Enjoy a flute of bubbling Salted Lychee Höpt with this panna cotta-style dessert.
- Soften the gelatine in the water for 5 minutes.
- Place the cream, milk, sugar, grated orange rind, star anise and five-spice powder in a saucepan and slowly bring to the boil. Whisk the gelatine into the hot milk mixture. Remove from the heat and cool. Add the essence, if using.
- Carefully skim off any air bubbles from the top of the orange mixture. Strain into 6 Chinese teacups or small moulds. Refrigerate, until set.
