Apple Cider Sabayon Makes 3 cups

For best results, when setting sabayon over simmering water in step 2
choose a bowl that just fits inside the pot.

1/4 cup sugar 4 large egg yolks
1/2 cup sparkling apple cider 2 tbls. Calvados, ( a french apple
brandy- regular brandy can be substituted) 1/4 cup heavy cream (1/2 cup

Fill a medium stockpot a quarter of the way full with water. Bring to a
boil, then reduce heat and let simmer. Fill a large bowl with ice water;
set aside. Combine sugar and egg yolks in bowl of an electric mixer fitted
with paddle attachment, and beat until mixture is pale and has a thick
consistency, about 2 to 3 minutes. Scrape down sides of bowl with rubber
spatula one time while beating. Add cider and Calvados,and beat for 2 more
minutes Transfer the yolk mixture to a large metal bowk, and set over
simmering water. Whisk together for 6 to 8 minutes, until the sabayon
thickens and is fluffy and slightly stiff. The sabayon should begin to look
satiny and start sticking to the bowl slightly. The air bubles will become
very fine, instead of large and loose. Set bowl in ice water bath. Continue
whisking sabayon untl chilled, about 3 minutes. Whip the cream to medium
stiff peaks, and fold into chilled sabayon. The sabayon can be stored in
refrigerator for up to 24 hours.
