Starfruit and green tea dessert topping
Green tea is rather tart, so combining it with sweet and tart starfruit makes incredible taste sense. A warm topping for angel food cake, pound cake and just about any other cake.
- 1 cup water
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1" piece of fresh ginger, peeled and finely chopped
- 4 green tea bags
- 3 large Florida starfruit
- Lime or mango sherbet
In a medium saucepan over low heat, add the water, sugar and ginger. Stir until the sugar dissolves, about 2 minutes.
Turn the heat up to medium-high and bring to a boil.
Turn the heat down to low and simmer until the syrup thickens, about 5 minutes. Remove the saucepan from the heat.
Add the tea bags, cover and let brew for 5 minutes.
With a vegetable peeler, trim the points of the starfruit. Slice into 1/4" slices, discarding the seeds.
Add the starfruit to the saucepan and gently toss to cover.
Cover and let sit for 15 to 30 minutes.
Top each individual dish of ice cream with syrup and add the individual's portion of starfruit slices.
