This is a real 1970s retro treat - a chilled glass of VERY sweet strawberry snow (and I mean very sweet!). It looks very pretty, and is very quick to make. If you have a savoury tooth, it might be a little too much...
I always wanted to try this recipe, but somehow never got round to it, nor to its companion, Apple Snow. Maybe I'll have to test that one next! The trick is to keep the strawberries as dry as possible, otherwise the whole edifice sinks in a wet heap.
8oz/225g ripe strawberries
1 egg white
3oz/75g sifted icing sugar
Hull the strawberries, but do not wash them (wipe if necessary!). Crush them in a large bowl, add the egg white and sugar and whisk with an electric whisk for approximately 10 minutes until it is very thick and frothy. Tip it into approximately four to six glasses – it will sink slightly, so over-fill each one. Chill for at least six hours before serving with cream.
