Christmas ham recipes

Soured milk with lemon oil and saffron-orange shaved ice


"Orange and saffron is one of my favourite combinations and the method of blending this with ice is a quick and simple way to make a fresh and aromatic granita," says Quade. "The lemon-pressed extra-virgin olive oil adds an earthy, creamy element to the natural yoghurt, making it a great partner to the acidic granita. A lovely dish to end a hot February evening."

You'll need

1 orange, segmented, seeds discarded 20 gm organic activated almonds, coarsely chopped (see note) To serve: lemon balm (optional) and lemon-pressed extra-virgin olive oil (see note)   Soured milk with lemon oil 450 gm natural pot-set yoghurt 60 gm double cream 55 ml lemon-pressed extra-virgin olive oil Finely grated rind of 1 lemon   Saffron-orange shaved ice 100 gm caster sugar 50 gm liquid glucose (see note) 4 oranges, rind finely grated on a microplane, flesh segmented, seeds discarded 2 pinches of Spanish saffron 500 gm ice cubes
