I can taste the zing just thinking about this recipe, the lime, the organic candied ginger mixed with lemon is a great combination for a summer treat. It’s another simple one that will take a whole 25 minutes to get it into the fridge, winning over family, friends and guests. These can be served in ramekins, glass yoghurt pots or old jam jars with sealed lids & they can be made 24 hours in advance. I often serve this dessert after fish, it seems to finish the meal off perfectly.
