Part 2 - Blood Orange Mousse

Ingredients Percent (%) Grams Volume
Gelatin, powdered 0.74 3.7 2 tsp.
Water, cold 6.27 31.34 2 tsp.
Heavy cream part 1 11.23 56.13 1/4 cup
Egg yolks, sugared 4.78 23.91 1 fl. oz.
White chocolate 20.94 104.72 3.75 oz.
Blood orange juice concentrate 9.57 47.83 2 oz.
Orange extract 0.50 2.51 1/2 tsp.
Natural orange food color 0.88 4.38 3/4 tsp.
Natural red food color 1.09 5.47 1 1/4 tsp.

Egg whites, liquid EZ whip 14.25 71.74 2.5 fl. oz.
Total 100.00 500.00

  Method of Production:

  1. Sprinkle the gelatin over the water and set aside for 5 minutes to hydrate.
  2. Place the chocolate in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until finely chopped.
  3. Place Cream Part 1 in a saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Pour a small amount of the cream into the sugared egg yolks and whisk to combine. Pour the yolk mixture back into the remaining cream in the saucepan. Cook, whisking constantly, until thickened. Remove from the heat and add the bloomed gelatin, orange extract and color to the custard and stir for 30 seconds until the gelatin is dissolved. Set aside to cool for 15-30 minutes (if too hot, may melt whipped cream; if too cool, gelatin may start to set prematurely).
  4. Meanwhile, in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat the egg whites on medium high speed until they hold firm peaks. Remove the egg whites to a large bowl.
  5. In the bowl of the mixer, pour the cream (no need to wash). Whip on medium high speed until the cream holds medium firm peaks. Remove the whipped cream to the bowl with the egg whites.
  6. Fold the custard into the egg and cream mixture gently, using a rubber spatula.
  7. Scoop into piping bag and refrigerate until slightly set, about 1 hour. If the mousse is too soft, it will be difficult to pipe. If it is too firm, it will not have as smooth an appearance.
