Jazz™ Apple fruit salad
Jazz™ Apple fruit salad with mango, melon and mint served with apple sorbet. Serves 6.
½ cup sugar
10 large mint leaves
2 Jazz™ apples unpeeled, cut into small dice approx 5mm
1 mango, cut into small dice approx 5mm
½ ripe melon, cut into small dice approx 5mm
2 teaspoons icing sugar
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 litres fresh apple juice
Fruit salad - Boil water and sugar together till dissolved, remove from heat and add mint leaves. Allow to infuse till cool, then strain & chill in the fridge.
Apple sorbet - Mix the icing sugar and lemon juice into the apple juice. Pour in a non-reactive metal dish and place in the freezer. Every half hour whisk the sorbet vigorously to break the ice crystals and create a light aerated consistency, or churn in an ice-cream maker as per machine instructions.
To serve - mix the diced fruits with the mint syrup and pour into chilled bowls. Scoop apple sorbet and arrange in the centre. Place a round slice of Jazz™ apple on each sorbet and garnish with small leaves of mint. Vanilla ice-cream also works really well with the fruit salad.
