    1. No, you can't and yours will be the best because you will make it yourself... Best, Sixte

    1. Hi Lizzy. Sure I know. My children would like a new one every single day! But you have to guide me : chestnut, Nutella, almond, figs, rhubarb, etc, etc... Best, Sixte

    2. Thank you Sixte for your prompt reply. Could I have a Nutella ice cream recipe, please? Lizzy

      Delete
    3. Sure Lizzy, here you are :
      2 eggs – ¼ litre of milk – 40g of sugar – 150g of Nutella paste

      Heat the milk in a saucepan.
      In a bowl, mix the eggs with the sugar.
      Add this preparation to the saucepan and place over low heat.
      Stir frequently until the mixture thickens slightly and coasts the back of your wooden spoon (we call it “a crème anglaise” in French!).
      Allow the mixture to cool for 2 minutes then add the Nutella paste. Combine well.
      Pour into an ice cream maker
      No ice-cream maker? Then put the mixture in a freezer-proof container. Put it in the freezer for 3 hours. Stirring well every 30 minutes.
      Best, Sixte

    6. Oh, Sixte, I can't thank you enough. My children licked the bowls clean. They couldn't believe how good it was. I will pass this recipe to my family and friends. Lizzy

    7. I am so happy for your children. I can easily imagine them with their bowls clean. I might put it as a post then. Thank you Lizzy. Sixte

  15. Hi Sixte, the rhubarb ice-cream sounds fun. Is it easy to make, please. Cheers, Ann

    1. Hello Ann. My recipe is really different as I make a whipped cream. But I love the fluffiness of the result afterward.
      350g of fresh rhubarb (trimmed and diced) – 100g of caster sugar – 20cl of crème fraîche – 2 egg yolk.

      Caramelise the rhubarb in a pan with the half of the sugar and a bit of salted butter for 7 minutes.
      In a bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and the remaining sugar.
      Blitz smooth the rhubarb and add it to the eggs mixture. Set aside to cool.
      Take up the crème fraîche in whipped cream.
      Incorporate this whipped cream slowly and carefully to the rhubarb mixture.
      Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and churn.
      No ice-cream maker? Then put the mixture in a freezer-proof container. Put it in the freezer for 3 hours. Stirring well every 30 minutes.
      Hope you will enjoy it! Sixte
