NEED TO KNOW
|Type of dish||Sweet treat|
Last week, while wrapped up against a bitterly cold wind, I saw a man walking down the road eating an ice cream at 9am. No matter that I was wearing three layers of clothing, I instantly wanted an ice cream too. So I went home and whipped up this one - which was ready by the time the sun came out in the afternoon.
EASY BLACKCURRANT ICE CREAM
The good news about this recipe is that you don't need an ice cream machine or any fancy gadgets.
The really good news is that it uses about a third of a tin of condensed milk, which leaves plenty for eating with a spoon while no one is looking. If you don't trust yourself with a tin of the stuff, you can see how to make your own here.
