A reader recipe extraordinaire!
A BIG thanks to Michelle for sending in this Kiwi Fruit Sorbet!
Now we're upping the ante on the skill and equipment stakes here because this girl knows her way around a kitchen. If you aren't familiar with some of these ingredients or where you can find them, then just sing out. Well...leave a comment or send an email to wotsfortea (at) gmail (dot) com and we'll get you sorted.
