    lemon-mousse-citron

    Lemon Mousse with “Cordiale al Cedro Tassoni” sauce

    Lemon mousse

    Prepare a meringue with

    • 195g glucose (with 100g water)+50g granulated sugar, heat to 121°C and gradually pour onto
    • 210g egg white + 6g di albumen

    Meanwhile heat the juice of half a lemon (approx. 150g) and leave to infuse with

    • 3g finely grated lemon zest, leave to infuse. Filter and add
    • 2 leaves of fish gelatine

    Combine the meringue with the gelatine lemon juice and finish with

    • 90g semi-whipped cream

    For the lemon shaped mould:

    • 1.5kg water
    • 1.6kg sugar
    • 1kg gold gelatine leaves

    Soak the gelatine in water. Combine the water and sugar and melt over a moderate heat. Then squeeze the water out of the gelatine and add to the water and sugar syrup.
    In a half-size gastronorm pan pour a layer of jelly 1 cm high. Leave to set.

    Remove the pan from the fridge and pour a thin layer of jelly, which will be used to make the lemons adhere.

    Arrange the lemons in an orderly way, keeping them well spaced apart (try to use only the most perfect), and place the pan in the fridge again until the lemons adhere to the jelly.
    Once well cooled, pour the remaining jelly until the lemons are almost completely covered, leaving a hole on top for pouring the chocolate inside.

    Place the pan in the fridge and leave to set (TWO HOURS WILL BE NEEDED). With a toothpick pierce the lemons and delicately remove them from the mould. Cut them up and lay them on the work table.
    Meanwhile temper the white chocolate.

    Melt the white chocolate in the microwave and bring to about 45°C. Then cool it over a bowl of water and ice, mixing it gently with a spatula without incorporating air and bring it to 29°C.

    Pour the tempered chocolate into the moulds, twirl them around and overturn to remove any excess chocolate. Leave upside down for a few minutes and then turn upright. Cool a little and then very carefully remove from the moulds. The layer should be as thin as possible, particularly on the top, and thicker on the sides.

    Assembly
    Fill the lemon shells with the previously prepared mousse up to a third. Then add the lemon jelly using a piping bag and finally fill the shell with more lemon mousse. Keeping the hole on top, leave in the fridge until the mousse has set.

    Turn over and spray them with yellow cocoa butter.
