Gooseberry Baobab and Almond Dessert came about to celebrate my friend, Michelle’s birthday. It was a warm gorgeous sunny evening and the sun was streaming through my flat. I had just come from work. I was time limited and I wanted to create something simply and nourishing. In this recipe I use frozen gooseberries. Ideally they would have been fresh in the first instance. I like the way, an hour before I started I de-thawed the gooseberry – this means that as you bite into a gooseberry this delicious mouth-watery texture hits the palate and then you get the taste of the creamy dessert. Love it. Thanks, Michelle…
Blanched almonds, I purchase from a nifty Asian outlet in Hayes. It has an online presence too which can be found here – I love it because it is reasonably priced and tends to be good quality stuff which I use.
