These are flavours which are just made to go together. They’re fragrant and exotic and generally a delicious combination. Cardamom is one of my favourite spices.
I do love a no-churn ice cream recipe too, they’re always so quick and easy to whip up (no pun intended). There’s usually a tub of some flavour or another stashed in my freezer in case of dessert ’emergencies’. And yes, a dessert emergency is totally a thing!
150g, drained tinned apricots (in juice not syrup)
1 tbsp honey
1/2-1 tsp ground cardamom (depending on your own taste but remember that the flavour will dull with freezing)
25g toasted shelled pistachios (roughly chopped)
300ml double cream
175g condensed milk
Blend the drained apricots and the honey to leave you with a smooth puree.
Whip together the cream, condensed milk and cardamom until the mixture holds soft peaks.
Fold the chopped pistachios into the cream and then gently ripple through the apricot puree. Transfer the ice cream to a freezer proof tub and freeze until solid.
