Orange Shells Glace

admin's picture
  Navel oranges 9 Medium
  Sugar 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Egg yolks 6
  Whipping cream 1 Pint (About 2 Cups)
  Vanilla 2 Teaspoon
  Lemon juice/Orange flavored liqueur 2 Tablespoon
  Grated orange peel 1 Teaspoon
  Grated lemon peel 1 Teaspoon

Slice the tops off 8 of the oranges.
Using a grapefruit knife, remove sections, holding the fruit over a bowl to catch the juice.
Scoop out any remaining pulp with a spoon, then turn shells upside down to drain.
Measure 3/4 cup juice; combine with sugar in a pan and cook until the temperature reaches 220° (jelly stage) on a candy thermometer.
Place egg yolks in the top of a double boiler and slowly beat in the hot orange syrup with a portable mixer or rotary beater.
Place over hot water and beat constantly until stiff peaks form, about 7 minutes.
Remove from heat, place over cold water, and continue beating until cold.
Whip cream until stiff and fold in vanilla and lemon juice or orange-flavored liqueur, and the grated citrus peels.
Fold into yolk mixture.
Spoon mousse mixture into hollow orange shells, mounding the top.
Cover; freeze until firm.
