Most awkward ice cream ever

(viewed 2057 times)
Bookmark and Share
I got all my jobhunting tasks done by 3pm, so decided to treat myself to some vanilla ice cream. I'm usually quite the cook, so it's not usually a problem to knock up some creme englaise and freeze it into yummy ice cream.

I made a bit of a mess trying to make said ice cream. First of all I tried to
mix up the cream a bit before pouring it out , and a bit of the seal broke and
a bit went on the floor. oops.

Then I put it with some milk in the pan to bring to just before the boil while
I got the yolks out of the eggs and into the sugar - but the pan boiled and it
went WHOOSH over the top and made a bad smell. oh dear.

Then I whished the eggs together with the sugar, and realised I'd forgotten to
put the vanilla in the milk to infuse. GAH!

So I quickly cut it open and put as much as I could in, then dropped it in and
nearly burned my fingers getting it back out again. oww!

Finally I whisked it all together and it went together fine and tastes nice and
lovely and like ready to freeze ice cream.

Then I went to get the ice creme machine from the freezer and realised I hadn't
frozen the bowl.

So I poured it all into the new jug. Aah, good new jug.

It'll have to be finished tomorrow, but that should give the vanilla a chance
to infuse... this all happened in the space of about ten minutes! I was
knackered at the end of that!

After the mess I made just making vanilla?! Give me a break!!

I'm not too keen on raspberry ripple ice cream - I'd prefer to make a coulis and dribble that over it... ooh, that's an idea! Thanks!

Actually, next is strawberry.

Then triple choc :)

*Looks up more recipies
