It just so happens that the blueberry season in the UK coincides with the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina's devastating impact on the city of New Orleans, which made me think of one man who was for several days missing presumed dead. Fats Domino's biggest UK hit was Blueberry Hill, so when I found myself with some blueberries in the anniversary week I made this dish as a commemorative offering. It's a very simple and absolutely delicious dessert.
Ingredients (8 portions)
100g caster sugar (superfine sugar)
600ml goat's milk
3 gelatin sheets
|These are the juicy blueberries I used in the recipe. Because blueberries are fairly mild to taste, I always use a good amount of them in recipes so my end product boasts plenty of their delicate yet distinctive flavour.|
|In the meantime I soaked my gelatin leaves in cold water for a few minutes until they'd softened. Then I squeezed them to get rid of the excess water and set aside ready for action.|
