Apple wasabi mayonnaise

Reduce apple juice to 20g and fold into the mayonnaise, then add wasabi. Season with salt and pepper.

Apple jelly

When the sugar begins to caramelize, add the Gala-apple juice. Then add cloves and bay leaf, reduce until you achieve a syrup consistency. Add the other apple juice and agar, bring to the boil and let cool, mix and strain.
