Lime-Dulce de leite Mousse
I usually make a variation of this recipe for tarts but I neither had time to make a crust or the Maria cookies that I usually use to make the crust. So I made a mousse instead. There are only three ingredients for this Mousse; limes, sweetened condensed milk, and heavy cream. The sweetened condensed milk was old and turned into dulce de leite. I'm usually stoked when this happens and just dig in and open a new can. I however did not have a new can so I had to make do with the dulce de leite. You can make this recipe with either dulce de leite or the sweetened condensed milk. If you want to make dulce de leite you just have to put a can of sweetened condensed milk in a pan with boiling water. The water has to cover the can. you boil for about an hour and then you MUST wait till it is totally cooled to open the can. This is super dangerous and I have had cans explode before, so I don't really recommend it, but it does work. I think the dulce de leite made it richer.
- juice of 4 limes
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk
- 2 cups heavy cream
- whip the heavy cream until it peaks
- in a medium sized bowl mix the sweetened condensed milk and the lime juice
- add the lime juice mixture to the heavy cream and mix on medium spead for about 2 minutes
- put in a glass bowl and let chill for a couple hours. I garnished with caramelized lemon zest.
On Saturday we had a feast. It was amazing. Lost of good food and good company provided thanks to John the cook. I tried getting some recipes but when he started telling me to glaze the garlic bulbs and then place 20 garlic bulbs stretigically on the goat meat without making the holes too big, he totally lost me. I decided to not bug with with questions and just enjoy my meal.
