A refreshing summer treat.
|15 ml||lemon juice|
|vanilla — pod, seeds only|
Prepare your ice cream maker as per the manufacturer’s instructions.
Heat the water, sugar and lemon juice in a saucepan over low heat until melted. Stir in the berries and vanilla seeds. Remove it from the heat and use a hand blender to puree it until smooth. Allow it to cool down and then churn it in the ice cream machine. Use it as a soft serve or place it back in the freezer to firm up. Makes 1 litre.
If you’ve mastered the sorbet then a good, creamy ice cream should be next on the list. Most home-made ice creams consist of a custard base and that can then be flavoured with anything from rosewater and chopped nuts to chocolate chunks and Oreo crumbs.
