Honey vanilla tamarillos with ginger cream
(at time of publication)
- 12 tamarillos
- 2 vanilla beans, split lengthways
- 3 tablespoons clear honey
- 2 tablespoons castor sugar
- 3 tablespoons lemon zest
- juice of ½ lemon
- ¼ cup apple juice
- To serve
- 8 tablespoons low-fat plain yoghurt
- sprinkling of ground cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons finely chopped stem or uncrystallised ginger
1 In a pan, large enough to fit tamarillos snugly, place tamarillos with enough water to cover. Scrape seeds from vanilla beans into pan and add beans. Add honey, sugar, 2 tablespoons zest, lemon juice, apple juice and bring to the boil.
2 Reduce heat, cover and gently poach tamarillos for 6 to 7 minutes, or until just cooked. Leave to cool.
3 Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine yoghurt, cinnamon and half of the ginger.
4 Remove tamarillos with a slotted spoon. Heat syrup to a rapid boil, reduce heat and simmer until slightly thickened. Serve 2 tamarillos each with yoghurt and sauce, garnished with remaining zest and ginger.
