DIRECTIONS

  • In a small pot, heat the strawberries and syrup. Sprinkle the gelatin over the strawberries and stir until the gelatin is dissolved. Remove from heat and cool.
  • Put egg whites in a medium sized bowl and beat with an electric mixer until frothy. Add the sugar a little at a time while continuing to beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks.
  • In a separate larger bowl, beat the whipping cream until stiff peaks form.
  • Place the cooled strawberry mixture in a blender and blend. Add about 10 mint leaves and 10 basil leaves and blend. Adjust to taste.
  • Pour half the strawberry/herb mixture and half the egg whites into the whipped cream and fold together. Pour the rest of the strawberries and egg whites in and fold.
  • Ladle the mousse into serving dishes and chill before serving, about one hour. A mint leaf makes a nice garnish.
