    Oval in shape with a pronouced bulge on one end, lemons are one of the most versatile…

  • fresh raspberries, to serve



    A member of the rose family, raspberries have a wonderfully intense, sweet taste, and many…

  2. Pour the mix into an ice-cream machine and churn until thick and semi-frozen, then transfer to a freezerproof container and freeze. Serve the ice cream scooped into a bowl with fresh raspberries.

This is a fantastic recipe - I've already made it four times; three times with a Gala melon (couldn't find Cantaloupe) and once with a Watermelon! I don't have an icecream maker, so do the stirring by hand. It is so easy to do - I would even debate the 30 minutes preparation (depends on how long it takes you to carve out a melon - I can do it in under 10 mins) - I have it in the freezer in 20 mins or so. It tastes about half way between a sorbet and an icecream - a definite winner!
