8
To make the orange crisp heat the oven to 90°C/lowest gas mark your oven will go to
9
Slice the orange thinly with a very sharp knife. Dip in the stock syrup and dehydrate in the oven until crispy but not discoloured. Remove from the oven and allow to cool and harden whilst you make the sorbet
  • 1 orange
  • stock syrup

To make the orange and olive sorbet, mix all the ingredients together apart from the olive oil and bring to the boil
