Orange segments, jelly and sorbet: three different textures from one amazing fruit.

At Bécasse we use a small hors d’oeuvres terrine mould to make the terrine, which is about 5 cm high, 5.5 cm wide and roughly 30 cm long. Try to buy one with removable sides.

Terrine

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
6 blood oranges
200ml Stock syrup
100ml water
30ml white wine
5 x 5g gelatine leaves, softened in cold water

Sobert

Quantity Ingredient
400ml freshly squeezed blood orange juice
200ml Stock syrup

Method

  1. To prepare the terrine:

    Peel the oranges and use a very sharp knife to remove the pith. Cut out the segments and lay them on a clean cloth to drain. Squeeze all the juice from the remaining orange pieces into a bowl. It should yield about 300 ml of juice, but make up any shortfall with an extra blood orange. Stir the syrup, water and wine into the juice.
  2. Squeeze the excess water from the gelatine and put it in a small saucepan with a few spoonfuls of the orange mixture. Heat gently until the gelatine has dissolved then tip it into the rest of the orange mixture and stir well.
  3. Double-line the terrine mould with cling film, leaving a generous overhang. Pour in a thin layer of jelly, around 1 cm then top with a layer of orange segments. Refrigerate until set. Continue building layers of jelly and fruit until the mould is full. Reserve a few segments to garnish. Fold the cling film over the top and set in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours. Use a knife dipped in hot water to slice the terrine into 8 portions and keep chilled until ready to serve.
