Making caramel without caramel

The secret's out. This is the super-fruit that gives our ice cream a smooth maple taste, chased by a rounded caramel flavour. No need for caramelised sugar. Lucuma does it naturally.

Charlie first came across Lucuma (known as 'gold of the incas') while travelling in Peru. It's shaped like a melon, with golden flesh and a big single stone. With plenty of beta carotene, iron, zinc, vitamin B3, calcium, and protein, it's also super nutritious.
