First of May today!
And among the wishes for the new month I gave and I got, a good friend of mine said something funny: Be careful Yanni, he said, do not eat any flowers today because it is their special day :-)
He was right I guess and so I did not publish the recipe for this dessert today but on the 2nd of May, even though I had the dessert on the 1st.
It is a very interesting recipe as it contains one of my favorite plants, lemon verbena. I really love the aroma of it, I have made many recipes using it and I even made a ASMR video last year about it.
It is now starting to produce it's first leaves so I decided to make a dessert using them.
I flavored the Jelly with it as well as the cream for the mousse.
Light textures, I serve it in small wine glasses. I advise you to dip the spoon to the bottom so that you will take some jelly as well as some mousse in the same spoonful to feel the difference in texture between them.
I serve it with Greek yogurt.. Actually sheep yogurt, that it is a lot more tart than the usual greek style yogurt you are accustomed to. I find that its acidity cuts through the sweetness of the chocolate and goes well with the lemon juice in the jelly.
A recipe for grown ups but I feel that kids will like it as well.
Let's see what we will need:
