Proper Ice Cream
There is nothing like home made ice cream on a sunny summers day – or indeed on any day! It is completely delicious. This recipe is almost like an ice cream sundae! It also contains quantities of health giving Bramley Apples. Containing good quantities of real fruit makes it head and shoulders above any commercially made ice ream. The total cost for a litre is around £3, much cheaper than most commercial premium ice-creams – and obviously with no artificial ingredients!
It is so good to make your own ice creams. It’s cheaper, more nutririous and of course you know exactly what has gone into them. the same goes for fruit yoghurts too – make your own!!
Homemade Ice Cream
I do have an ice cream maker which makes the process quicker, but all it does really is speed up the freezing process, so you can eat it sooner.
If you make it without, you just have to remember to take it out of the freezer every two hours to give it all a good stir – (and you can even lick the spoon afterwards!!). If you are using an ice cream maker, ensure it is in the freezer 24 hours before you want to use it.
You could try this recipe with any type of apple, it could be a good way of using up surplus on an apple tree! You may need to use a bit less sugar if you use a sweeter apple. I have used a mix of double cream and greek yoghurt. You could use all cream or all yoghurt if you prefer. Or use a lower fat ordinary yoghurt.
When making ice cream, make sure all your ingredients are as cold as possible. Keep the cream and yoghurt in the fridge up to the point where you ned to add them. The recipe includes cooking apples and cooking the crumble so make sure these have completely cooled before mixing them in with the cream and yoghurt to make the ice cream.
