Briefly, because I really should be working - or sleeping, one or the other. Apple snow, as ManhattanAnne guessed (or knew?) is a meringue-based dessert, but the odd thing is that you don't bake it. Basically, you peel, core and slice about 5-6 flavour-full apples (I used some yummy English coxes), then put them in a pan with a dash of filtered water, put on a low heat, clamp the lid on and cook until soft (about 10-15 mins). I also added some lemon zest and grated ginger, but it's not compulsory.
While the apples are cooking, whip two egg whites until stiff peaks form. Then add about 1/2 a cup of castor sugar, slowly while you keep beating, to make the meringue.
Drain the apples in a colander, put them back in the pan and squash to break up the slices- or you could use a potato masher to make a real puree. Then just mix the two mixtures together.
That, officially is the end of the recipe. It makes a lovely, soft, cloud-like desert with soft chunks of apple hidden in the cloud. I like to make things complicated so I used our blow torch to crisp up the top so that we had a lovely contrast of textures.
Wow I feel just like a food blog. But then I'd need to be posting a really sexy photo of my finished work, and I'm just not that technically accomplished!
