Categories: Desserts


5    large egg yolks

½    cup marsala wine, cream sherry, or other sweet wine

(nonalcoholic sparkling cider can be substituted)

6    tablespoons sugar

    Pinch kosher salt

2    cups assorted fresh berries

    mint leaves — for garnish

Crack eggs and separate the yolks into a stainless-steel bowl and the whites into a container to be frozen for future use. Add the marsala to the egg yolks. Place the bowl over a pot half filled with water (the water should not touch the bowl on the top) and heat the pot to form a double boiler. Beat the yolk mixture with an electric mixer (or wire whisk) until combined well and double in size. Blend in the sugar and salt and beat at high speed for about 6 to 8 minutes or until the mixture thickens and mounds. Remove from heat and prepare berries. Place 2 tablespoons of mixed berries into a large goblet. Spoon the sauce over the berries and serve immediately. Garnish with a mint leave if desired.
