Fruits au sabayon

For this months I was paired with Le Recette du jour , I am so pleased beeing paired with her as I made something which I have never made.

I always thought Sabayon was something which only real good chefs can make as it is with eggs and I always heard you had to be carefull so that the eggs don't curdle etc.............. all these disaster stories had put me off making them untill I saw them in Le recettes place, it sounded so easy to make I thought to myself I should give it a try.

And I am so glad I tried them, they are shockingly so easy to make andtaste is just so so delicous.
Just like a 5 star place dessert.

She has this wonderful array of delicous desserts in her place.
If you ant to have the original recipe check out her place here she used a variety ofother fruits than me.
I used berries as now it is really berry season here and I thought why not make use of sesonal fruits.
Before I go to the recipe I must say a huge thankyou to Teresa Cordero Cordell of Mexican American Border Cooking.

She had this wonderful competition and I won the book
I am new to Mexican Cusine but I am really looking forward for trying them as I looked through the book which I received last week and there is lots of dishes I want to try from the book.
So watch out the space here, thee is going to be a fiesta here soon :-)
Want to buy Glorias book , you will find the information here

I also received a copy of ebook, of Teressa which is called Mi Chita's Mexican Chocolate Recipes. Whick is absloutley my things as it is with lots of chocolate desserts.



1 small box of raspberries.
1 small box of black berries.
15 to 20 strawberries. Slice them
2 tbsp of grenadine ( optional)
Mix all the fruits with the grenadine ( if you are using) and divide them into 4 glasses.

Sabayon:
100 ml sweetwine, I used Banyuls
3 egg yolks
40 gm sugar
To make the sabayon you need a double boiler or a heatproof bowl over simmering water, and either a strong wrist or a handheld electric whisk. I used a electric whisk.
I don't have a double broiler so i fill up a pan with hot water and use another bowl to fit on to the pan.
Put the pan in a small heat and add the sweet wine in a glass or steel bowl and add the eggs and starts whisking. While bush whisking add the sugar and keep on whisking untill it turns white and frothy, it will take almost 8 to 10 minutes.
Pour over the fruits and serve it immidietly.
Enjoy this super delicous dessert.

Here it is a long weekend from tommorow onwards as there is some kind of religious holiday here, so I will see you all on Monday.
