This is an SCA replica of a popular 1500s recipe. It's a fluffy, sweet white mousse served with strawberries in spiced syrup.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Whip cream and set aside.
  2. Then beat egg whites until they form soft peaks.
  3. Add egg whites to whipped cream and whisk together.
  4. Add rose water and sugar - adding a little sugar at a time. This stuff will have a consistency something like Cool-Whip, but will taste lots better.
  5. Clean strawberries and place into bowl.
  6. Mix red wine, sugar, cinnamon, and ginger. Pour mixture over strawberries and allow to marinate for an hour or so.
  7. Serve "snow" with strawberries on top and with a couple shortbread cookies on the side.
