      What a lovely cream to serve with berries. Such a wondeful and different flavour with the addition of rosewater. Although I couldnt find rosewater so I used rosewater essence, but next time will cut the essence to 1/2 tablespoon, but apart from that I followed the recipe exactly and it was wonderful. The rosewater adds such a fantastic flavour to the cream. Great recipe Fairy Nuff, will be making this again to serve with fresh berries, when we have them.
