Marshmallows of red beetroot

A sweet treat made from red beetroot. It may sound strange, but in combination with sugar, the flavours of the beetroot become very similar to blueberry or cassis.

20

g

powdered gelatine

500

g

sugar

240

g

water

60

g

egg whites, pasteurised

 pinch

 

salt

Preparation method

  • Reduce the red beet juice to 150g. This will remove the underlying flavour and enhance the sweetness.
  • Set aside, and when cool, mix with the gelatine powder.
  • Combine the water and sugar, heat to 125°C and remove from the heat. When the liquid is no longer bubbling, add the beet-gelatine solution and stir well.
  • Beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt, and continue to work the mixture as you would an Italian foam. That is, add the hot beet syrup to the beaten egg whites in a thin stream while the machine is turning slowly. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
  • Dust a sheet of grease-free paper with icing sugar and pipe drops of the beet-egg white foam onto the sheet.
  • Dust them liberally with icing sugar and allow to dry at room temperature for at least three hours, until a thin crust forms.

Serving suggestions

  • As a friandise.
  • As part of a composition, e.g. with raspberry, rhubarb, citrus fruit or chocolate components.
