roasted strawberry coconut milk popsicles

from: the year in food

250 g small strawberries, hulled and quartered
1 - 398 mL can coconut milk (not light!)
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon cardamom

Toss strawberries in a tablespoon of sugar. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the strawberries on paper. Roast at 350ºF until tender and caramelized, about 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, warm the coconut milk in a small pan over low heat. Add the 1/4 cup sugar and the cardamom and stir until sugar is just dissolved. Remove from heat and let steep.

When the strawberries are ready, remove from heat and let cool for at least 5 minutes. Then combine the strawberries with the coconut milk. Using a glass measure with a lip, carefully pour the mixture into 8 popsicle molds. You may need to stir them just a little so that the fruit is distributed.

Chill for a minimum of four hours.

I liked the strawberry ones, but Mark adored these lemony guys and I didn't turn my nose up at them or anything.

lemon ice cream

3 lemons
1 1/4 c whipping cream
1 c milk
1 c sugar

Grate the peel of the lemons. Mix the cream, milk and sugar thoroughly, then add the peel. Place in a covered bowl in the freezer until almost firm, about 5 hr (it can be left in overnight and then put in a warm room until it's easy to handle). Mash with a potato masher, wooden spoon or food processor, add the juice of 2 1/2-3 lemons (depending on taste), mix very well, cover and return to the freezer until firm.

Oil the bottom and sides of an 8" springform pan and sprinkle with ground almonds, shaking the pan so that the almonds cover the bottom and sides completely.

At serving time, remove frozen mousse from pan and garnish with sliced fruit. Spoon Sauce Cardinale over servings.
