It is also nice to add small pieces of watermelon to the blackberries and strawberries.

Vanilla sugar syrup

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
100g caster sugar
100ml water
1 vanilla bean, split and scraped
1 lemon, pealed
2 punnets blackberries
1 punnet strawberries
1/3 cup mint leaves, finely shredded
100g pistachio halawa, crumbled
Watermelon and rosewater sorbet
80g unsalted pistachio nuts, roughly chopped and sieved

Method

  1. To make the vanilla sugar syrup, put the sugar, water, vanilla bean and lemon peel into a small saucepan. Bring to the boil, then simmer gently for about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat. When cool, remove the vanilla bean; this can be washed and reused to flavour your canister of sugar.
  2. Put the blackberries, strawberries and mint into a mixing bowl and pour on half the vanilla sugar syrup (use the rest in another dessert). Toss gently, then divide between 4 shallow bowls. Crumble on the halawa and place a large spoonful of sorbet on top. Garnish with the pistachio nuts.
