Still trying to think what you would like for Christmas? Well my very favourite Christmas present from three years ago is definitely my ice-cream maker; it’s a Cuisinart, simple to use, and makes wonderful ice creams and sorbets, from strawberry and balsamic to plum and earl grey tea! Making ice cream is a great way to use up surpluses of garden fruit, so satisfying and delicious.
This frozen yoghurt recipe was given to me by a friend in America and is a real winner and a great dessert to get in the freezer for Christmas, here I serve it with some shortbread biscuits flavoured with lavender but it’s fabulous with any poached fruit or berries. Use good Greek yoghurt, I use yoghurt from Marybelle, a wonderful dairy in Suffolk producing the very best Greek style yoghurt and who has supplied us for years. I have tried with soya yoghurt too but the result was rather grainy.
