25 Oct Indulgent crème brûlée with bergamot
This fabulous recipe has been doing the rounds with the PBL team and we love it as it uses bergamot — a citrus fruit that looks like an orange but has the brilliant green colouring of a lime.
It has a tart citrus taste, slightly reminiscent of a grapefruit and did you know it has the highest percentage content of Vitamin C from over 40 species of citrus fruit!
