After I made my first lot of icecream a year ago, I bought an icecream attachment for my Kenwood Chef. From that moment on, there really has been no stopping me. I've made blackberry, raspberry, strawberry, mango, passionfruit and mango ...
... and now rhubarb. I used a recipe from Sugarlaws and rhubarb from my garden. Oh, that icecream looks so beautiful and pink and cool! But I was going to have a problem. Can you see what it might be?
What about now?
I worked out by this point that my results were going to be, well, interesting. And hopefully delicious.
And yes, it is delicious. I've never seen ecru coloured icecream before, but I suppose that is what happens when three of your rhubarb plants are green varieties, and only one is red.
In what may be a plan doomed to failure due to our own laziness, we have decided to only eat homemade icecream this year. While we are not usually huge icecream quaffers, we do like a spot of vanilla on homemade apple crumble in winter. In the meantime I'm going to keep trying different ice cream recipes ... and then I'm going to try even more! And I have plans later on the weekend for these little fellas.
Plumcots from my workmate's garden. She has an enormous crop and doesn't make jam, so we've been eating them every day at work since last week. Today she brought me in my own bag of plumcotty goodness, just for icecream. Bless.
