    Cat R.'s Note:

    Stolen from Dan Lepard's Guardian cookery piece. It looks yummy, I haven't tried it though. Prep time looks long because it includes around 4 hours chill time before serving.

    Serves: 6

    Yield:

    mousses

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Stone and roughly chop plums.
    2. 2
      In a pan, place the chopped plums and water then slowly bring up to a simmer and cook for around 10 minutes. Let the mixture reduce by a third to a half.
    3. 3
      Remove from the heat and set aside.
    4. 4
      Whisk milk with 50 of the sugar, egg yolks, cornflour and vanilla. Tip into a fresh pan and bring to the boil - whisk continually.
    5. 5
      Remove from the heat then stir in the cooled plum. Set aside until cold - can put in fridge.
    6. 6
      Stir together egg whites and remaining sugar, then heat in a bowl over hot water until piping hot. Alternatively, heat in 3 short burst in the microwave on high setting, stirring every 10 seconds.
    7. 7
      Beat the egg mixture with a whisk (electric or man power) until it becomes a thick glossy meringue.
    8. 8
      Beat cream until thick.
    9. 9
      Fold the plum mixture and chopped ginger through the meringue, then gently fold through the cream.
    10. 10
      Divide between 6 containers (recipes suggests whiskey tumblers - you can use this as a size guide for choosing whichever pot you prefer) and chill for 4 hours before serving.
