Semifreddo, which translates to “half frozen” in Italian, is very easy to make and keep. This is one Chef John Ash, the creator of this recipe, likes to make in the winter. For the puree, use frozen berries. Simply thaw and puree them, strain, and flavor to taste with drops of lemon juice and honey.
