We make it in our shops in Dingle, Killarney and Dublin with Murphy’s Brown Bread ice cream, butterscotch sauce, salted caramel cream, and our own sticky toffee pudding. I added 2 Tbsp of vodka to the mixture while it chilled in the fridge so that it wouldn’t harden up (as most home-made ice creams do). Scrape the ice cream into a shallow container (to help it freeze faster) and, just like when making custard or pudding, cover the surface of the ice cream completely with plastic wrap or waxed paper.
Chocolate stracciatella swirls are an improvement over the hard nubs of frozen chocolate you tend to find in the store-bought kind. Red maraschino cherries, cream, brown sugar, vanilla and pecans combine into a rich blend for your ice cream freezer. Also – the ice cream mixture is not necessarily directly proportional to the rock salt mixture; that is, if you were to halve the ingredients in the ice cream mixture, you could still use the same amount of rock salt and ice.
Dessert was tapioca pudding with coconut milk and lime juice, and a selection of fresh fruits. I have a few ice cream recipes that does not require a machine that is just as smooth, soft, and yummy. The real stuff requires equipment beyond the home-cooking arsenal, but we’ll get you close with this recipe, which includes an ice cream base that’s heavy on the cream and egg yolks, with a little corn syrup.
I am way more of a cook than a scholar, but if that makes me look clever, then happy days! Custard is perhaps the most classic, and you can see how to make it in this post: How To Make Vanilla Ice Cream This involves cooking egg yolks with cream and sugar.
Thicken the ice cream base: Whisk about 1/2 cup of the hot milk mixture into the cornstarch slurry. The stew was layered with flavor and the hand pies were heavenly, especially next to a scoop of vanilla ice cream. When making the simplest of ice creams, allowing for three parts sugar to seven parts double cream and fruit purée will mean the mixture won’t even have to be churned in an ice cream maker (although the texture will be better if it is churned).
