Begin by making the sorrel granita. Blitz the stock syrup and sorrel in a blender until smooth, then pass through a fine sieve into a shallow container. Taste the mixture and add a little salt and fresh lime juice to taste, then place in the freezer until set. Once frozen scrape with a fork to create a crumbly texture, then return the granita to the freezer until ready to serve

  • 100g of sugar
  • 5 egg yolks

  • 140ml of double cream
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 5g of sugar
