Sicilian citrus frost

Remember to prepare the citrus frost (and generally any fruit frost) at least 6 hours before serving, but I suggest you do so with one day in advance, Why must have time to firm up in the refrigerator.

Choose intact and firm citrus fruits. Wash them and cut them in half. I used oranges, mandarins and clementines. Squeeze the citrus fruits and strain the juice through a fine sieve to remove any remaining pulp. Sift the corn starch and add the sugar: mix well, Then start pouring the citrus juice as you see in the VIDEO RECIPE, little by little, stirring with a whisk until the starch and sugars have completely dissolved.

Add all the citrus juice and put it in a saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly with a whisk, because otherwise the frost will stick to the bottom of the pot, until it boils. you will see that, as it heats up, Citrus juice will change consistency becoming thicker, & Color, becoming more shiny and intense. Allow to simmer, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes, then turn off the heat.

Pour the citrus frost into non-stick molds soaked in cold water or into individual cups. Allow it to cool completely to room temperature and then store it in the refrigerator, covered with plastic wrap to touch food, for at least six hours or overnight. Remember to leave it at room temperature for 10-15 minutes before enjoying it. Bon appétit!
