Berries with Orange Sabayon
Serving Size : 4
Mixed berries- I use blueberries, raspberries and strawberries.
3 tablespoons sugar
7 whole egg yolks
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon orange zest
1 teaspoon lemon zest
2 tablespoons orange liqueur — such as Grand Marnier OR a few drops of orange extract
Whisk the sugar and egg yolks in a large metal mixing bowl until frothy. Set the bowl over a pot of simmering water (to create a double-boiler) and whisk until the yolks become pale yellow in color.
Continue to whisk over low to medium heat until the mixture begins to thicken, about 10 minutes. Add the juices and zests and continue to whisk so the sauce thickens back up again. Add the liqueur and whisk until incorporated and the sabayon is light, fluffy and has good volume, 2 minutes longer.
