As a mother, I have a daily routine focused on children. One of these daily activities involves packing their lunch on the way to school. And sometimes, instead of stuffing their bread with jam and wrapping it up like a lunch sandwich, I like to move things a bit.
I have to thank the Japanese brothers for this establishment because now instead of a regular sandwich with bread and ham or jam, I can prepare something new for kids, fruit sandwiches!
What Are Fruit Sandwiches?
Simply put, a sandwich full of fresh fruit and whipped cream between two slices of Japanese shokunin bread. While the bread is fluffy, pillowy, and everything, a filling that steals the show.
How Do I Make Cream Sandwiches, Fresh Fruits?
Ingredients are very easy to find. All you need is Japanese milk bread, strawberries, kiwi, some berries, peeled cream, and hand cream.
• Remove the contents of the grass.
• Cut off both ends and remove the skin of the kiwi.
• Cut off both ends of the orange navel. Delete page.
Making Whipped Cream
• Prepare a large bowl of ice water and place a bowl in the middle of a large bowl to keep cool. Make sure the container is clean and dry. Add the heavy cream and start beating at a slow speed.
• If you are upset, add sugar and rum (if you use them) and start beating at medium speed.
• The cream will be as thick as you beat.
• When you lift the whisk from the cream and point upwards, remove the container from the ice bath and switch to whisk by hand. Whisk until you get the right consistency. Check the consistency of the whipped cream as you whisk. It should be broadcast but not run because it runs between sandwiches.
• Now coat the whipped cream on both sides of the sandwich loaf. If there is any whipped cream leftover, you can soak your fruit or make Fruit Parfait.
• Only on one side of sandwich bread, align the fruit. I plan to cut the sandwich diagonally. Think carefully about how you want to show your cross-section. I recommend taking a photo of the fruit preparation and not changing the shape of the sandwich.
• Add whipped cream to fill any gap between the fruits.
• Place the second piece of sandwich on top of the fruit, looking down at the side of the peeled cream.
• Prepare plastic wrap, large enough to wrap the sandwich firmly on all four sides. Remember, do not change the shape of the sandwich.
• Mark the opposite part with a pen on top of the plastic wrap.
• Place sandwiches between plates and refrigerate for at least an hour (overnight). In Japan, putting weight on a sandwich is a common practice before cutting it in half.
• Open a plastic sandwich and cut the sandwich in half diagonally with a clean knife. Keep it closed (Do not open the sandwich to show the opposite part yet). Clean the knife with a hot wet towel before each cut.
• Slightly press the sandwich and cut 4 ends.
• Now the cross-section is being revealed for the first time!
Serve immediately. If you plan to transfer the sandwich, make sure you keep it cool at all times.
