Put four tablespoonsful of juice into a bowl and sprinkle the gelatine on top. Leave to soak for 5 minutes. Then dissolve over a pan of hot water. Stir the gelatine into the yolk mixture. Add the juice and grated rind.

Whip the cream and egg whites separately until stiff. Fold the cream into the fruit mixture then fold in the egg whites. Turn into a dish and allow to set for about 4 hours.

Decorate with julienne strips of orange rind blanched in boiling water for 3 minutes.
