Kiwi

This fruit's emerald green pulp is its most outstanding feature. Sweet-tart in flavor, our Kiwi puree possesses both the fruit’s appealing visual characteristics and distinctive clean flavor. Small black seeds enhance its color further. This puree is a showstopper when presented on a white plate or in these easy recipes for soups, sauces, desserts, and mixed drinks!

Preparation time: 1.5 hours
Source: David Katz, Consulting Chef

For the sponge and soak:
    • 6 eggs
    • 5 oz. granulated sugar
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 6 oz. cake flour, sifted
    • 2 oz. melted butter

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 400° F.
2. Combine the eggs, sugar and salt in the bowl of a mixer. Heat over simmering water, whipping constantly until 120° F. is reached. Transfer the bowl to the mixer and whip at high speed until very light (4X volume).
3. For best result fold in the sifted flour in a steady stream. Fold in melted butter in a steady stream and pour batter into a buttered, floured 12" x 18" sheet pan. Bake until a cake tester comes out of the center cleanly, then cool.
4. Cut the cake into 3 equal sheets layer with the mousse. Optional: Soak cake with a rum/simple syrup before layering mousse.


For the mousse:
    • 12 oz. whipping cream
    • 1 tbsp. pectin powder
    • 4 oz. granulated sugar
    • 3 egg whites
    • 10 oz. The Perfect Purée Kiwi,  thawed and strained

Method:
1. Whip the cream to medium peaks and set aside.
2. Combine the pectin powder, sugar and egg whites in a mixer bowl. Heat to a safe temperature (140° F.) over simmering water, whipping constantly. Transfer the bowl to a mixer and whip at high speed until the meringue reaches room temperature.
3. Fold strained Kiwi puree into the whipped cream, gently. Immediately fold this mixture into the meringue.
4. Place the mousse in refrigeration for at least one hour before layering the cake.


To finish the cake:
    • 2 fresh kiwis
    • 10 fresh large strawberries

Method:
1. Peel and slice the kiwis into thin rounds. Slice the strawberries lengthwise.
2. Layer the sponge with two equal layers of chilled mousse, reserving enough mousse to cover the top of the cake with a thin layer. Trim the sides of the cake with a bread knife before topping.
3. Top the cake with stripes of shingled strawberry and kiwi slices on a 45° angle to the rectangular cake.
4. Chill overnight.
