Orange Flower Creation Recipe

Orange Flower Creation Recipe

Ingredients: Serves 4

4 small sprigs of redcurrants
Caster (superfine) sugar
4 oranges (or 2 ordinary oranges and 2 blood oranges)
225 g/8 oz cultivated (sweet) blackberries
90 ml/6 tbsp orange juice
10 ml/2 tsp lemon juice
60 ml/4 tbsp orange flower water

2.5 ml vanilla essence (extract)

30 ml/2 tbsp clear honey
60 ml/4 tbsp fromage frais, to serve


Dip the redcurrant sprigs in water, then roll gently in caster sugar to coat completely. Leave to dry on greaseproof (waxed) paper on a wire rack. Hold the oranges over a bowl to catch any juice and cut off all the rind. Slice the fruit and arrange in a circle on four individual serving plates (alternating the different types of orange, if using). Pile the blackberries in the centre of the rings. Add the orange juice to any juice in the bowl. Stir in the lemon juice, orange flower water and vanilla essence. Sweeten to taste with the honey. Spoon over the blackberries and oranges and leave at room temperature for at least 30 minutes. Put a spoonful of fromage frais on top of the blackberries and lay the redcurrant sprigs on top. Serve straight away.
