1
For the blood orange sorbet, bring the water and sugar to the boil in a saucepan. Once the sugar has dissolved, simmer for 5 minutes to make a stock syrup
  • 175g of caster sugar
  • 275ml of water
2
Remove from the heat and allow to cool, then add the orange juice and the lemon juice. Chill the mixture, then churn in an ice cream machine or place in the freezer, stirring the sorbet by hand every half-hour for the first two hours to prevent crystallisation. Store in the freezer
  • 6 blood oranges
  • 1 lemon

For the blood orange mousse, pour the blood orange juice into a saucepan. Bring to the boil and reduce by half. You will need about 220ml of juice at the end

Soak the gelatine in cold water to soften. Once softened remove the gelatine from the water and squeeze any moisture out. Add this to the reduced hot orange juice, stir to dissolve and leave to cool
  • 4 sheets of gelatine
5
Whisk the 3 whole eggs and 2 egg yolks in a warmed bowl at high speed until the volume has doubled. Add the sugar a little at a time, whisking well. Add the egg mixture to the cooled orange juice and gelatine and combine
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 50g of caster sugar
6
Whisk the double cream into soft peaks and fold into the orange mixture. Pour this mixture into the ramekins and place in the fridge for an hour to firm up
  • 250ml of double cream
