Method

Step 1 Add the sugar, honey, thyme, elderflower and 80 ml of water to a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir until the sugar dissolves and it becomes a light syrup. Strain the syrup and set aside to cool. Step 2

Once the syrup has cooled, combine it with the yoghurt and lemon zest and then churn in an ice cream machine according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Once churned, place in the freezer for 20 minutes before using.

Step 3

For the fennel–macadamia crunch, dry-toast the fennel seeds in a small frying pan over medium heat until toasted and fragrant, about 1 minute. Crush the seeds using a mortar and pestle and set aside to cool, then combine with the remaining ingredients in a small bowl.

Step 4

Serve the strawberries with a scoop of ice cream and cover with the macadamia crunch, a little extra lemon zest and a few elderflowers.
