Spiced Apple and Pecan Crumble with Mascarpone Vanilla CreamServes 6-8

Spiced Apple and Pecan Crumble with Mascarpone Vanilla Cream

Apple crumble is one of your all-time favourite desserts, so why not give it an extra dimension with pecan nuts and mascarpone cream, lifting it into the luxury league.

 
 
Spiced Pickled PearsMakes a 1 litre jar

Spiced Pickled Pears

This unusual pickle looks impressive and tastes wonderful! Serve the pears with cold meats and poultry... they'd go particularly well with gammon or ham, and would make excellent food gifts.

 
 
Preserved Pickled PeachesMakes 1¾ pints (1 litre)

Preserved Pickled Peaches

Pickled peaches are a brilliant way of keeping that summery feeling going all year round: perfect with cold meats and especially cheeses, these bottled fruits are certain to become a yearly tradition.

 
 
Rhubarb Crumble Ice CreamServes 6-8 – makes 2 pints (1.2 litres)

Rhubarb Crumble Ice Cream

It has to be said that while we were filming ice creams for The Summer Collection television series, the team tasted them all (with not a spoonful left over!) and voted this one their number one favourite.

 
 
Praline Ice CreamFor the praline:

Praline Ice Cream

If you are short of time, the praline is also good just sprinkled over ice cream.

 
 
Mincemeat and Apple Crumble Flan with AlmondsServes 6

Mincemeat and Apple Crumble Flan with Almonds

If you've got leftover mincemeat this will cheer up a January Sunday lunch beautifully. A ready-made pastry flan case will also save you time, which we have discovered works really well when frozen first.

 
 
Gooseberry and Elderflower Ice CreamServes 6-8 – makes 2 pints (1.2 litres)

Gooseberry and Elderflower Ice Cream

This ice cream is unbelievably good. Perhaps one of the best treats of early summer would be to serve A Very Easy One Crust Gooseberry Pie accompanied by home-made ice cream: what a combination!

 
 
Gooseberry Yoghurt FoolServes 6

Gooseberry Yoghurt Fool

I now find that lusciously thick genuine Greek yoghurt makes the best fruit fool of all, as it allows the full flavour of the fruit to dominate. If you're serving this to someone who doesn't like yoghurt, don't worry – they won't know.

 
 
Greek Orange and Honey Syrup Cake with Yoghurt and PistachiosServes 12

Greek Orange and Honey Syrup Cake with Yoghurt and Pistachios

This cake is hugely popular all over the Eastern Mediterranean where local produce - oranges, honey, pistachios and yoghurt - are combined to make one glorious, syrup-soaked cake.

 
 
Frozen Chocolate BananasMakes 12

Frozen Chocolate Bananas

Sounds odd, doesn't it? But you'll believe it when you try it. These are truly sensational – better than ice cream or a sorbet. First you bite into crisp frozen chocolate and then meet the beautifully fragrant iced banana. Heaven.
