I recently decided to treat myself to an ice cream maker. Normally when I buy myself anything electrical for the kitchen it gets used once or twice and is then banished to a press to spend a few years. However I think this ice cream maker is different, because ice cream belongs in every freezer and it’s even better though when you pull out a tub made by yourself that suits your taste perfectly.
Since finishing the leaving, I hardly see my granny. It’s quite a shock to the system, considering I’ve been down there at least once a week for the past 14 years. So I decided to have her over for lunch the other day. As I’ve recently been making ice cream on a near daily basis I took it upon myself to make one of her favourites, rum & raisin in the hope it would be sunny. I’m not a fan of raisins, they are vile little wrinkley things. However I’m a huge fan of Captain Morgans, something which I’ve found really goes well in ice cream. I should at this point state that this recipe is alcoholic and shouldn’t be given to children, always eat responsibly, etc..
- Place the raisins in a small bowl, add the rum and leave to soak overnight. You’ll get away with leaving them for just an hour or two though.
- In a small pot on a low-medium heat, combine the milk and sugar. Stir until the sugar has dissolved.
- In another small bowl, whisk the egg yolks. Slowly add the milk and sugar mixture, whisking constantly. Return to the pot and continue mixing with a spoon until the mixture coats the back of a spoon.
- Move to mixture to a large bowl, add the cream and stir well. Place the bowl into a basin of ice water to cool it down. Once the mixture has cooled, place in the fridge for 2 – 3 hours. This is the ice cream mix.
- Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker for around 30 minutes. When there is around 5 – 10 minutes left, add the raisins and any remaining rum.
- Transfer the ice cream to a container and put it into the freezer until you’re ready to eat it.
