For the Pares

Welcome, one and all, to the digital version of Nana's recipe box. Cook and enjoy. Share and photograph. Send me those photos and I will post them alongside the recipes. Feel free to comment on any adaptations you have experimented with, so we can all learn and share and cook together. But most of all, thank you to the great chef herself, who is always loved and never forgotten.

Strawberry Mousse

2 cups sliced strawberries

¾ cup sugar

2 egg yolk

1 package gelatine

1 cup milk

¼ cup orange juice (fresh)

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup whipping cream

1/3 cup raspberry jelly

Place milk in saucepan (dissolve gelatine sprinkled over milk - let stand for 2 minutes) over medium heat. Bring milk to a bubbly boil around edges, stirring constantly. Do NOT boil. Pour hot mix into egg and sugar mix, whisking constantly. Return mix to pot. Cook about 2 minutes, continually whisking till custard thickens. Do NOT boil. Stir in orange juice and vanilla. Transfer to a large bowl. Stir in pureed strawberries. Refrigerate, stir occasionally. Beat cream till stiff peaks form, fold cream into strawberry mix - put into glasses or dishes and let set for at least 3 hours. Melt jelly, add some sliced strawberries. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream.

Can be made 8 hours ahead
