Pomegranate and strawberry semifreddo (semifreddo de frutillas y granadas)






Finally after almost  3 weeks when I could not do almost anything or write or make a post on my blog I am slowly starting to use more my right hand. 

The problem when I fell was on my right shoulder but you already know that the arm is a whole. I still use sling but I move more and cook more (with my left hand) so I made this dessert to go back.

Thank you for all your greetings and messages, they helped me to be more animated in a time that I feel useless.
Lots of love xo


Note: this dessert is with pomegranates and strawberries but you can use only strawberries  or other delicious berries.

Pomegranate and strawberry semifreddo

Ingredients

4 free range eggs separated
3/4 cup  sugar 
2 teaspoon vanilla extract 
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1  1/2 cup cream whipped
150 grams strawberries blitzed to a pulp
100 grams  pomegranate rubies
(or blueberries or raspberries)

Method

Place the egg yolks , 1/2 cup sugar and vanilla in a heat proof bowl and beat until pale and thick.

Place the bowl over a casserole of simmering water and beat until the mixture doubles in volume.

In a separate bowl beat the eggs whites with cream of tartar and remaining sugar until stiff peaks form.

Fold the whipped cream with both egg mixtures and place in a 
20 x 10  cm loaf tin.(or other size)

 Line tin with clingfilm, allowing a 5 cm overhang all sides.
Gently mix through strawberry pulp and pomegranate rubies.
Cover with overganging film and freeze about 6 to 8 hours or overnight.

Let stand 8 to 10 minutes at room temperature to soften, then turn onto a platter and remove the clingfilm.  
 Garnish with some strawberries, pomegranate seeds and mint.

  1. Hello Gloria, so lovely to see and read this post.
    Glad that things are slowly improving for you, I guess you just have to be patient as things may take a little longer to do.

    I would think you have physical therapy exercise to do too … so hope this is going well.

    This is a lovely looking recipe - deliciousness on a plate :)

    Continued good healing.

    All the best Jan

  2. It sometimes takes a long time to recover from an injury, Gloria. Especially when it is a sprain and not a broken bone which seems to heal faster. I am glad to see you posting and typing, even if it's more with one hand :) You need to give it time and patience and do the therapies when your doctor tells you it's okay to do them ♥ Hugs, Dear!

  19. Hi Gloria, I too am recovering from an issue. Mine lead to surgery in my left wrist (just below the thumb) to release a tendon that wouldn't heal. Being left-handed it was a problem. Like yourself, I too am back on the mend... Lovely dessert...sounds good and looks great! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
