Blackcurrant Tea Mousse

Twinings Tea: Blackcurrant

Serves 6.

  • 8 oz. fresh or frozen Blackcurrants
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 sachet gelatine
  • 1/2 pint Blackcurrant tea
  • 4 eggs separated
  • 4 oz. sugar
  • Whipped cream and mint leaves to decorate
  1. Cook the Blackcurrants with water until soft enough to sieve. This should give 1/4 pint puree.
  2. Dissolve the gelatine in the hot tea and allow to cool, stirring from time to time.
  3. Whisk the egg yolks, sugar and Blackcurrant puree together until very stiff. Whisk in the gelatine tea mixture.
  4. Turn into the serving dish and place in the refrigerator until set.
  5. Decorate with whipped cream and mint leaves.
