Set the freezer to rapid freeze at 2 hours before freezing. to ensure that the oranges stand upright, cut a thin slice from the base of each. cut a lid from each orange and remove the pith and flesh from each. do this over a bowl to catch all the juice. Discard the pith from the scooped out flesh, then chop the flesh to make a chunky puree. Place in a bowl with the juice. And stir in the buttermilk and honey, and pour into a freezer proof container freezer for 1 hour. place the empty orange shells upside down on a kitchen paper and leave to drain.

Remove the orange mixture from the freezer and stir well, breaking up any ice crystals. Return to the freezer for a further 30 minutes, or until semi-frozen. filled oranges upright in a container. freeze for a further hour, or until frozen.

Before serving, transfer to the refrigerator for 30 minutes, to soften slightly. Serve decorated with shaving if using.
