Wonderful opportunity today to churn a new ice cream with my new neighbour Henny. Using her friend's recipe for black pepper cinnamon and nutmeg ice cream, we added black garlic paste for that special zing. Fresh duck eggs formed the base (fresh from our gorgeous Muscovy ducks) with sugar and cream. Sweet sherry gave a flavour not unlike Christmas pudding - fruity liquor spice and cream
Henny lives in the same valley and had already demonstrated her great ice cream expertise, making blood orange and grand marnier ice cream for a birthday lunch (just gorgeous!). Her expertise was paid in eggs (duck and chook) and we churned our new ice cream together.
The finished product was wonderfully creamy with spice notes and a soft garlic finish - great flavour combination. Next time we might adapt a Neil Perry recipe for Roast Coconut Ice Cream and bring it to life with our favourite black garlic. Come up with your own flavours and please let us know - we would love to hear from you
