Grape Mousse

Grape Mousse

This is a grape mousse with a refreshing taste. I used 100% grape juice and it turned out delicious. This is good to make when grapes are in season.

Ingredients: Makes 6 cups

Grape Mousse:
100% Grape juice
200 cc
Sugar
30 g
Yogurt
80 g
Heavy cream
120 g
Gelatin
5 g
Grape Gelatin:
100% grape juice
200 cc
Gelatin
3 g
Grapes (any kind you like)
You can use Kyoho, Campbell, Niagara or any other grapes you like
9 - 15 grapes

Steps

1. Make the mousse First, whip the heavy cream until soft peaks form and then chill in the refrigerator.
2. Add juice and sugar to a pot and heat until the sugar dissolves. Remove from the heat, add soaked gelatin and pour into a bowl.
3. Put the mixture from Step 2 over a bowl of ice-cold water to cool. Then add yogurt and mix well. I used a rubber spatula, but you could also use a whisk.
4. Put the bowl over ice-cold water again and this time, let it cool completely.
5. After it has cooled, add the whipped cream from Step 1 and mix quickly with a whisk. Then switch to a rubber spatula and mix well.
6. Pour into molds. The gelatin will go on top, so fill to about 60 - 70% full. Chill in the refrigerator until firm.
7. Peel the grapes, cut in half and remove the seeds. This time, I used large Kyoho grapes.
8. Make the gelatin Add the juice to a pot and heat slightly. Add soaked gelatin and dissolve.
9. Pour into a bowl. Place the bowl over ice water and let cool (If the gelatin is still hot, the mousse will melt, so make sure you let it cool).
10. When the mousse has set, drop in the grapes. I was using large Kyoho grapes, so I put in 1.5 grapes each (adjust to the size of the grapes and molds).
11. Gently pour the gelatin into the molds and chill in the refrigerator until firm.
12. All done You can dress these up with leftover grapes and mint as you like.

Story Behind this Recipe

I had delicious grapes, so I thought I would make mousse with them. This mousse is very moist, so it's fluffy and smooth, my favorite combination.
