Ice cream and sorbets put a smile on every kid's face. And grown-ups like them, too!
A delicate swirl of blueberry jam adds elegance to sweet, rich ice cream. Other contrasting jams, such as raspberry or strawberry, look pretty, too. Use jams that are double or higher the ratio of fruit to sugar.

Sweet, floral honey is wonderful with fresh or baked summer fruits. With fall fruits and apple pies, try a richer flavoured honey, such as buckwheat.
Ginger, spices and tea make this exotic ice cream a refreshing finale to a spicy summer meal. Light black teas, such as Darjeeling, infuse the smoothest flavour.
Tangy-sweet lemon sorbet accompanied by summer berries makes a casual finale or a palate cleanser between courses.
This sorbet tastes as rich as ice cream but doesn't have the eggs and cream. Chocolate bars with 65 to 72 per cent pure cocoa give the smoothest, creamiest texture. For dairy-free sorbet, make all 9 oz (270 g) of the chocolate bittersweet.
