250ml orange juice

110g caster sugar

70ml Grand Marnier

water to cover

300ml whipping cream

1-2tsp Nutellla (or sweetened Chestnut cream if you can find it)

Wash fruit, cut and remove stones. Cut into bite size pieces. Place in a saucepan with orange juice, sugar, Grand Marnier and water to cover.

Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally, until soft. 15-25 minutes.

Remove fruit with a slotted spoon and set aside in a bowl. Turn up the heat and boil poaching liquid to reduce by half. Set aside to cool.

Whip 250ml of cream until it forms firm peaks. Add the remaining 50ml to the Nutella and mix together. Then add this mix to the whipped cream. Place in a piping bag with star nozzle.

Divide the fruit into 4 serving glassed and then add poaching liquor. Stir to remove air bubbles. Leave until cold.
