Sweet

If you're interested (and frankly even if you're not) here are the ice cream recipes I created for my Serendipity Dinners.


Orange and Cardamom Ice Cream

Pour 300mls of milk, 250mls of cream, 0.5 cups of caster sugar, a pinch of salt and 2 teaspoons of ground cardamom into an ice cream machine and set it running. Finely dice an entire large orange, including peel. When the ice cream machine has turned the mix into a thick slurry, stir through the orange, then transfer into a sealable container and freeze.


Roasted Balsamic Strawberry Ice Cream

Pour 200mls of milk, 200mls of cream, 200mls of zero-fat greek-style yoghurt, 0.5 cups of gourmet strawberry dessert topping and a pinch of salt and into an ice cream machine and set it running. Hull and quarter a punnet of strawberries, then arrange them on a baking tray. Spray them with balsamic vinegar and sprinkle with caster sugar. Place under a hot grill until the strawberries just start to blacken. When the ice cream machine has turned the mix into a thick slurry, stir through the strawberries, then transfer into a sealable container and freeze.


White Peach and Ewok Ice Cream

Peel, dice and remove stones from six white peaches, then saute for less than two minutes in 100mls of grappa. Stir in 0.5 cups caster sugar, then put aside to cool. Kill and skin one small to medium sized ewok, kicking it a few times just for good measure. Ball up the bloody pelt and mail it to George Lucas, with a short note explaining that this is what you think of his frikkin' ewoks. Mince flesh, then feed it to your dog, especially if you don't like your dog much. Discard remains. Returning to the peaches, add 300mls milk, 250mls cream and a pinch of salt, then blend and put in ice cream machine. When the ice cream machine has turned the mix into a thick slurry, transfer into a sealable container and freeze.

0.5 cups, I mean come on. 1/2 a cup I could live with, even xy.z g. And you call yourself an Engineer!

You know what they say, you lie down with dogs you get up with fleas. Only instead of lying down I have socialising, and instead of fleas I have obsessive obedience to the metric system. And fleas.
