Cream flavoured with Thé des Amants green tea served with baked apples

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp (10 g) Thé des Amants Green Tea
  • 25 cl full cream milk
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 30g caster sugar
  • 2 good-sized apples (slightly tart)

Preparation

1. The apples

  • Halve the apples and remove the cores.
  • Place cut side up on a baking tray.
  • Bake at 180°C for 30 minutes.

2. The tea-flavoured cream

  • In a saucepan, heat the milk gently to 70°C (use a thermometer if you have one). Remove from the heat and add the tea leaves. Leave to infuse for 4 minutes, then strain.
  • Beat the egg yolks and sugar together until the mixture is pale and fluffy.
  • Bring the milk to the boil, then add slowly to the egg/sugar mixture while beating vigorously.
  • Transfer to a saucepan and heat gently, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. You must continue stirring and keep the heat low so that the cream doesn’t boil and the eggs don’t solidify.
  • After around 10 minutes, the pale foam present at the start will have disappeared, and the cream will have thickened.
  • Pour the cream into a dish, cool at room temperature, then refrigerate for at least 3 hours. Serve with the baked apples.
