Making Strawberry and Rum Ice Cream

This morning – “we be making” – strawberry Ice cream with strawberry chunks that have been soaked in spiced rum and sugar for the last 48 hours. The rum adds great vanilla and spice flavours and the alcohol also stops the the strawberry chunks from freezing into little iceberg nuggets. They are like smooth little explosions of sweet spice when you bite through one.

Strawberry Ice Cream ready to eat. We mixed in about 200ml of rum to 4 litres of ice cream. Tastes amazing.

Inventing a new high powered “Cherry Bomb” Ice Cream

Just finished making our own Morello Cherry Ice Cream for a 21st Birthday party this Saturday. Been experimenting with lots of interesting ingredients to try and get the Ice Cream we like – and finally found a fabulous concoction at Sainsbury’s called Morello Cherry Compot. Never even knew it existed until researching for this ice cream. Brilliant flavour. So we blitzed the compote with real cherries in kirsch, Cherry Brandy, and a tiny touch of white chocolate. This turned out to be the winning set of ingredients. It really tastes sensational with that lovely little bit of bitterness from the berries – sweetness from the Ice cream custard and chocolate, and a zing from the booze. The colour is almost neon…
