Traditional English Cold Dessert: Syllabub

I've just found this recipe which I thought was very tasty. It was very popular in the 17th/18th Centuries in England (Apparently).

150ml (quarter pint) white wine
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
2 level teaspoons of finelt grated lemon rind
75g (3oz) Caster Sugar
300ml (half pint) fresh double cream (think its called Heavy Cream in USA)

Put the wine, lemon juice, rind and sugar into a bowl and leave for at least 3 hours. Next add the cream and whip (until the mixture can stand in soft peaks). Transfer to 6 sundae glasses and leave in a cool place for several hours before serving.

I hope you enjoy it,

Perhaps this could be posted in the Beverages/Wine category as well.
