1 organic orange
100 ml double cream
75 g unsalted butter
45 g Siúcra Icing Sugar
200 g milk chocolate
150 g milk chocolate for coating the truffles
100 g pistachios
Wash the orange thoroughly and finely grate the zest. Put the cream, butter and icing sugar in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Break the chocolate into small pieces and add to the cream mixture. Stir until the chocolate has melted. Stir in the orange zest.
Place in the refrigerator until the truffle mixture stiffened. Shape the mixture into balls, place them on a plate and put them in the freezer for 30 minutes.
Finely chop the pistachios. Melt the chocolate over a water bath. Dip the truffles in the chocolate, then roll them in the chopped pistachios. Stand them on a sheet of foil to set.
Store in a cool place.

Time for citrus
Is there anything better than to start the morning with homemade marmalade on your toast. Let the season's citrus fruits inspire you.
Inspired by the Japanese breakfast staple, Puffed Pancakes with Strawberries, Cinnamon Syrup and Lemon Cream, served warm and straight from the pan are sure to be a winner with all the family.
Mmm! What could be better than a rich, sumptuous chocolate cake to lift the spirits – either as an indulgent treat or to round off a meal.
