Sugar Green Apple

Boil the isomalt into a cooking pan until it reaches to 160°C. Use gin to mix the colour powder together and put it into the isomalt. Keep boiling the isomalt until the temperature up to 175°C. Pour it on a silpat and let it cool down until thicken. Use a sugar pump to blow it to form an apple shape. Place the sugar apple into a plastic box with lid until use.

 

Green apple espuma

Mix the cream, apple juice, honey, calvados and citric acid together. Place it into the espuma gun and let it rest in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Fill the espuma into the sugar green apple.

 

Ice cream

Mix together the cream and milk in a saucepan. Split the vanilla pod and scrape the seeds into the cream. Put the pan over the heat and bring it to boil. When heating the cream mixture, whisk the egg yolks and sugar until it forms thick ribbon. Pour the cream into the egg mixture and stir it until well blended. Cook it in a bowl over a pan of simmering water. Keep stirring it until the custard reaches 82°C. Sieve the whole mixture and place it into a batch freezer until it is thicken and increased in volume. Pour the ice cream into a container which has been already kept in the freezer to guarantee that the ice cream do not melt once in the container.
