Quick hogweed seed custard pots

This quick dessert is turned into something special with the addition of a caramelised, hogweed seed sugar topping. If you prefer, you can make a proper creamy, egg custard.  

Common hogweed seeds (Heracleum sphondylium) are a wonderful wild spice that I often teach on my autumn foraging courses. A member of the umbellifer plant family, also known as Carrot family. Correct identification of this plant is essential and only use the seeds when they're dried (not fresh).
