Such a long break!
I should be ashamed of myself… but I’m not ;P because I’ve just come back from the most wonderful holidays ever! :)))
I have to admit I feel a bit strange posting on Sarenka again… Well, need to put myself together, I think :)
There is this craze about red and black currant now… Especially on Dorota’s blog… The decision was quite easy – their craze – currant, my personal craze – ice-cream… Then RedCurrant Ice-Cream! :)
It’s flawless… Sour, really sour… You can feel this currant-acid pinching your tongue! So nice!
I’ll have to try out BlackCurrant version too, oh yes :)
Ingredients (1l of ice-cream):
- 500g redcurrant
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 3 yolks
- 1/3 cup sugar + 1/2 cup sugar
Wash redcurrant, get rid of these little twigs :)
Place them in the pan, add 1/2 cup of sugar and boil it, stirring stirring :)
Once it’s boiled, sieve it and leave aside.
Heat up milk with heavy cream till the moment of boiling.
Whisk the yolks with 1/3 cup of sugar until it’s creamy and fluffy.
Add the mass to the warm milk mixture, stirring constantly.
Heat it up again on a low-heat until the mass gets gluey and spoon-sticky.
Do not boil the mass!!!
Just before the boiling moment take it off the heat.
Chill a bit.
Add redcurrant mass and stir all until combined.
Cool it in the fridge overnight.
The next day, mix the mass and put it into the freezer.
You’ll have to do so every one hour (or 1,5h) just to get rid of little pieces of ice :)
Mix it till you can :)
When the mass is too thick to be mixed, leave it in the freezer :)
Smacznego and see you soon :)
