“The picture shows the ice cream with over a day in the freezer. The vodka and gum, even though optional, will make sure that your ice cream remains the right amount of soft with a unique flavour. Tweak the sugar content to your liking, keeping in mind that the liquid mixture should be a bit sweeter than what you would like in the final ice cream. This ice cream base can be used for other flavours and unlike custard bases, it maintains the original flavour of the fruit.”

Utensils

  • blender
  • Step 1/5

    • 200 ml heavy cream
    • 200 ml whole milk
    • 100 ml golden syrup
    • 150 g sugar
    • ½ tsp sea salt

    In a 2L container, add your milk, heavy cream, golden syrup, sugar and salt and mix until all the sugar and syrup are dissolved.

  • Step 2/5

    • pomegranate
    • blender

    Open your pomegranate and blend its seeds just enough to get the juice out. Strain the blended content into the container with your misture and mix everything until the juice is fully incorporated.

  • Step 3/5

    • ¼ tsp xantham gun (optional)
    • ½ tbsp vodka (optional)

    (Optional) If using the Gum or the vodka, now is the time to add them to the mix. Start with the vodka, mix it in until fully incorporated. Then, keep stirring your mixture and very slowly add your gum, while still stirring. It is important to keep stirring because the gum acts quickly and if it clumps up it wont have the desired effect. If possible have someone pour the gum while you stir. Mix it very well.

  • Step 4/5

    Put mixture in the fridge and chill it until it is at about 45F/7C, which could take between 6 hours and a day.

  • Step 5/5

    Take mixture out of fridge and pour into ice cream machine as per manufacturer instructions. You will notice that if you done the optional step with the gum and vodka, it will take longer to freeze than usual, which is the intention for a softer end texture. Ideally freeze the ice cream for at least 4 hours before serving
