Lime Mousse

Ingredients

2 teaspoons gelatine powder
1/2 cup water
1 cup sugar (caster)
1/2 cup lime juice
2 teaspoons grated lime zest
1 cup cream

Preparation

1
Soften the gelatine in the water. Melt it in a bain marie over heat and set aside to cool.
2
Beat the egg yolks, sugar and lime juice until combined. Stir the mixture constantly over heat until it forms a custard, coating the back of a spoon. Do not boil - remove from the heat and cool.
3
Add the gelatine and lime zest. Beat the egg whites until stiff but not dry. Fold into the cool custard using a spatula. Whip the cream and, when the mousse is beginning to set around the edges, fold it in also.
4
Pour the mixture into a large savarin mould and chill at least 2 hours.
5
Serve with fresh lime wedges and whipped cream.
6
Oranges and lemons, or a combination of each, can also be substituted.
