The red fruits of Noyon!
A city in the Picardie, department Aisne, is famous for the farms that grows them. During my day trip to Noyon in late June I did not see any of them. I was looking for farms to buy directly. The local supermarket just offered some drab strawberries.
recipe for 4:
250 ml whole milk
40 g butter and some for baking dishes
1 tbsp flour
1 tsp cornstarch
150 g mixed fresh red fruits
5 tbsp icing sugar
190 C 25 - 30 min
In a casserole melt 30 g butter and add flour and starch. Make a paste and loosen it with milk, a bit at the time. Let it cool down.
Separate the eggs and beat the egg white to stiff peaks with a pinch of salt.
Use red currants, raspberries and blackberries or any other kind you mite like, strawberries will work as well.
Blitz up half of the fruit and put in the icing sugar and add the egg yolks. Pour it into the white sauce.
Now fold in the egg white and keep it fluffy.
Butter 4 ramequins or a bigger oven proof dish and fill it in. Set some whole fruits on top.
Bake and garnish with the rest of the fruits.
