Pear Mousse With Ginger


Post is also available in: Italian

The Pear Mousse that I propose today, I found it among the hundreds of Japanese recipes that I have saved over the years. It is a delicate flavor dessert delicately flavored with fresh ginger and lemon to enhance the taste of Nashi pears.

Pear And Ginger Mousse

Preparation Of Pear Mousse With Ginger

The Pear Mousse, is a spoon dessert that is easy to prepare, it is delicate and light, perfect for a tasty but not too demanding end of a meal.

The recipe I had didn’t specify a specific type of pears, it just said they had to be firm and fragrant. At the supermarket I found the typical Asian Nashi pears and since they correspond perfectly to the characteristics required by the recipe, I used these but if you can’t find them, don’t worry. Nashi pears have an almost white skin, they are very delicate and their shape is more reminiscent of an apple than a pear.

To prepare this mousse, just prepare a pear compote with ginger and lemon, a well whipped cream, mix everything and let it cool and then set. To prepare it you can opt for isinglass or use agaragar, in this case the solidification will be faster, in the recipe you will find the doses for both isinglass and agar.

If you want you can make this Pear And Ginger Mousse completely vegan using agar and vegetable cream.
