English Lindisfarne Mead and Apple Cream Pudding

English Lindisfarne Mead and Apple Cream Pudding created by CulinaryQueen

A very old recipe from Lindisfarne, also known as The Holy Island in the county of Northumberland in North West England; this small, windswept island, accessible only by a causeway at low tide, is one of the holiest sites in England. This recipe uses two very old English ingredients - Mead and Candied Angelica, a large green herb - the stems are candied and used to decorate cakes and puddings. Anglelica can be found in good cake decorating shops. St Aidan's Winery in Lindisfarne, is the home of the world famous Lindisfarne Mead, which is used in this recipe, but any good quality mead can be used.

    This took me longer than the time stated, probably because this was my first time working with gelatin. I had the leaves, not the powder, so had to estimate on how many to use. I also think I over-whisked the egg whites as they were a bit too stiff and didn't blend as well as they should have. The mix tasted great and hopefully I used enough gelatin for it to set! Can't wait to have dessert tonight! Thanks FT! :D
