How to make custard apple mousse:
First, open the fruit, separate the pulp and peel. Place the custard apple pulp in a blender together with the cream and condensed milk and slowly pulse for 5 minutes or until it becomes a smooth mixture.
Tip: The stone will come out easily if your custard apple is well ripe.
Pass the mixture through a strainer and squeeze it well with a spoon, to remove as much liquid as possible and filter the small pieces of pulp. If the mixture is still too thick, return it to the blender, blend again and go back through a strainer. Put it in a bowl.
Hydrate the gelatin according to the instructions on the packet. Separate the yolks from the whites and beat the whites in the snow until firm. Place the egg yolks and gelatin in the mixture of fruit, sour cream and condensed milk and mix well.
Finally, mix the beaten egg whites in the custard apple mousse, very delicately so as not to lose air and get a very light and sandy mousse. Set aside in the refrigerator for 4 hours and serve with a sprig of mint or caramel sauce. Bon Appetit and tell in the comments what you think of this recipe with the custard apple!
