Method

  • First prepare the jelly by placing the lemongrass, anise pods and sugar into a blender and mixing until it looks like fine sugar.
  • Put the water in a pan and slowly bring to boil.
  • Simmer for 2 minutes, add the soaked gelatine and then strain.
  • This is now liquid jelly. Pour it into individual serving dishes about ¼” thick and then place into the fridge to set.
  • Posset:
  • Place the zest and juice of the lemons in a pan and mix with the cream, sugar and lemon verbena.
  • Heat gently and stir occasionally until the mixture is thickened, this takes about 5-6 minutes.
  • Strain out the verbena and pour it into a bowl.
  • Let it cool and put the fridge to set.
  • Dress the fruits attractively on the jelly and garnish with a good spoonful of the lemon verbena posset on one side, then serve.
