Here I'm again...Today I feel inspired, also I have to catch up with all the others...Here I will be posting my first dessert. What you need is ginger biscuits, vanilla ice cream, clementines and oranges. We are also gonna make some caramel with some caster sugar and water (55g of caster sugar with 6 tablespoons of water, just to give you an idea of the proportion). The most difficult part is the caramel: it burns very quickly if you don't take it out of the heat soon enough, basically as soon as it starts having a brownish color.

now you almost got it: smash the ginger biscuits to get a crumble, place a vanilla ice cream ball on top with a slice of clementine (it's got to be a good one!!Sorry, but no time is given to cheap/crap ingredients!). When u have done all the proportion, then you can start making the caramel...Remember to have the heat low and stir it all the time. When the water starts boiling squeeze in half orange and then place the caramel with a spoon on top of the ice cream!


PS: remember that the main secret to good food are good ingredients!
