Stage 1 - 10 min.
Prepare a confectioner's custard: pour 250 ml
into a pan, add the ½
and bring to the boil.
As soon as the milk boils, add the zest of 1
. Remove from the heat, cover and leave to infuse 10 minutes.
Stage 2 - 10 min.
Prepare the custard by mixing together 50 g
, then add 20 g
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.
Stage 3 - 7 min.
Cook as for a normal
, 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
and 4 drops food colouring (green), and beat vigourously.
Leave to cool completely, still with the pan in cold water.
Stage 4 - 10 min.
Meanwhile, prepare or thaw 300 ml
, which should be completely smooth in texture.
Stage 5 - 3 min.
Mix 20 g
with 2 g
. This is to help the agar-agar blend more easily with the syrup.
Stage 6 - 5 min.
Bring 200 ml
and tip in the mixture of sugar and agar-agar while beating vigourously to mix.
Stage 7 - 5 min.
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.
Stage 8 - 7 min.
Begin assembling the verrines by putting a layer of cold (or barely warm) confectioner's custard in bottom of each glass. Use a
if possible, as this makes the job much easier.
Stage 9 - 5 min.
Pour a layer of blackcurrant coulis on top while this is still warm and sufficiently runny.
Stage 10 - 7 min.
Finish with a layer of whipped cream (chantilly), which you can dust with a little matcha green tea powder.
If you wish to prepare the dessert in advance, this is not a problem for the 2 layers of lime and blackcurrant, but it's wise to prepare the whipped cream at the last minute; it's always better.
