Here are the recipes of two of our desserts which you may like to prepare at home.
Recipe for Caramelised Trinity Cream
8 Egg Yolks
75g Caster Sugar
600ml Double Cream
Bring the cream to a boil and reduce by a third, leave to chill.
Take one tablespoon of the sugar and mix with the egg yolks, add the cream and stir well. Return to the pan and cook gently, stir constantly and do not allow it to boil. Once the mixture coats the back of the spoon remove from the heat. Divide between four ramekins and refrigerate once cool.
Use the remaining sugar to cover the surface in an even layer. Caramelise the top with a blow torch or under a very hot gill.
Lemon Posset with Blackcurrant Sorbet
For the Posset:
140g/5oz Caster Sugar
500ml/18fl oz Double Cream
Juice of two large lemons
Add the sugar to the cream and bring slowly to the boil, simmer for three minutes, remove from the heat and stir in the lemon juice.
Pour into six suitable glasses or bowls, allow to cool before refrigerating for at least four hours.
500g Blackcurrant Puree
Juice of one lemon
Combine water, glucose, sugar and lemon and boil. Remove from the heat and leave to cool. Stir in the fruit puree and pass the mixture through a fine sieve. Place in an ice cream/sorbet machine and churn according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
To serve, remove the posset from the fridge, top with a ball of the sorbet, serve with shortbread or Italian biscotti.
