What about some exotic/unusual sorbet (could do several flavours in gorgeous colours) with some very special biscuits or chocs (the kind you get at gourmet/specialty choc shops).

Where does dh stand on natural yog?

If it's a positive then a tin of peaches/apricots, split into nice glasses, mix natural yog with a packet of gingernuts, crushed, add a bit of honey if you need it sweeter, put over the peaches and sprinkle ground ginger on top. Yum.

or this - i love plums meself

JANEITEluddite Sun 01-Nov-09 14:57:09

If you like plums, do Nigella's baked plums with Barbados cream - bloomin lovely. If you really don't want cream, you can make the Barbados cream with just yoghurt, or the plums are lovely on top of homemade rice pudding too.

AlaskaNebraska Sun 01-Nov-09 14:57:48

wtf is barbados cream

CybilLiberty Sun 01-Nov-09 14:57:50

We call it palvulva and now I can;t say it the proper way

JANEITEluddite Sun 01-Nov-09 14:58:45

Cream and yoghurt, whipped, sprinkled with a layer of brown sugar and left to go all toffee-ish. Trust me; it's fab.

MrsBadger Sun 01-Nov-09 15:06:03
