A tasty treat for all, celebrate Memorial Day with these sous vide fruit cups. Fresh fruit and a cookie-like pecan crunchy top plus whipped cream make a fun dessert you can assemble right at the table.
For the fruit:
2 cups ripe strawberries, stemmed, washed, and quartered
2 cups fresh blueberries, stemmed and washed
1/4 cup granulated sugar
Juice of 1 lemon
Preheat the sous vide circulator to 180˚F.
Put the berries into a large bowl add the sugar and lemon juice and then toss gently to coat.
Add to a vacuum bag and seal. Submerge the pouch in the water bath and cook for about 30 minutes.
Cool completely and then refrigerate until ready to use. When ready, cut the pouch open and gently pour into a bowl.
For the cookie crumble
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 ounces unsalted butter
1 cup whole pecans, some broken
In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, dark brown sugar, salt and cinnamon. In a medium sauce pan over medium heat, melt the butter. Remove from the heat and stir in the flour mixture until small clumps form and all the butter is absorbed. Add the pecans and stir in. Pour onto a parchment lined baking tray and cool.
Divide the fruit evenly in six bowls. Divide evenly the cookie crumble and sprinkle over the fruit. Top with whipped cream and holiday sprinkles. Serve immediately
