HOMEMADE HONEY AND MACADAMIA NUT ICE CREAM

For this recipe you will need an ice-cream machine. They are really cheap, I got mine from www.oo.com.au It’s the Cuisinart, you can get a 1 litre one for $55. They are a well worth it item to have in the kitchen. Enjoy this super creamy treat! HOMEMADE HONEY AND MACADAMIA NUT ICE CREAM Ingredients (makes just under 1 litre)

2 cups (500ml) organic whole milk- I use Shultz organic bath milk, it’s raw, non-pasturised and non-homogenised and comes from grass fed cows.

1 cup (250ml) organic grass-fed whole cream- also Shultz ⅓-1/2 cup unpasturised honey (depending on how sweet you like it)

5 organic egg yolks from pastured hens

100g organic macadamia nuts

1/4 cup organic raw honey

Method

1) Separate egg yolks into a large bowl and lightly whisk (keep the egg whites to use in another meal)

2) Heat milk and cream in a saucepan. Once it comes to a boil, remove from the heat and pour ⅓ of the mixture into the egg yolks whisking constantly for about 15 seconds then pour ⅓ of the mixture into the egg yolks again whilst whisking for another 15 seconds. Finally, pour all of the egg yolk mixture into the saucepan with the remaining milk/cream mixture and stir constantly over low heat. The mixture should become thicker and you will know it is ready when it coats the spatula. You can also use a thermometer and allow it to reach 77 ºC.

3) When the mixture has thickened, turn off the stove and allow to cool slightly (to 60ºC) pour in the honey and mix until combined. The mixture needs to reach below 60ºC so it does not destroy the goodness of the honey.

4) Stir in the nuts and place in the fridge for at least 2 hours, or until completely cool (it must be cold when you put into ice cream machine, you can even leave it overnight). You can put into the freezer to cool quicker but don’t let it get icy.

5) Follow the instructions on your ice cream machine. I use the Cuisinart and you simply pour the cold mixture into the machine and churn it for 15-20 minutes until it thickens. You can serve immediately or place into a sealed container and back into the freezer.

    […] Fruit desserts are a delight because, when used in season, the fruit gives the dish it’s sweetness meaning there is need for just a little extra sweetener, if any at all. I love to enjoy this dessert with some organic full fat grass-fed cream (raw when I can get it). Sometimes I will make it without the brown rice syrup and serve it with my homemade ice-cream.  […]
