Method

  1. Put the gelatine leaves in a bowl of ice-cold water for 10 mins to soften. Put the milk, lemon zest, cream and sugar in a pan then heat until it starts to bubble gently. Simmer for 2-3 mins. Remove from the heat, take the gelatine out of the water, shaking off any excess and add to the pan, stirring until the gelatine has dissolved.

  2. Leave to cool, then stir again and pour into 6 ramekins, cups or individual pudding basins. Put on a tray in the fridge overnight to set.

  3. Mix the blackberries with 1 tbsp each of lemon juice and sugar, then stir in the crème de mûre, if using.

  4. Loosen the edges of the creams with the tip of a small knife, then turn them onto serving plates, and scatter around the blackberries and sauce.

I sachet pf powdered gelatine should be about right. Sprinkle it over a small cup of cold water, then sit the cup in a pan of simmering water and leave to dissolve. Cool clightly before adding to the cream.

I can only get powder gelatine. Any suggestions as to how much to use?

I made this for a supper party, my guests thought it was wonderful, the blackberries came from our garden.
