Strawberries with set vanilla yoghurt and sorrel

PT2H

1
For the jelly, combine the strawberries, dessert wine, icing sugar, vanilla pod (seeds only) and thyme into a bowl and heat over a saucepan of simmering water
  • 800g of strawberries
  • 50ml of dessert wine
  • 1 vanilla pod, split and seeds scraped
  • 100g of icing sugar
  • 1 sprig of fresh thyme
2
Gently cook until the fruit breaks down slightly and results in a clear, intense, fresh tasting strawberry soup. If the contents get too hot, it will go cloudy so ensure it stays a consistent temperature. Pass this mixture through a muslin cloth and set aside
3
Stir the softened gelatine through the soup mixture and allow to cool. Once cool, pour the contents into a rectangular plastic container and leave to set in the fridge
  • 3 gelatine leaves
4
For the purée, cook the strawberries in a saucepan over a medium heat for approximately 10 minutes. In this time the moisture will evaporate, leaving you with a strawberry sauce after the fruit has broken down
  • 800g of strawberries, hulled and washed
5
While still warm, add to a blender and process until smooth, transfer to a piping bag with a 2cm nozzle and store in the fridge
6
For the set yoghurt, combine the milk, cream, vanilla (seeds only) and sugar in a large saucepan. Heat the mixture until it has nearly come to the boil, then remove from the heat and add the gelatine, stirring to dissolve
  • 300ml of whole milk
  • 300ml of double cream
  • 2 vanilla pods, split and seeds scraped
  • 250g of caster sugar
  • 4 gelatine leaves
7
Once the mixture has cooled slightly, pass through a fine strainer into the yoghurt and stir through thoroughly. Pour the mixture into a separate rectangular plastic tub and set in the fridge for a minimum of 4 hours
  • 1000g of Greek yoghurt
8
Using a hot knife, cut the strawberry jelly into cubes and arrange on a plate. Quenelle the yoghurt with a hot spoon and add to the plate alongside the jelly
9
Cut the fresh strawberries into wedges and place in between the yoghurt and jelly. Pipe the strawberry purée in between the other elements. Lastly, scatter over clusters of crunchy granola for texture and some sorrel leaves
  • 200g of strawberries, washed and hulled
  • 100g of granola
  • sorrel leaves
