Ice-cream is most definitely my first love (frequently taking priority in my life) and with this recipe I can make any flavour imaginable without having to invest in an ice-cream maker. Sometimes life does throw up the odd gem…
NB. Adding grated chocolate to the cream also works a treat as it melts when the hot sugar-egg mixture is added later.
5a. Place the granulated sugar in a pan with 6tbs of cold water, stirring on a low heat until dissolved (while continuing with 5b). Once dissolved bring to the boil for two mins.
5b. Separate your eggs leaving the whites and beat them until peaky.
5c. Once the sugar solution has done it’s two mins, take off the heat and whisk together with the egg whites. (Careful: HOT!)
