This ice cream recipe combines zingy tangerines, sweet dates and creamy, rich tahini, resulting in an understated yet spectacular little dessert. Rippled with a date and tangerine jam and then drizzled with fresh tahini and date syrup, it takes some of the finest flavours of the Middle East and channels them into a single scoop.

Method
  1. Combine the milk, cream and tangerine zest in a saucepan and gently heat until steaming. Meanwhile, whisk the sugar and eggs together in a bowl until pale
  2. Pour a little bit of the steaming milk mixture into the eggs and whisk to combine and temper, then pour the entire contents of the bowl back into the saucepan. Heat gently, stirring constantly, until the temperature reaches 83°C. Remove from the heat, cover and leave to cool, then transfer to the fridge to chill completely
  3. While the ice cream base chills, finely chop the dates and place in a pan with the tangerine juice. Place over a medium heat and simmer until reduced to a thick, jam-like consistency. Remove from the heat and chill
  4. Pour the ice cream base into an ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer’s instructions. When the ice cream starts to solidify and freeze, gradually stream in the date and tangerine jam with the motor running, to create a ripple of jam throughout the ice cream. Store the ice cream in the freezer until ready to serve
  5. When ready to serve, place a large scoop of ice cream in the base of each bowl. Drizzle over approximately 15ml of tahini and 15ml of date syrup, then serve immediately
