  • 02
  • Whisk egg yolks in an electric mixer for 5 minutes or until pale and fluffy. Combine sugar and verjuice in a small saucepan over medium-high heat and stir to dissolve, then bring to the boil and cook until syrup reaches 120C on a sugar thermometer. With motor running on high speed, add sugar syrup to egg yolks in a thin stream. Return saucepan to heat, squeeze excess water from gelatine and add to pan, stir until just melted then add to egg yolks and whisk until cold.

Combine sieved raspberry jam and 1 tbsp water in a small saucepan and simmer over medium heat for 2 minutes. Cool slightly, then brush jam over raspberries and refrigerate until required.
