Apple Snow

Here is another firm, family, favourite…. Apple Snow.

My Nana, and Mum, both used to make this, the recipe has been handed down through the family.
It is quick and easy to make, and you will never need to worry about how long it keeps for, as it will be gone before you know it!

This is a beautiful, light, refreshing desert, great at any time of year.
This can be a simple pudding, any day of the week, or a really posh desert for a special occasion, depending how you garnish it.

It is a cross between a jelly and a mouse, with a tangy taste.

Years ago I used to entertain, a lot, dinner parties were a regular thing, and when you are serving lots of courses, this can be the perfect desert after a rich meal.

It was always a favourite with my guests, and a great favourite with my nephews.

    As a child apple snow was a ‘quick pudding’ that my mum would make. We used to have a pudding everyday including a fruit pie on Sunday. There were off course times when the pressure was on and she had no time for sponge or other cooked puddings.

    Our snow pudding was paler and very fluffy. It was made of very well whipped egg whites, and apple puree (bramley apples with sugar added), folded lightly together and put in the fridge to chill. No jelly. It was light and fluffy to eat and the name seemed to make it feel special somehow. This seems very similar.

    This looks so delicious! I have a question though…what is lime jelly? I am in the US, do we have that here?

    • Helen

      here in the UK it is like a ready mix jelly that you add hot water to to disolve, plus some cold and then let it set

    • BeaBee

      Lime Jello is same as Lime Jelly in US
