Lemon and white chocolate mousse with strawberries













Maybe this post would be called strawberries fields for ever....
most of you know how I love berries, around the year, and yesterday when I saw these strawberries I think I have to make something delicious with them and here is, you can use fresh or freeze strawberries in this Lemon and white chocolate mousse with strawberries...

The recipe is from Bon Appetit 



Ingredients ( 4 or 5 servings)


5 large egg yolks
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
4 teaspoons of grated lemon peel
pinch of salt
1/4 plus 2  2/3 cups chilled heavy whipping cream
100 grs. white chocolate finely chopped
4 cups slices strawberries


Method

Whisk eggs yolks, sugar, lemon juice, lemon peel, and salt in a medium metal bowl to blend.
Set bowl over saucepan of simmering water. Whisk until mixture is very thick, about 5 to 6 minutes, remove from bowl
over water .Cool lemon mousse base to room temperature.

Combine 1/4 cream and white chocolate in another metal bowl.
Set bowl over saucepan of barely simmering water.
Stir constanly until chocolate is soft and almost melted.
Remove bowl from water and stir until white chocolate is melted and smooth.
Cool white chocolate  base to room temperature.
Beat remaining 2 2/3 cups of cream in large bowl until firm peaks form.
Divide whipped cream between both mousses bases. folding 1 cup at time.-
Layer scant 1/4 cup lemon mousse in 4 or 5 parfait glasses or wineglasses, top with some strawberries.
Layer scant 1/4  cup white chocolate mousse over strawberries.
Repeat layering one more time.
Spoon strawberries over top of each parfait  and serve.
Keep up refrigerate.

Mousse de chocolate blanco y limón con frutillas







Bueno, los que me conocen hace un tiempo saben como me gustan los berries, (atención este es un blog en que se hacen muchos berries:)   y ayer ví estas frutillas (fresas) en Providencia (siempre tienen una fruta preciosa) y digan lo que digan NO es tan caro y yo tenía que aprovechar que andaba por esos lugares.
En fin hice este mousse  de limón con frutillas que es delicioso y que puede ser un postre rico para Navidad. :)



Ingredientes

5 yemas
1/2 taza de azúcar
1/2 taza de jugo de limón
4 cucharaditas de cáscara de limón rallada
pizca de sal
1/4 taza más 2  2/3 tazas de crema para batir
100 grs. de chocolate en barra blanco
4 tazas de frutillas o fresas cortadas a lo largo

Preparación

Batir las yemas con el azúcar, jugo de limón, cáscara de limón
y la pizca de sal  en un bol mediano , mezclar bien. Este bol  colocarlo sobre una ollita con agua caliente (baño maría)
Batir bien hasta que la mezcla se vaya espesando, esto toma como unos 6 minutos.
Retirar el bol de la olla con agua caliente.
Dejar enfríar esta crema a temperatura ambiente.

Mezclar 1/4 taza decrema y el chocolate blanco en un bol y ponerlo a baño maría, Revolver constantemente
hasta que se vaya mezclando y tenga una textura suave y cremosa.
Retirar y dejar reposar a temperatura ambiente.

Batir las dos tazas  y 2/3 de crema que quedan batirlas hasta que la crema esté firme . Dividir la crema entre los dos mousses que se ha  preparado, el de limón y el de chocolate blanco.
Reservar.
En unas copas poner las frutillas, luego un poco de crema de limón, despues frutillas nuevamente y despues la mousse de chocolate blanco, repetir las capas y finalmente colocar algunas frutillas en el tope del postre y unas hojitas de menta si tienen.
 Este postre se puede hacer el día anterior se mantiene perfecto.
Tambien si no tienen chocolate blanco se puede hacer solo con la mousse de limón, para mí lo mejor:)
