Cubrir cada copa con un papel plástico y dejar de dos a tres horas en el refrigerador antes de servir.
Es un postre que es muy bueno para una cena en la noche porque se hace antes .Buen provecho.

  23. En la zona de España en la que vivo, se usa mucho el boniato para la repostería. Sin embargo, yo tengo poca costumbre de comerlo, y es una pena, porque está bien rico. Y esta receta, con esta presentación, es todo un lujo.
    Un besote, guapa.

  30. Me parece que a lo que llamas camotes nosotros le decimos boniato (sweet potato). Tiene la misma forma y color que el que tenemos en Cuba y en Londres. Ese dulce es una preciosidad. Me has embullado para subir una receta con boniato que se llama "boniatillo". :-) En unas semanas la subire.

    Saludos desde Londres.
