    • Total time: 1 hour 20 minutes 60 minutes 20 minutes

    Serves: 6


    225g short grain rice
    1½ litres whole milk, plus extra if needed
    75g caster sugar
    2 broad strips lemon peel
    150-200ml double cream
    1-2 tsp rose water, or to taste
    Cooks’ Ingredients Rose Petals, to serve
    400g fresh cherries


    1. Put the rice in a large, heavy-bottomed pan, and add the milk, sugar and lemon peel. Bring to the boil, then turn the heat right down and cook, stirring from time to time, for 1 hour, or until the grains are tender. Add more milk if the mixture is getting too thick.

    2. Leave to cool, then remove the lemon. Stir in enough cream to create a consistency you like. Add the rose water to taste.

    3. Serve in bowls or glasses. Scatter rose petals on top of each one, then offer a big bowl of cherries to eat alongside.
