My grandmother used to make this when my sister and I were little and I remember how much we loved it. I really don’t think you need to add any sugar, especially if you choose naturally sweet apples, but if you really must add sugar, then 1 teaspoon of caster sugar whisked into the egg whites should do it. This dessert looks fabulous served in a chilled glass.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
4 apples, peeled and sliced
2 tablespoons water
2 large egg whites
1 lemon, zested, some reserved to garnish
4 small mint leaves

Method

  1. Place the apples in a saucepan with the water. Bring to the boil, then lower the heat and simmer, covered, until the apples are very soft. If you’re in a real hurry, you could microwave the apples in a microwave-safe container for approximately 10 minutes on full power. But be careful as the apples will be really hot. Drain the cooked apples then whiz them to a purée in a blender or food processor and leave to cool. When cool, refrigerate until chilled.
  2. Whisk the egg whites to form stiff peaks, as if making meringue. Gently fold in the apple purée and lemon zest. Divide the mixture between 4 chilled glasses and return to the fridge until ready to serve. Top with a mint leaf and a little more lemon zest.
