Meadowsweet and St John’s Wort feature on this month’s news from Luzia
Herbs for Healing newsletter-july2010
Meadowsweet crème brûlée
500ml Double Cream
185g Caster sugar
2 Whole eggs
4 Egg yolks
2-3 Heads of Meadow sweet (not huge heads)
Bring the cream up to just under boiling point, In mean time mix eggs and sugar together, add the cream to the eggs and sugar, and add the meadowsweet, infuse it as long as you want for the strength, I infused for around 45mins. Pass the mixture through a fine sieve into brulee dishes and cook in a bain marie at 125 degrees for around 30mins depending on size of dishes, if in doubt if its cooked stick a thin knife in the centre if it doesn’t come out wet then its good to go. Remember it will continue to cook slightly while cooling.
