Mock-Beer Apple Jello For Father's Day

This is a sweet jelly dessert that's made to look like a mug of beer. It combines apple jelly and lemon meringue mousse. Say cheers to Dad!

Ingredients: 4 servings

For the apple jelly:
100% apple juice
400 ml
Sugar
40 g
○ Gelatin
7 g
○ Water
3 tablespoons
For the lemon meringue mousse:
Egg whites
2
Sugar
60 g
Lemon juice
2 teaspoons
◎ Gelatin
a bit less than 2 teaspoons
◎ Water
4 teaspoons

Steps

1. Start by making the apple jelly. Combine the ○ ingredients, and leave the gelatin to soften (about 10 minutes).
2. Put the apple juice in a pan and warm it up.
3. Add the softened gelatin from Step 1 into the warmed apple juice.
4. Mix well to dissolve the gelatin completely.
5. Fill a bowl with ice water, and suspend the bowl of apple jelly over it to cool it down. If it thickens slightly, it's good! ※ Stir with a spatula as it cools.
6. Pour the cooled jelly into mugs, and chill until set in the refrigerator.
7. Next, make the lemon meringue mousse. Combine the ◎ ingredients, and soften the gelatin (about 10 minutes).
8. Add lemon juice to the mix. Microwave for about 15 seconds at 600w and dissolve the gelatin.
9. Put the egg whites in a clean bowl, and start beating them with a handheld mixer. Add 2 pinches of the sugar, and beat at high speed.
10. When the egg whites are whipped to the point where soft peaks have formed, add the rest of the sugar.
11. Keep beating until the meringue is shiny.
12. Beat at low speed to finish, to make sure the meringue is very fine in texture. ※ If stiff peaks form, the meringue is done!
13. Next, add the gelatin liquid from Step 8.
14. Beat it in evenly.
15. Mound the Step 14 meringue on top of the Step 5 apple jelly. Put the mugs back in the refrigerator until set, and they're done.
16. If you serve these with some nuts on the side, they might just look like real beer. If your Dad like sweet things, he's sure to love this.

Story Behind this Recipe

I went to a certain pastry shop the other day to buy some cream puffs. And what do you know - they were selling jellies that looked just like beer!
I didn't buy the jelly, but I recreated it just by using my imagination!
I uploaded it just in time for Father's Day!
