Blackcurrant Ice Cream Recipe

Blackcurrant Ice Cream Recipe

Ingredients: Serves 8

450 g/1 lb blackcurrants, stripped from their stalks
150 ml water
75 g/3 oz caster (superfine) sugar

3 eggs, separated
300 ml single (light) cream

300 ml double (heavy) cream


Put the blackcurrants in a pan with the water and sugar. Heat gently, stirring, until the sugar dissolves, then bring to the boil and boil for 5 minutes. Puree in a blender or food processor, then pass through a sieve (strainer). Beat the egg yolks, then gradually whisk in the puree. Cool slightly, then stir in the single cream. Turn into a freezer-proof container and freeze for 11.5 hours until half-frozen. Whisk thoroughly with a fork to break up the ice crystals. Whisk the egg whites until stiff, then whip the double cream until peaking. Fold the cream, then the egg whites, into the mixture and freeze until firm.
