Method

30 mins
 
Chili syrup
Combine water and sugar and stir over moderate heat until dissolved, add remaining ingredients and boil until slightly reduced +- 10 minutes. Allow to stand for a while at room temperature for the chili to be infused.

Chef notes:

It's quite a thin syrup perfect as a "dressing" for the fruit or in a tropical fruit salad. If you would like it thicker for eg. a cheese board, then just reduce it for longer until you get the consistency you want.
 
Coconut and lime ice-cream

Mix the icing sugar, juice and zest together and allow to stand for 15 minutes or until the sugar has dissolved.
Fold all the ingredients together, pour into a tub, cover and freeze for 6 hours, stirring every 2 hours or so.
When ready to serve, allow to stand at room temperature for +- 20 minutes to soften up.

Optional:
Sprinkle with some toasted desiccated coconut.
