SET LEMON CREAM WITH PEACH, BLUEBERRY & AMARETTI
600ml cream 150g sugar zest and juice of 2 lemons
2 peaches, stoned and diced
1 punnet blueberries
6 amaretti biscuits (recipe follows, or use good-quality
store-bought) bergamot leaves (optional)
Combine the cream and sugar in a heavy-based saucepan and bring to the boil. As soon as it reaches boiling point, add the lemon zest and juice. Stir, then bring back to the boil for 10 seconds. Remove from the heat and strain through a fine sieve. Pour the mixture into individual serving glasses and refrigerate overnight to set.
Remove the set lemon creams from the fridge just before you want to serve. Divide the diced peach among the serving glasses and top with the blueberries. Cut or crumble the amaretti biscuits into small pieces and scatter over the top. Garnish with bergamot leaves, if using, and serve immediately.
One of the defining features of Italian food is using what is fresh and delicious close to your home or region at that moment.
