Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

As I was stupid enough to use up all my Guinness recipes on earlier blogpost, I had to turn to my 20 year old (OMG!) Irish Cookbook by Georgina Campbell.

I chose her Irish Mist & Honey ice cream recipe. All you need is 4 egg yolks, 4 tablespoons of honey, 4 tablespoons of Irish Mist and 3dl cream.
Irish Mist is a whisky liqueur and I just couldn’t get my hands on a bottle. I therefore took the liberty of using Baileys (with a hint of crème caramel) instead of Irish Mist.

First, you have to bring the honey almost to a boil. Then add the honey to the egg yolks and whip for about 10 minutes.

Add the Irish Mist (or in my case the Baileys).
Whip the cream and fold in the honey/Irish Mist mix. Here I would like to point out that I had to whip the cream by hand today. A tough job!

Fill the mix into a container and put it in the freezer.

The author of the recipe writes that you neither need an ice cream machine nor need to stir the ice cream to prevent ice crystals. I was sceptical about this but of course Georgina knows better.
The ice cream is creamy and delicious. I definitely want to try it again with the name giving ingredient, Irish Mist.
