Blackcurrant & Lime Ice-Cream


Prepare to be hit by a whirlwind of devilishly wonderful frozen cream-based goods now that we have our new toy! Well I say our new toy, it’s actually W’s but I have stolen it for the weekend *evil cackle*.

Makes 1 litre.


500g blackcurrants
150g sugar
150ml single cream
180ml milk
3 egg yolks
zest and juice of 1 or 2 limes*
zest of ½ a lemon

*I used 1 but next time I would definitely go for 2!


Identical** to Raspberry & Dark Chocolate ice-cream recipe here. But with blackcurrants and limes, obviously. And the following alterations:

– no need to push the purée through a sieve
– heat and stir for slightly longer as using single instead of double cream

**so I’m being a bit loose with the definition of identical but really there was no point writing it out all again was there?

This is damn tasty and not too unhealthy, as far as ice-cream goes. Sorry for the current lack of picture, I will rectify that tomorrow (if it’s not all been scoffed by then…!)

So what’s next on the frozen cream-based loveliness list? I’m thinking Lemon & Ginger…any other suggestions?
