Czech Peach Mousse -- Broskvovi Krem

This Czech Peach Mousse recipe -- Broskvovi Krem -- is made with fresh fruit. It's a delightful, slightly sweet dessert that can be served chilled or frozen. Serve with peach marmalade, if desired.
**Using these proportions, feel free to substitute another fruit, such as strawberries, mango, or papaya, or your favorite combination. The result is fluffy, light, and oh, so satisfying.
Makes 6 servings of Czech Peach Mousse - Broskvovi Krem

6 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup orange-flavored liqueur, such as Cointreau
10 peeled and pitted medium peaches
1 large pasteurized egg white
2 tablespoons gelatin
2 cups heavy cream whipped with 4 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
½ teaspoon pure almond extract Small sprigs of fresh mint for garnish
In a large saucepan, place sugar, 6 tablespoons of orange-flavored liqueur and bring to a boil. Add peaches and almond extract. Cook for about 20 minutes or until fruit has broken down into pulp.
You can strain the pulp through a sieve, but I don't. Cool.
Add egg white to peach pulp and beat to a thick foam.
Heat remaining cup orange-flavored liqueur, with gelatin until it has dissolved.
Add to fruit mixture, blending thoroughly. Cool and then fold in whipped cream.
Pour into individual molds or one large mold that has been rinsed with cold water and refrigerate until set, about 3 hours.
When ready to serve, dip bottom of mold briefly (about 5 seconds) into very warm water and turn out on serving dishes or platter. Serve with peach maramalade, if desired.
