    Homemade Ice Cream

    I don't know why, but in the dead of winter, I usually get a craving for ice cream. I'm not sure why.

    Anyhow, late last night I made Guinness ice cream and put it on some freshly baked brownies. It was so good that this morning I woke up and had it again for breakfast.

    I love trying different ice creams. My favorite is peanut butter, but in the past I have made avocado, pear/pecorino, sweet corn, cinnamon, and strawberry-sour cream.

    I came across the recipe in Jamie Oliver's magazine. I'll take a photo of it when I have the chance, but you basically reduce a can of guinness to about 100ml, then make an egg yolk (5x)/sugar slurry (180g) and add hot milk (300 ml) to it for the custard. Add the reduce beer to the custard, and then turn in some whipping cream (300 ml) that has been whipped to soft peaks.

    The ice cream starts off tasting sort of like coffee ice cream and finishes with beer notes. It took significantly longer to finish in my ice cream maker than other ice creams I have made. Part of it was because I didn't have time to properly chill the mixture as much as I would have liked, but it may also have been because of the alcohol and air whipped into the cream. Often homemade ice creams freeze up rock hard, but this one was still fluffy and easy to scoop the next day.

    i might rightly try that out. wonder if a bit of molasses would do as an addition and cut down on the sugar? =D

    playing around with ratios. fun.

    Sounds like something that would be good to try on waffles for breakfast.

    Ordered a 1.5L robot coupe ice cream churn last week, it arrived today ! Looking forward to putting it through its paces for the rest of summer, and through winter
