Bramble Mousse
Light and fresh, with enough cream to make it indulgent, this dessert is perfect anytime of the year that fresh fruit is available. Traditionally in Ireland, bramble mousse is based on freshly foraged blackberries from the bramble (hence the name). This recipe works well for any fruit in season at the time, whether strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, rhubarb, or even stone fruit like peaches though freshly picked fruit gives the best flavor.  A mousse is a French word that means lather/foam and incorporating air to make it light. In this recipe, air is incorporated into heavy whipping cream and egg whites to give a light texture. Gelatin sets this mousse so that it will not separate and will keep its even texture. In this version, I used blackberries for the mousse with a lavender whipped cream for garnish.

"Theo Chocolate in Seattle is the only organic, fair-trade, beans-to-bar chocolate made in the United States. It’s exceptionally good, too, and I’m not just saying that because I’m a part owner! If you can’t find it for this recipe, substitute a 70 percent cacao dark chocolate you know and love." — Tom Douglas

Chocolate Mousse Pie
I am including this pie for my brother, who requested this dessert for every family event from the time he was tiny until he entered his 20s and lost his taste for sweets (a strange, inexplicable event in our family that I feel validates my childhood taunting that he was adopted). If you feel like a milk chocolate mousse, substitute milk chocolate for the bittersweet.  Click here to see Pick-Up-and-Go Pies.
