Looking for something to do with all that lovely fruit? Here’s an incredibly simple, refreshing and lovely way to make a hit with your family and friends. If you want to substitute peaches, dip them in boiling water for about 10 seconds, then submerge them in an ice bath. The peels should come off easily. Then proceed with the recipe.

Place the nectarines, sugar and lemon juice in a food processor and puree until very smooth.

Place the cold water in a small saucepan and sprinkle the gelatin over the surface. Place the pan over low heat and stir until the gelatin is dissolved. Stir the gelatin mixture and the Cointreau (if using) into the nectarine mixture and allow to cool to room temperature.

Whip the cream until it forms soft peaks. Fold the cream into the nectarine mixture. Spoon the mousse into stemmed glasses, pretty dessert bowls or individual shot glasses layered with a few berries. Tuck a berry or two into the surface. Chill for at least 2 hours.

Garnish with slices of nectarine, a little dollop of additional whipped cream if you like and mint leaves.
