They say it’s good for kids to have to self esteem right? But what happens when they grow up and start to think they can take on the world? When they boast quietly to their friends about what they can do? Their friends call them on it, that’s what. This is what happened to me recently, after torturing my friends with tales of testing the snow egg recipe and how delicious it was, and what time I had made it in, they decided I should consider bringing it to our next party. No, no, I said, are you mad? And anyway, my Sunbeam ice cream maker has died again, for no apparent reason. Oh. Disappointment reeks. ‘Well, maybe…’, I think, I could get that Kitchenaid mixer with ice cream making attachment I’ve been dreaming about for my birthday. After all, Grandma’s lovely old Kenwood mixer is about to stop mixing any day now, plus I can’t find the dough hooks and it would be so nice to make bread at home…ah the justification.
So yes, I agreed to the madness that is bringing snow eggs to a dinner party. Saner to do it at home, but only marginally. Let me just say this. Yes, I tested this recipe under competition conditions and did it in a short period of time, but this is nigh impossible to replicate at home. Who wants to cook under that kind of pressure at home? You want to relax, have some music on, do it properly.
If you, like me, have had your ego stroked and are considering the task of snow eggs for dessert- give yourself a few days in advance to shop, prepare the components ahead of time (I’ll tell you which ones) and you will make your life easier. Let me tell you that you will still be scared about ruining the maltose tuile on top but you get to play with a blow torch so it’s worth it.

A small scoop of ice cream is placed in the centre of two meringue halves and the tuile is melted on top with a blow torch. Btw, I used glucose here instead of maltose as I had run out and it worked really well as a direct substitution.

Oh Snow Egg, you look so easy on youtube…

If you are working during the day and only have evenings to prepare, I would recommend doing the shopping 3 days before, the ice cream, granita and puree 2 days before, the vanilla custard and maltose tuiles the day before (keep in an air tight container between layers of baking paper). The meringue you should make on the day as it has a tendency to deteriorate if left around for too long- it is not a fully baked meringue, it is only poached for about 15 minutes so is still softish.
Remember, you can always just make the custard apple ice cream, which is delicious. I won’t put the recipe up as it already on several sites on the web. Just do a search for Peter Gilmore’s snow egg and you’ll find it.

    I hadn’t even heard of a snow egg before reading this. It looks like a delicious summer dessert, is it Australian? Why haven’t I come across it? Bravo to your success with it, you talked the talk but it looks like you had the goods to back it up. I am not sure I will be attempting it anytime soon though, it looks like pretty hard work. Something I tend to avoid. Maybe, this can be on the menu the next time I visit?

  2. Hi Chilli, it is indeed a labour of love…you can do a search on you tube and see Peter Gilmore putting it together. It’s one of his recipes from Quay. He varies the fruit depending on what’s in season. It gained recent fame on Masterchef.

  3. As one of the attendees of said dinner party, I am very gratefull you threw caution to the wind, and made this positively delicious dessert. It was truly exquisite!

  11. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add
    to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some
    experience with something like this. Please let me know if
    you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and
    I look forward to your new updates.

  12. hello!,I like your writing so much! share we communicate extra approximately your post on AOL?
    I need a specialist in this house to resolve my problem.
    May be that’s you! Taking a look ahead to look you.

  13. I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s
    both educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the
    head. The issue is something which not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy that I came across this during my search for something relating to
    this.

  14. First, Pinterest users should have more
    creative options to customize the home page.
    This tool (once called Pin – Clout) is very similar to Facebook Insights.
    For example, if your food business is dedicated to gourmet party appetizers your bio might be as simple as “Gourmet appetizers delivered right to your door.

  15. You have to determine whether the flour dust from the flour grinding mill will be an issue. This is important especially if there are asthmatic people in the house. The dust in the air can affect them greatly. The manual mills produce less dust compared to the electric mills. You also need to have a definite price range that you will maintain. You can get flour grinding mill for any price between $100 and $500. There are various mills in the market for you to choose from. You need to consider all the above factors before making the purchase. This way you will be assured of quality products. The mill that you buy should meet all the expectations you have. You must also ensure that you compare different mills from various manufacturers to identify the best deals. It is important that you get your products from reputable manufacturers in the industry. This ensures that you get the best quality in terms of products and services. The manufacturer should be available to give you technical assistance whenever you need it. This will reduce the delays that you experience during the operation of the mill.

It sends the flour directly into a 60 oz. flour bin. This will hold up to 10 cups ground wheat. When you’re finished with it you can pick it up with one hand and put it in the cupboard. If you don¡¯t have 11 1/2 inches of shelf clearance, you can turn the grinder housing upside down and sit it inside the grinder¡¯s flour bin making it only 8 inches high. It can grind a variety of items-wheat, oats, rice, triticale, dried pinto beans, popcorn, split peas, buckwheat, rye, millet, soybeans, and whole corn. Any item that exceeds 15% oil or moisture will gum up and block the mill. Therefore it will not grind-spices, sugar, nuts, dried fruits, flax seeds, and coffee beans. Coarsest setting makes flour with the consistency of corn meal. [b][/b]
    3. Easy reloading: During grinding of the pepper, you don¡¯t have to fill the container. Instead of chocking the container, you can partially fill the chamber and reload it again for grinding.

The crushing plant, with high flexibility, can be combined with either two-section screening system of coarse and fine crushing according to the actual requirements or three-section vibrating screen system of coarse, medium and fine crushing. So it can meet the needs of different customers to the maximum. In accordance with customers¡¯ use requirements, this series of equipment manufactured by Hongxing Machinery can be divided into standard type, closed-circuit type, and the multi-combination type the basis for introduction catering to high-end clients¡¯ development requirements.

    Sand within the spiral structure is changed, its force will also be affected. Therefore, to strengthen the beams must be dispersed from the center to the base. Only in this way can the inner spiral inward centrifugal force dispersed to the periphery of the machine. Processing spiral strengthen the twist adjustment bolts should be used the reverse fixed, so as not stuck adjustment tank told the centrifugal effect driven.

For some companies the price is indeed lower, but after-sale technical service is very bad. What you have bought is the service and device rather than a mere machine. [b][/b]
