Mint sorbet, passion fruit jelly and coconut foam

Added by: on Dec 17th, 2010
This is a quite soft jelly that we layer up with the sorbet and foam in a martini glass. Together the three flavors are unbelievable; very different, something you really have to taste for yourself — though some people, I know, don't like the flavor of real coconut. I have had people tell me .. more >

First make the jelly. To make the syrup, put the water in a pan with the sugar, bring to a boil, stirring to ensure all the sugar is dissolved, and then take off the heat and leave to cool. Mix the passion fruit juice and syrup together in a bowl. Warm 3 tablespoons of the 99mixture in a small pan. Remove from the heat, add the gelatin leaves and stir until dissolved. Add to the rest of the juice and syrup mixture, and stir well. Chill in the fridge for 2 hours until set.


To make the foam, warm 3 tablespoons of the coconut puree in a pan, then take off the heat, add the gelatin leaves and stir to dissolve. Add to the rest of the coconut puree. Put through a fine sieve. Spoon the mixture into the siphon, charge it and put into the fridge for 2 hours.


Just before you want to use it, take the jelly from the fridge and break it up with a spoon.


To serve, put a scoop of sorbet into the bottom of a martini glass (or similar) and press down to make a neat layer. Add a spoonful of the broken—up jelly, then shake the siphon and squirt some coconut foam on top. Do this gently, to keep it from mixing with the jelly — the idea is to keep the three different—colored layers of sorbet, jelly and foam separate.

Because it is so acidic, passion fruit curd is much like lemon curd. The amount of sugar needed varies depending on the sweetness of the fruit. Passion fruit puree is very tart, so this recipe calls for a lot of sugar. If you've made a curd and it is not sweet enough, you can sweeten it with corn syrup on if the curd is the base for a mousse, by oversweetening the whipped cream. Passion ..

To turn a fruit curd into a fruit mousse, fold in whipped cream. If you're not using the mousse right away and serving it within a day add gelatin as we do here to keep it from separating. Note: Whenever you combine tropical fruit with gelatin, bring the tropical fruit puree to a simmer before you add the gelatin. This kills protease enzymes that would otherwise interfere with the gelatin ..
