FROST WITH STRAWBERRY CREAM (Sicilian recipe)Print This
- DOSE 8 monoportions:
- 1,8 kilos of strawberries (in order to obtain NET 1 liter of juice)
- 130-150 grams of sugar (Depending on the sweetness of strawberries)
- 90 grams cornstarch (corn starch) or flour
- the juice of one small lemon
- 200 ml whipping cream
- 80 grams of powdered sugar
- pistachio to decorate the cake, to taste
I suggest you prepare the frost of strawberries with one day in advance: Carefully wash the strawberries, dry them, remove the stem and cut into pieces. Mix the strawberries with the blender or blender, then pass the strawberry juice through a sieve to remove the seeds. Is’ a tedious job, but I guarantee that the result will be far better. Once you've got a liter of liquid (should be quite thick), Add the lemon juice.
Mix in a bowl the sugar and the cornstarch, so it will be easier to dissolve the starch in strawberry juice. Mix sugar and cornstarch in strawberry juice with the help of a whip, until the powders are completely dissolved.
Cook the frost on low heat strawberries, stirring constantly with a whisk, because starch tends to settle to the bottom and burn, until the liquid has thickened and the surface will have started to form small ripples.
Pour the frost of strawberries in cups that you have chosen and then cool to room temperature. When it is completely cold, refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight.
Before serving the ice of strawberries, cut into brunoise (tiny cubes) a few strawberries, drizzle with lemon juice and chopped Mint and arrange them on the surface of the cake. Whip the cream with the icing sugar and decorate the ice to taste strawberries, garnish the cake with chopped pistachios and a few leaves of fresh mint. Bon appétit!
