  • 4 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 50 millilitres water
  • 4 tablespoons yuzu juice

To make the blueberry and yuzu ripple
  1. Add the blueberries, water and sugar to a heavy bottomed pan.

  2. Heat gently until the sugar has dissolved.

  4. turn up the heat to high and bring to a bubble, stirring constantly.

  5. Remove from the heat once the mix is thick and syrupy.

  6. Let the blueberry syrup cool completely before adding the yuzu one tablespoon at a time (keep tasting until you're happy with the balance of sweet and sour).

To make the ice cream base
