  1. Bring the cream and sugar to boil over a medium heat and simmer for 3-5 mins then remove from heat, adding a few strands of saffron mid way through.

  2. Mix in the zest and whisk in juice until combined. Leave to cool and infuse for apx 20-30 mins.

  3. Divide between glasses, cover with cling film, refrigerate until set (preferably overnight).

Top with some chopped pistachios and fresh orange chunks for extra freshness.

Psst...don’t panic if it doesn’t set. Serve it up as a flavoured cream over some freshly cut fruit, no one needs to know 🤐🤫
