    Star anise is one of the central spices in Chinese cooking. It has a strong anise flavour, with…

  • 100g caster sugar

Method

  1. Put the orange juice, star anise and sugar into a pan. Bring to the boil, stirring, until the sugar has dissolved, then remove the star anise. Cool, then pour into an ice-cream machine and churn until smooth and frozen. (If you don’t have an ice-cream machine, cool the mixture, then tip into a freezerproof container and freeze until firm, whisking every hour with a fork to break up the ice crystals.)

Lovely - went really well with the Ginger Crunch Meringue Bombes. It was very easy to make - even without an ice-cream machine - and the hint of Star Anise was really nice. Very refreshing, and would be really nice on its own in the summer too. It doesn't make a great deal though - so if it was to be on its own I think I'd double the quantities.
