Auntie Carola's Orange Ice cream
I have been away at a weekend event catering for a lovey family at the beautiful Elmore Court in Gloucestershire and have had a request for this recipe that I served with dessert on Saturday night.
I'm not sure where she acquired this recipe but it is the only ice cream I make regularly as it requires no churning. Brilliant! You simply combine the ingredients and let it set in the freezer. No taking it out every 30 minutes for a stir as some recipes require... Or fancy ice cream machines that need to be frozen themselves 48 hours in advance... agggh
You will need:
6 Egg yolks
8oz caster sugar
1/2 pint double cream
Grated zest and juice of 2 oranges and one lemon
Whisk the yolks and the sugar until creamy. Add the juice and rind and whisk. Whisk the cream separately and fold into the mixture. Pour into a tub and freeze over night. Simple! If you can get your hands on individual chocolate cups... (amazon do sell them) pour the mixture into the cups, freeze and serve as a delicious frozen canape or after dinner treat....
