Straining the raspberries is a labor of love (consider delegating this task), but all the work is done well ahead and the results are absolutely worth the effort, guaranteed.Recipe Nutrition:Per serving: 185 calories; 4 g fat (2 g saturated fat, 1 g mono unsaturated fat); 11 mg cholesterol; 37 g carbohydrates; 4 g protein; 8 g fiber; 33 mg sodium; 229 mg potassium Nutrition Bonus: Vitamin C (45% daily value), Fiber (24% dv).Ingredients:6 cups fresh raspberries or two 12-ounce packages unsweetened frozen raspberries, thawed1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar or Splenda Granular (see Ingredient note)2 tablespoons orange juice1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin8 teaspoons dried egg whites (see Ingredient notes), reconstituted in 1/2 cup warm water according to package directions (equivalent to 4 egg whites)2/3 cup sugar1/3 cup whipping cream2 cups fresh raspberries, blueberries, blackberries and/or strawberries for garnishMint sprigs for garnish Sharing is caring! Tweet Sharecenter_img Share Directions:Place a small mixing bowl in the freezer to chill for Step 5.Puree raspberries in a food processor until smooth. Pass through a fine sieve set over a large bowl; discard seeds. Measure out 1 cup raspberry puree, whisk in confectioners’ sugar (or Splenda), cover and set aside in the refrigerator for sauce.Place orange juice in a small saucepan. Sprinkle in gelatin. Let soften for 1 minute. Place over low heat and stir until the gelatin has completely dissolved. Let stand for 5 minutes.Meanwhile, beat reconstituted egg whites in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar, beating until the meringue is stiff and glossy.Beat cream in the chilled bowl until soft peaks form.Add the melted gelatin to the remaining raspberry puree and whisk until blended. Set the bowl over a bowl of ice water and stir just until the mixture starts to thicken slightly, 5 to 10 minutes. Add one-fourth of the meringue to the raspberry puree and whisk until blended. Using a whisk, fold in the remaining meringue. With a rubber spatula, fold in the whipped cream. Scrape the mousse into a 6-cup metal bowl (or other decorative mold) or a 9-by-5-inch metal loaf pan. Cover with plastic wrap and foil and freeze until firm, at least 6 hours.To serve, fill a bowl or basin (large enough to hold the mold comfortably) with very hot water. Run a knife around the edges of the mold. Quickly dip the mold in hot water, then invert a serving platter over the top. Grasping the mold and platter, jerk downward several times. If the mousse does not release, dip in hot water again and repeat. Cut the mousse into wedges or slices. Serve with the reserved raspberry sauce and garnish each serving with a scattering of berries and a mint sprig.Substituting with Splenda: In the EatingWell Test Kitchen, sucralose is the only alternative sweetener we test with when we feel the option is appropriate. For nonbaking recipes, we use Splenda Granular (boxed, not in a packet). For baking, we use Splenda Sugar Blend for Baking, a mix of sugar and sucralose. It can be substituted in recipes (1/2 cup of the blend for each 1 cup of sugar) to reduce sugar calories by half while maintaining some of the baking properties of sugar. If you make a similar blend with half sugar and half Splenda Granular, substitute this homemade mixture cup for cup. When choosing any low- or no-calorie sweetener, be sure to check the label to make sure it is suitable for your intended use. Dried egg whites are pasteurized so this product is a wise choice in dishes that call for an uncooked meringue. They are also convenient in recipes calling for egg whites because there is no waste. Look for brands like Just Whites in the baking or natural-foods section of most supermarkets. Dried egg whites can be ordered from The King Arthur Flour Baker’s Catalogue, (800) 827-6836. A stand-up mixer makes beating egg whites easier, but a hand-held electric mixer will work fine. Share Recipe source: EatingWell.comlast_img read more

Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew hopes imminent investment heralds a new era

first_imgAlan Pardew is hopeful the imminent investment in Crystal Palace with herald a new era for the Barclays Premier League club. Press Association “The players and my team also deserve some credit to to get us in the position where we have got this kind of backing.” Parish, who helped save the club from bankruptcy in 2010, will remain in charge of the day-to-day running of Crystal Palace while a reported £50m will also be invested in the stadium. “I think the important part in the negotiations was Steve’s position,” added Pardew. “I think it was very important that the slight nuances in the game are understood by Steve and I can get a message to him which is sometimes not easy to translate to people who do not understand the Premier League. “So, he can filter through all the information that I give to the guys so they can make a sensible and judged decision. “We are making decisions which have a low-risk factor and that is something we have done well at this football cub. We have signed players at the right money, at the right time, and that is why we have such a good squad.” American businessmen Josh Harris and David Blitzer are set to purchase a reported £100million controlling stake in the Selhurst Park outfit. The deal will see the duo, who already own the NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers and the NHL’s New Jersey Devils, hold an equal 18 per cent share in the club with Steve Parish, who will remain as chairman. Speaking ahead of Palace’s Barclays Premier League clash against Stoke, Pardew said: “I have been involved to some degree with Josh and David. We have met. I see they have a passion for this football club which has grown over the last 18 months. “It goes alongside the passion the chairman has and myself for the football club, and together we hope it might embark on a new era for the football club. “Hopefully our fans – who have had a great couple of seasons – can now look forward to the future with expectation. “I look at clubs like Bolton and the current situation they are in, and I think about this football club and how a phoenix can rise, and we want to keep rising.” Pardew is approaching his one-year anniversary in charge at Palace. He guided them to an impressive 10th-place finish last season, and they are sixth ahead of their trip to Stoke on Saturday. And the former Newcastle manager revealed the investment deal was on the agenda when he agreed to take charge of Palace in January. “There was a very strong feeling that the guys would come on board,” Pardew said. “I needed to be part of that to understand what Steve Parish’s vision for the football club was. If it wasn’t that vision that he sold me, I probably would not be here, so Steve Parish deserves a lot of credit for where this football club is. last_img read more

Reports: Broward Hospital Patient was Tested for Coronavirus

first_imgA possible case of coronavirus here in South Florida recently affected emergency operations at a hospital, according to reports.Workers at Memorial Regional Hospital in Broward allegedly told at least one fire-rescue department not to bring anyone to their emergency room.Dr. Bindu Mayi, an infectious disease specialist and professor of microbiology at Nova Southeastern University, says she had heard about the potential Hollywood case from medical colleagues.“If there is a local case, it is something we [the public] should all be made aware of,” Mayi says. “The absence of information becomes conjecture and that’s a dicey thing. If there is a local case, people who are immune-suppressed may need to be more discerning about not being in large crowds or gathering where don’t know who has been exposed to what.”Memorial Regional Hospital officials would not comment on the status of the woman who arrived last Friday afternoon in their emergency room. Hospital spokeswoman Kerting Baldwin explains, “There are no confirmed cases of coronavirus at Memorial.”Hollywood Fire Rescue was informed of the situation in the emergency room. “At one point we offered to wear masks, but that was overkill because the patient suspected of coronavirus was already in isolation,” says Patrick Moore, division chief of operations at Hollywood Fire Rescue.Amanda Conwell, a spokesperson for the Pembroke Pines Police Department, says her staff was told for a brief time Friday evening not to transport anyone to Memorial until a proper quarantine was established. She adds that the action was based on information they had and did not indicate that there was a confirmed case within the county.Meanwhile, the Florida Department of Health will not comment on the possible case.State health officials explain they are concerned about creating panic or compromising patient privacy by disclosing too much information. They may use their website to inform the public about pending cases and results.“We’ve kicked it around and bounced it off leadership and we hope to have something soon,” says Brad Dalton, a spokesman for the Florida Department of Health. “You don’t want to scare people, and you want to make sure when information gets out there it’s what does the public the most good.”The number of confirmed cases in the U.S. stood at 12 on Wednesday.Tests were pending on 76 possible coronavirus cases across the country as of Wednesday. The CDC does not indicate where in the United States those tests have been conducted, although at least some of them have come from Florida.A week ago, Gov. Ron DeSantis said during a visit to Boca Raton that all tests for coronavirus in our state were sent to the CDC in Atlanta and had come back negative.South Florida hospitals say that staff from the health department have met with them in order to ensure they are properly screening and preparing for a possible coronavirus case here.Local doctors also believe it is only a matter of time before coronavirus reaches Florida.“We know we are at high risk with international travelers coming to our area,” says Dr. Ivan Gonzalez, a pediatric infectious disease doctor at Jackson Memorial and UM Health. “A lot of this is going to rely on self-reporting — awareness and education are key.”A quarantine station at Miami International Airport that is staffed by the CDC is screening international passengers flying into the region.Florida’s Department of Health says it is unclear when and where tests kits will be widely available in Florida.The virus originated in Wuhan, China. It has spread to 28 countries. There are more than 24,000 confirmed cases in China alone.Last week, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services declared coronavirus a public health emergency, imposing a mandatory quarantine for any citizen who had traveled to China’s Hubei province during the previous two weeks.In addition, planes carrying U.S. citizens who have recently been in China are only allowed to land at one of 11 designated airports, none of which are in Florida. As of Wednesday, more than 500 people have died as a result of the virus.last_img read more
