Apple Snow: A Light Dessert

This  oldfashioned dessert that is very light and refreshing. My Mother in Law liked to make it for us. She cooked simple, hesalthy food that always tasted so good. Best made with a sweetish apple, rather than Granny Smiths.

It  does need to be put into the fridge for at least a couple of hours to become well chilled .You could add a squeeze of  lemon juice and some finely grated lemon rind, Sometimes I also sprinkle it lightly with a mixture of brown sugar and cinnamon .


6 sweet apples ( about 800gm) peeled and sliced
3 tbsp of water
2 egg whites
1-2 tbsp of castor sugar


Put apples in microsafe dish with 3 tbsp of water.
Cover with a plate and microwave for about 10 minutes (stirring once) until the apples are tender.
Leave to cool for a while and then whizz in a food processor to make a smooth puree.

Beat 2 egg whites with 1-2 tablespoons of castor sugar until thick. Stir a little of the eggwhite  into the apple puree to lighten it and then scoop in the rest.

Ladle into small cups or glasses and chill it in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving.
