Ice cream rescue

It’s a busy week & I knew yesterday that I wouldn’t be able to spend much if any time in the kitchen. I didn’t want to use up any wild cards or rainchecks either. But luckily, the day starts at 00h00….

So I rummaged in my fridge and the ice cream booklet to see if my ice cream maker could come to the rescue. It did!

So today’s recipe is vanilla ice cream with a zing (ginger) and a twist (pineapple).

Heat 1 cup of cream together with 1 scraped and slit vanilla pod and 4-5 slices of ginger. Bring to the boil and leave to cool. Whisk 2 large eggs until fluffy, add 1 cup of sugar and whisk again for a minute or so. Add the cream mix after removing the vanille and ginger.


Add diced pineapple.


Put in ice cream maker and then in the freezer to enjoy after a busy day. Only infusing the ginger in the cream and not adding grated ginger or ginger pieces, gives it a lovely subtle taste. If you want it more gingery add fresh ginger to your ice cream.
