Knob of butter 

100g sugar 

150g cream (heated)

3g ground cinnamon

2g ground nutmeg

1g ground star anise

2g ground ginger


Dice up the cooking apples.

In a pan heat the butter, once the pan is hot add the apples and very gently cook them until just soft to prevent them from breaking down. Incorporate the spices and leave to cool.

In a separate pan caramelise the sugar until golden brown.

Very slowly and carefully add in the warm cream and boil for a couple of minutes.

Remove from the heat and cool slightly before combining with the cooked apple dice.

Allow mixture to cool before placing into small sphere silicone moulds and blast freezing.

Apple mousse

35g Sosa albumina

30g Sosa instangel

25g caster sugar

Mix the apple puree with the albumina, instangel and the sugar.

Whip until it becomes very spongy (like a meringue).

Add the cream and carefully mix with a rubber spatula.

Then put the mixture into a piping bag and pipe into sphere silicon mould till about half way.

Take the back of a spoon and pull some of the mixture up the side of the sphere mould.

Take your apple filling sphere from the blast freezer and place inside the apple mousse sphere.

Fill up the rest of the sphere with apple mousse and level off.

Place mould into the blast freezer.

Make the crumble and allow to cool.

Reduce apple juice for a sweet sauce. 

Remove apple mousse from the freezer and gently push a dip into the top of the sphere to create the apple core effect.

Plate to your desired taste and enjoy.
