365 Challenge : 32 Flavours


Rum and raisin flavour
  • 100g/3½oz raisins soaked in 4 tbsp rum for 2 hours

Preparation method

  1. Whisk the egg whites in a large bowl until stiff peaks form when the whisk is removed.
  2. Slowly whisk in the caster sugar, then continue to whisk until the egg whites are stiff and glossy.
  3. Whisk the cream in a separate bowl until soft peaks form when the whisk is removed.
  4. Fold the cream, egg yolks and your chosen flavouring (see ingredients list) into the meringue mixture until well combined.
  5. Pour into a plastic container and freeze for at least two hours.

I guess there isn’t much to say about what my favourite flavour is! The recipe is from the BBC site (found here – http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/no-churn_ice_cream_72012 ) and I have made it before! Its lovely.

I’m actually not a big fan of ice cream! Though it goes well when wandering around zoo’s or beaches and the like. We aren’t big on sweets in our house so ice cream is a once every few months kind of thing. I don’t like anything over the top so I’ve only ever ate Ben and Jerry’s once. As a kid I loved mint Viennetta! To be honest though it wasn’t something my parents raised us on and we only really ate it at Christmas time which seemed strange to me as I didn’t want something cold to eat when it was always so cold anyway!

I decided to do a search for strange Ice Cream flavours and found a few strange ideas. Honey Jalapeno Pickle Ice cream…. Apparently you can get it in Denver from “Sweet Action Ice Cream”. Goat Cheese Cashew Caramel sounds lovely! Makes me want to fly to Chicago right away.  Of course not to be outdone by America the strangest one I found was in London at “George’s Portobello Fish Bar” and was a Creamed Cod Ice Cream.

So who has eaten any strange flavours? As you might have realised no, no I haven’t tasted any strange flavours! Rum and Raisin is good enough for my tastes!
