When it comes to citrus, nartjies and their orange relatives (ahem clementines and mandarins) are at the bottom of my list of favorites. This sorbet however has moved them up the list. It’s made with just one ingredient – Clemengolds, specifically the teeny and shweet baby mandarins from Woolies. They have no seeds (important for this ‘recipe’) and are deliciously sweet (they are not however SO easy to peel). When frozen and then blended, they turn into a bright, sweet and creamy fruit sorbet.
