Andy McFadden’s  Lemon Posset with Rhubarb Compote & Vanilla

Serves 4

Ingredients

For the lemon posset
550ml double cream
100g sugar
zest of 4 lemons
125ml lemon juice

For the rhubarb compote
250g rhubarb
80g icing sugar
½ orange, zest and juice

For the vanilla Chantilly
200ml cream
10g icing sugar
½ vanilla pod

To finish
1 lemon
1 lime
1 orange
dried rose petals, crushed

Method
To make the posset, combine the cream, sugar and zest and bring to the boil in a heavy based saucepan. Boil for 3 minutes. Allow to cool, then add the juice and whisk lightly. Pour into the moulds/glasses and allow to set for at least 30 minutes.

For the compote, put everything into a pan and warm gently until the sugar has completely melted. Allow to cool.

For the Chantilly, split the vanilla pod, scrape the seeds and add to the cream and sugar. In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream, sugar and vanilla together with a whisk until soft peaks form.

To assemble, spoon the rhubarb compote on to the possets

Carefully spoon or pipe in the Chantilly and finish with some grated lemon, lime and orange zest and some of the crushed rose petals.
