making ice cream

Discussion in 'Cookery' started by cosmos, Aug 15, 2011.

  1. I don't have an ice cream maker and I really can't be bothered with the freezing/beating process - I am sure that I have seen a method for making ice cream that requires neither but can't find it. Can anyone help? I want to make blackberry ice cream and plum ice cream ( or even blackberry and plum ice cream).
    How long can you keep home made ice cream by the way?

    chill then whisk together Elmlea Whippng cream and evaporated milk OR ready-made custard from a tin - both work!
    (sounds disgusting I know but taste fine)

    or... add sweetened puree to plain yoghurt and freeze.
     
  4. The evaporated milk method rings a bell.
    Can the yoghurt be fat-free?

    I don't know.
    I use Sainsburys basics for ice cream.

  7. Clever you for finding that EG - I imagine I could add fruit puree to the basic mixture - might even add a slug of creme de mures!
    ! shan't, unfortunately, be eating it......[​IMG]

    If you add the fruit puree, then surely it would count as one of your five a day?
    I think you need to brush up on your knowledge of the Lapin book of nutrition!

    Listening to Womans Hour last week (oh, don't you just love the holidays) I heard an item on 'Cook the perfect....ice cream. It was a very simple, no churn, recipe and you can find it on the Radio 4 - Womans Hour - website, along with lots of other 'Cook the perfect..... recipes.

    I had this link saved about making ice cream in a bag. If I recal rightly, I was pointed to it on here but I can't remember who by, sorry!

  11. Me! Thread's called making food in unusual ways - or something similar! I had it posted on fb!
    I tried it, and it really does work!
    But I do the freezing beating thing, no real faff and makes nice ice cream!
     
  12. I decided I was just being lazy and made some blackberry ice cream using the beating/freezing method and it was delicious. The recipe said to beat it only once during the process but twice would have been better as it was a bit crystal-ly. I'm going to make some plum ice cream this evening trying the custard base method. Will let you know how it turns out.

    Sounds amazing Cosmos. I've been given a glut of plums by my auntie (my tree had just the one plum and mini-belle fed it to the chickens!).
    I shall give it a whirl as they say!
     
  14. I add fruit puree - strawberries this year owing to a glut - to whipped double cream and condensed milk Then into a container and into the freezer, job done. Works every time.

    Our local ice cream shop makes a damson and sloe gin ice cream. It's a fantastic combination.
