“WHIPT” SYLLABUB January 21, 2008

Filed under: Chicken Recipes — quotes @ 8:44 pm

Serves 4-6

3 tablespoons dark rum or Cognac

2 tablespoons sugar

Grated rind and juice of 1 lemon

1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

1 cup (1/2-pint) heavy cream

Sprigs fresh rosemary (optional)

Sweetmeats (see note) or stewed fruits

In large bowl, with mixer at medium speed, beat rum, sugar and lemon rind. Gradually add heavy cream, beating constantly until cream forms soft peaks. (Do not overbeat.) Cover and refrigerate until serving time.

When ready to serve, if liquids have separated, beat by hand to re-incorporate. Serve Syllabub in small cordial glasses, garnished with a rosemary sprig. Accompany with sweetmeats. (By the way, do you know what a sweetmeat is? It’s any dainty little confection such as stuffed dates, chocolate truffles, sugared apricots and pears, or even candied watermelon rind.)
