Rosehip & Violet Meringue

v1


This recipe and video for Rosehip & Violet Meringue comes from a dish in my new book ‘Vibrant Vegetarian’

The dish is a Sparkling Chamomile Palate Cleanser with Rosehip & Violet Meringue and Lemon Balm.

Here I’m going to share with you the recipe, technique and video for how to make this delicious, light, colourful meringue. I hope if you are interested in this you’ll check out the book,
‘Vibrant Vegetarian’, itself which is available now on iTunes for £3.99.



Rosehip & Violet Meringue

50g Hydrated Methylcellulose Slurry (see the bottom of this post for the preparation method)
50g Isomalt
20g Caster Sugar
20g Lemon Juice
80g Rosehip Syrup (Full recipe in
‘Vibrant Vegetarian’)
200g Cranberry Juice
1.2g Xanthan Gum
1g Ascorbic Acid

Combine all the ingredients except the isomalt and caster sugar.

Whip the mixture whilst slowly adding in the isomalt and caster sugar.

Whip well for at least 5 minutes until the mixture forms stiff peaks.

Spread thin onto no stick sheets.

Crush some crystallised violet and sprinkle over the meringue.

Dehydrate at 57°C for 10 Hours.

Store in an airtight container with silica.



Methylcellulose Preparation -

Top prepare the hydrated methyllcellulose slurry you will need
Methylcellulose f50 or the Texturas Brand ‘Methil’.
Available from
www.Modernist-Chef.com

6g Methylcellulose
400ml Water
 
Boil the water in the kettle then measure out 200ml of just boiled water.

Now blend the Methylcellulose into the hot water with a stick blender.

Next begin to cool this mixture over an ice bath while stirring intermittently until it is cool.

Allow this mix to sit for a couple of hours for the methyl cellulose to fully hydrate.

You can prepare this mixture in batches then keep it stored in the freeze indefinitely to defrost and use as needed.
