  • 4 large oranges
  • 1 large lemon
  • 150g/5oz granulated sugar


  • Thinly pare the orange and lemon zest, and set aside for decoration.
    Cut the fruits in half, and squeeze the juices into a jug. Set aside.
  • Heat the sugar and 500ml/16fl oz water in a heavy saucepan, stirring
    until the sugar has dissolved. Bring to the boil, then boil without stirring
    until a syrup forms.
  • Remove the syrup from the heat, add some of the orange and lemon
    zest, and shake the pan. Cover and leave to cool.
  • Strain the sugar syrup into a shallow freezer container, and add the fruit
    juice. Stir well to mix, then freeze, uncovered, for about 4 hours until
    slushy. Remove the half-frozen mixture from the freezer and mix with a
    fork, then return to the freezer and freeze again for at least 4 hours.
  • To serve, turn into a bowl and leave to soften for about 10 minutes, then
    break up again and pile into long-stemmed glasses. Decorate with strips
    of orange and lemon zest.
