Preparation method

  • Step 1: First, make the milk marshmallow mixture. Soak the horseradish in 100g of the milk at approximately 60°C. Strain the milk.
  • Put the remaining 200g milk in the freezer and chill to 3°C.
  • Soak the gelatine in cold water, then dissolve it in the warm liquid and transfer to a planet mixer.
  • Beat for approximately one minute until fluffy, and then add the cold milk and beat until very fluffy.
  • Spread the mixture onto a silicone sheet to an approximate thickness of 4mm. Set in the refrigerator to stiffen.
  • When stiff, punch out circles of different sizes from the mixture and place in an irregular pattern on a clean silicone sheet.
  • Step 2: Mix the cucumber juice with the mirin.
  • Place 200g of the cucumber juice in the refrigerator or freezer and make sure that the temperature is exactly 3°C.
  • Gently heat the rest of the cucumber juice and dissolve the soaked gelatine leaves in it.
  • Beat in the planet mixer until fluffy, for approximately one minute, and add the rest of the juice at 3°C all at once.
  • Keep beating until stiff peaks form.
  • Spread the cucumber mass over the prepared milk-horseradish marshmallows.
  • Place in the refrigerator to harden.
  • Cut to size and use as desired.
