Celebrate the New Season with Sophia Lindop’s Naartjie Creme Brulee Recipe

Season's Bounty: Cooking with nature's abundanceSophia Lindop recently shared a delicious recipe from her book Season’s Bounty: Cooking with nature’s abundance: a perfect dessert to complement the new season that has just begun.

“Found in South Africa, these citrus fruits are like eating an orange and a mandarin at the same time. It is believed that, as oranges spread from China throughout the world, they adapted to various conditions that resulted in variations in the species,” Lindop writes about her seasonal pick: Naartjies.

She has created an unforgettable Naartjie Crème Brûlée, with a subtle fruity flavour that lingers long after you have taken your last bite.

Try Lindop’s recipe:
