Ingredients

  • 1 (2 pound) pineapple, halved
  • 3/8 cup plus 1 tablespoon cold water

  • 1/4 cup Kirsch
  • 3 drops green food coloring

  • 1/8 cup flaked almonds
  • 1 egg white

Scoop out pineapple flesh and freeze shells. Discard core. Blend flesh with 1/4 cup water. Pour into saucepan and cook over medium heat. Add lime juice and bring to boil. Boil for 2 minutes.

Combine gelatin and 1 tablespoon water. Dissolve this in pot with remaining water, over low heat. Add Kirsch and food coloring. Add to pineapple mixture and chill.

Place in piping bag and pipe decorative swirls on top of the mousse, covering it completely. Broil for 3 minutes. Remove and sprinkle with coconut. Broil again for another minute to toast.
