Ingredients
  

  • 1 250 ml tub, double cream
  • 1 handful whole unpeeled almonds
  • 3 Eggs
  • 2 tbsp of lavender honey
  • 2 tbsp of brown sugar
  • A few red berries to decorate

Instructions
 

  • Put the cream in a heavy based saucepan and bring to a very gentle boil.
  • Crush the almonds with a pestle and mortar, or inside a freezer bag using a rolling pin.
  • You’re looking for finely crushed, not powdered.
  • Separate the eggs, keep the yolks & discard the whites.
  • Add the honey, sugar & almonds to the cream.
  • Turn down the heat and let it cool down a little before you add the egg yolk, you want to avoid scrambled eggs!
  • Leave it on low heat and stir regularly for about 10 minutes, then pour into your ramekins and put it in the fridge for a couple of hours to set.
  • Just before serving add a few crunchy almonds to the top of the ramequins and some red summer fruit for decoration.
