|47 min.||22 min.||1 hour 9 min.|
|1||Prepare a confectioner's custard: pour 250 ml milk into a pan, add the ½ vanilla pod and bring to the boil.
As soon as the milk boils, add the zest of 1 lime. Remove from the heat, cover and leave to infuse 10 minutes.
|2||Prepare the custard by mixing together 50 g caster sugar and 3 egg yolks, then add 20 g cornflour and mix thoroughly.
Pour the hot milk onto this mixture and stir constantly until thoroughly mixed. Then pour it back into the pan through a sieve to remove the vanilla and lime zest.
|3||Cook as for a normal confectioner's custard, then stand the pan to cool in cold water, stirring occasionally to avoid a skin forming.
When the custard is still warm, add the juice of 1 lime and 4 drops food colouring (green), and beat vigourously.
Leave to cool completely, still with the pan in cold water.
|4||Meanwhile, prepare or thaw 300 ml Blackcurrant coulis, which should be completely smooth in texture.||10 min.|
|5||Mix 20 g caster sugar with 2 g agar-agar. This is to help the agar-agar blend more easily with the syrup.||3 min.|
|6||Bring 200 ml Sugar syrup to a simmer and tip in the mixture of sugar and agar-agar while beating vigourously to mix.||5 min.|
|7||Then pour the hot syrup into the blackcurrant coulis and mix well.
You can use a hand-mixer briefly for this if you wish, to ensure thorough mixing.
|8||Begin assembling the verrines by putting a layer of cold (or barely warm) confectioner's custard in bottom of each glass. Use a forcing bag if possible, as this makes the job much easier.||7 min.|
|9||Pour a layer of blackcurrant coulis on top while this is still warm and sufficiently runny.||5 min.|
|10||Finish with a layer of whipped cream (chantilly), which you can dust with a little matcha green tea powder.||7 min.|
