When was the last time you bought a quarter of sweets? You were probably about nine years old, your pocket money just stretching to a bag of rhubarb and custards. The tinkle as the shopkeeper tipped them onto the scales and the eyes-shut hope that you might get more than was strictly a quarter. And you ate them all on the day, because you couldn’t get enough of that sugary taste. You probably couldn’t manage a whole bag now as adults’ tastebuds change – you learn to appreciate depths of flavour and better-quality treats.

That’s why herbs and flowers work so well in desserts. Adding rosemary to redcurrants, thyme to strawberry or basil to cherry brings out a taste in the fruit that you never quite realised was there. They add a slightly savoury twist that will turn a conventional pudding into an unusual and intriguing treat.
