Me: Hey you!
You: Hi, Nisrine…don’t call me “you”; I have a name!

You: Yes, I’ve noticed.
Me: Then what are you waiting for? Go grab you a pound or two while they’re in season.

  • 1/4 cup water
  • Juice of half a lime
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Step 2: Remove from heat and puree in a blender or food processor.

Step 3: Transfer the mixture to an ice cream machine and churn according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Freeze in a lidded container until set.

Step 4: Serve garnished with mint and a sprinkling of paprika if you wish.
