About this fondue recipe:
This blackberry fondue recipe is a perfect way to serve up fruit for dessert. It is accompanied by a delicious raspberry beer sauce. Try adding in blueberries or raseberries and mixing up the kind of beer used in the sauce.
1 pound ripened blackberries
1/4 cup Framboise or beer of choice
2 egg whites
1 and a 1/2 cups heavy or whipping cream
1 cup powdered sugar
3 teaspoons cornstarch
1. Blend blackberries in a food processor or blender. Filter out and discard the seeds. Set aside the blackberry puree.
2. Preheat oven to 350°F. Using parchment paper, line a baking tray.
3. In a medium bowl, mix egg whites and 1/3 cup powdered sugar. Place the bowl over a pan of hot water and beat until mixture forms hard ripples. Add mixture into a piping bag. Squeeze small amounts onto lined baking sheet. Bake until lightly crisp, about 10 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.
4. Stir 1/2 cup cream and cornstarch together in a large pot over low heat. Slowly stir in remaining cream. Then add remaining blackberry puree and 2/3 cup sugar. Stir well. Continue cooking and stirring over low heat until mixture is thickened. Add Framboise or other beer and mix well.
5. Transfer mixture in large pot into fondue pot on low-medium heat.
Serve with reserved meringues/pastries from oven.
"I recommend using a quality hefeweizen, such as Franziskaner in place of the Framboise."
Blackberries make a great dessert fondue.
