Apple Snow is a light, frothy dessert which can be served with sponge fingers or biscuits. It is inexpensive and easy to make.
1 lb. cooking apples rind of
1 tablespoons water
4 oz. castor sugar
2 egg whites
Preheat the oven to fairly hot 375°F (Gas Mark 5, 190°C).
Core the apples and, with a sharp knife, slit the skin round the centre. Place the apples in a fireproof dish with the lemon rind and 2 tablespoons of water. Bake until the apples are soft. This will take about 1 hour.
Discard the lemon peel. Allow the apples to cool, remove the skins and rub through a sieve.
Whisk the egg whites until they are frothy. Add the sugar a little at a time and beat until the mixture stands up in peaks when the whisk is removed. Gradually add the apple pulp, beating until it is thoroughly mixed with the egg white. Taste and add more sugar if necessary. Serve cold.
