January BSFIC: Dried Fruit & Nuts

Happy New Year!

It’s January and I’m sure we can’t be the only household with leftover dried fruit and nuts from the Christmas snack bowls?

So this year’s first Bloggers Scream For Ice Cream challenge is to incorporate one or both into an ice cream, sorbet, semi-freddo, slushy or spoom.

    I have high hopes that there might be space in my freezer to be allowed to do these again now – there isn’t *yet*, but I can see teeny tiny rays of hope 🙂

    I can’t enter your competition Kav, but you have given me an idea, a ‘Khajoori Kulfi’. Kulfi might be quite nice, with chopped dates and a few blanched and chopped almonds added for crunch. Khajoor means dates in Hindi. I think that rose water flavour will go well with it. It will use up my leftover Khajoors lol!
