STRAWBERRY CUSTARD

In a sauce pan, bring the strawberry puree to a boil. In a mixing bowl, mix the eggs yolks and sugar. Slowly mix a small portion of the hot puree to the egg yolks and sugar. Cook this mixture over a double boiler until it reaches 84°C (183°F). Strain through a sieve.

Add the hot strawberry custard in several additions to the chocolate, using a spatula, until fully incorporated. With an immersion blender, blend until smooth. Check that temperature is at 40°C (104°F). Add the whipped cream, folding with a spatula. Place in a desired mold.

GLAZED MIRROR
