The traditional filling is silverbeet, but we've added kale and fresh herbs for fragrance and flavour. A good sprinkle of salt at the end and a squeeze of lemon are non-negotiable. Start this recipe a day ahead to rest the dough.

Method

  • 01
  • Heat creams, caster sugar, lemon rind and half the grappa and stir over low heat until combined (4-5 minutes). Increase heat to medium and cook gently until mixture comes to the boil (4-5 minutes). Squeeze excess water from gelatine, add to cream mixture and stir to dissolve, remove from heat and cool to blood temperature. Strain, add remaining grappa, stir and pour into six ½-cup-capacity dariole moulds rinsed with water. Refrigerate overnight or until set.

Heat sugar, lemon rind, cloves and ¾ cup water in a saucepan and bring to the boil over medium heat, reduce heat to low and simmer gently until reduced to ¾ cup (8-10 minutes). Drain apples, reserving liquid, add apples and half the grappa to sugar syrup, return to the boil over medium-high heat, then simmer very gently over low heat, stirring occasionally, until apples are tender and translucent (35-40 minutes), add reserved lemon juice and remaining grappa and cook until syrupy (8-10 minutes). Cool to room temperature.
