Ok so my soft spot is for icecream. I just love it. My boss has recently let me borrow an icecream machine so I am in heaven, and so is The Chef with all this icecream I’ve been churning.

The reason I’m really loving making my own is that I have control over what’s in it. At least I know it doesn’t have colours, flavours and all sorts of stabilisers and ‘fluffy stuff’.This recipe does use cream and sugar, but we eat a very nutritious diet so having a little treat such as this every now and again is not the end of the world!

Tangelo’s are delicious, and although they are a winter fruit they evoke feelings of summer for me as they are sweet, zingy and aromatic. I would describe them as a cross between a mandarin-orange-apple.
