    Ingredients

    • 550g (1lb 4oz) strawberries, hulled
    • 25g (1oz) icing sugar
    • 30ml (2tbsp) lemon juice
    • 7g sachet powdered gelatine
    • 600ml (1pt) double cream
    • 2 large egg whites
    • Lemon thins, to serve (see above)

    Method

    • Reserve 6 small strawberries for decoration, chop the rest and place in a food processor or blender, and process to a pulp. Push the pulp through a fine-holed sieve to make a smooth purée. Stir in the icing sugar and ?lemon juice.

    • Sprinkle the gelatine over 60ml (4tbsp) hot water and stir until dissolved (if the gelatine doesn’t dissolve completely, sit the bowl in a pan of very gently simmering water for 1-2 mins). Cool for 10 mins, then gradually fold into the strawberry purée. Chill for 15 mins until just beginning to set.

    • Whip the cream until it just holds its shape, and fold in two-thirds of the purée. Whisk the egg whites until softly peaking and fold into the cream mixture. Layer the rest of the purée and cream mixture in 6 serving glasses. Chill for 2 hrs or until set. Decorate with the reserved strawberries and serve with lemon thins.
