Dominic Chapman's glorious orange posset recipe is an exquisite pudding that's sure to win smiles at the end of a meal. This is a great kids recipe that children can help with - whether by whisking the egg whites or spooning the rhubarb into glasses. If you can't source grenadine at your local shop, raspberry cordial could be a good substitute

Method
1.
For the posset, add the orange zest and juice to a bowl. Add the sugar and stir for 1 minute to dissolve
2.
Whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks form, set aside

3.
In a separate bowl, whip the cream. As it thickens, trickle in the orange mixture. Continue whisking until stiff
Room for a little one
Teach the kids to whip their own cream and they will be eternally grateful. If there are 2 kids present, let 1 whip while the other trickles
4.
Fold the whisked egg whites into the cream, then store in a piping bag or container in the fridge until ready to use
5.
For the poached rhubarb, peel, trim and cut the rhubarb into batons - reserve the trimmings
6.
Combine the sugar, water, orange zest, rhubarb trimmings, grenadine or cordial in a pan over a medium heat
7.
Bring to the boil, then remove from the heat and leave to cool. Strain the stock syrup through a fine sieve, the liquor should be very pink in colour
8.
Add the rhubarb batons to the stock syrup. Bring to the boil, then remove from the heat and leave to cool in the liquor - the rhubarb should be tender but hold its shape
9.
Divide the rhubarb into glasses, remove the posset from the fridge and pipe or spoon over the rhubarb
