Carrigeen Moss Pudding

    1 hour 5 min

    I first made this in my A-level Home Economics class - sometimes I get a craving to make it again. Usually in the summer! It's a very smooth solid dessert. I like to make it in individual ramekins and serve with fresh raspberries and cream. I buy the seaweed in a health shop in Donegal.

    Serves: 4 

    • 1 tablespoon Carrigeen moss, rinsed and dried
    • 450 ml semi-skimmed milk
    • 1 vanilla pod

    • 1 or 2 tablespoons caster sugar
    • 1 (284ml) pot of double cream

    Prep:45min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:1hr5min 

    1. Pour the milk into a heavy based saucepan and warm over a gentle heat.
    2. Scrap the vanilla seeds into the milk and add the pod for extra flavour.
    3. Add the moss and bring to a boil.
    4. Lower the heat and simmer gently for 10 minutes.
    5. In a small bowl, whisk the egg yolk and sugar together. Add the cream and mix thoroughly for a few minutes.
    6. Pour the milk mixture through a sieve and gently push trough as much of the jelly from the seaweed as you can.
    7. Gently stir the milk mixture into the cream mixture. Pour into 4 individual ramekins and place in the fridge to firm up, about 30 minutes.
    8. Serve chilled with seasonal fruit.
