4.Combine egg yolks, sugar, rind and juices in a medium heatproof bowl whisk over a medium saucepan of simmering water about 10 minutes or until thick and foamy. Remove from heat.
5.Sprinkle gelatine over the water in a small heatproof jug. Stand jug in a small saucepan of simmering water. Stir until gelatine dissolves, stir into egg yolk mixture. Cool.
6.Beat cream cheese in a large bowl with an electric mixer until smooth, beat in egg yolk mixture in four batches.

Any poached fruit will work here, but use something with a more robust flavour, stone fruits are a good choice.
