Three Berry Mouse

It was such a hot day yesterday (temps were 45c) and I decided to play in the kitchen with the air conditioning on. After a little searching in the pantry and freezer, came up with this Berry Mouse.
I just used my judgement for the recipe, and I will type it up later today.

Sorry I didn't get back to this sooner but I had a few things I had to tend to.

I have been to the Aeroplane jelly website to do some research. See this link....http://www.aeroplanejelly.com.au/ There are some lovely fresh ideas on there using the jelly crystals. For my Berry Mouse above, I used *Berry Blast* which is strawberry, raspberry and blackcurrant.

I used two packs. First, I put the white of one egg around my serving dish and then sprinkled some of the jelly crystals from one pack, onto the egg white. Then I dissolved the rest of the crystals (1 and 3/4 packs) in one cup of boiling water in a glass jug, when they had dissolved enough, I added one cup of cold water and let it stand to cool a little more.

1 cup = 250mls

When ready I started adding 2 cups of thickened dairy cream, then whisked and whisked until it became aerated and thicker. Put into the fridge to chill for an hour and then whisked again. At this point, I poured the contents of the jug into the prepared dish and back to the fridge for a couple of hours to set properly.

I served ours with a mixed berry compote, which I made by using frozen loganberries, strawberries and raspberries, a little sugar and a good slurp of strawberry liqueur. Bringing it to a boil and then simmering for a few minutes until the fruit was mushy.

Might I add at this point, the aroma in my kitchen was Divine.
If you can not get Aeroplane jelly crystals in the country you are in, I am sure that any make will do.
The Lime cheese
cake is next on
my list to try.

I can't wait to see the recipe Hottie:) Is the bowl decorated with jelly crystals? It all looks so feminine and COOL (not Fonzie cool, but coolING:)). Job well done I'd say:D

That's wonderful Hottie thank you:) I bet it really feels like it melts in your mouth:) It would be fun to play around a bit with different colours (thinking from my children's pov here:)) to see what you can come up with. I bet it went down well with the heat - almost work as your main meal on a 40+ day!
