Happy Birthday @Taffycat
All the very best, TC.
Have a great day.
I hope you are having a great day TC HAPPY BIRTHDAY
Thank you all for the birthday greetings, I would invite you all over for cake, but this year, I decided to be different and went for a generous helping of Ben & Jerry's instead! Ice cream with everything in it!
@Abarbarian, what can I say but..... Woo-Hoo!
Oops I missed this one! Belated happy birthday wishes from me! Mmmm Ben & Jerry's
Heehee... it's the one that contains chocolate brownies.
Have you tried making your own Ben and Jerry ice cream before? It tastes surprisingly similar and is super tasty
We have the recipe book. It's dangerous
No, I've not tried doing that - although it sounds super-tasty!
Oh my gosh! I can imagine that it would be... it's funny really, but we both seem to eat more ice cream these days, than we ever did when we were kids! lol
It's not good for you, TC.
You should leave it all for me.
Happy (belated) Birthday Taffycat
Sorry me late, haven't been online much for the past few days
Sounds good to me!
Ian is lactose intolerant (my brother calls it 'lactarded'!) so I sometimes make ice-cream following a B&J recipe using lactose-free cream. You can't tell the difference, and it opens up more variety for him. I had some really yummy blackcurrant ice-cream recently and I want to recreate it sometime!
All this talk of ice-cream is making me hungry...
Being able to adjust the ingredients to suit personal taste, or to cater for any particular food intolerance is so worth it I think.
Do you just freeze your ice cream, or do you prefer to use any kind of ice cream-making machine? (In the distant past, I tried those hand-cranked machines, which required pre-freezing of the mixing bowl. Perhaps I just made an unfortunate choice, but the ones I tried did not work very efficiently - although the ice cream actually tasted really good!)
I have toyed with the idea of getting an electric ice cream maker, but some of them are a bit bulky and we don't have too much space going spare to be honest.
We've got an ice-cream maker - one that has a bowl you freeze, and a unit that sits on the worktop. It's great but it is a bit bulky! We used to have a much smaller one that fit in the freezer, but it was pretty slow.
If you want good results without an ice-cream maker, try a recipe that includes condensed milk. I have a friend who can't eat eggs, and she made some for us once - it was basically just condensed milk and cream, with whichever flavour you want. Best part is that you don't need to churn it Yummy!
Ooh, that sounds like a very good idea, thank you for the tip @Becky.
I'm having ice cream cravings right now after reading that. Sounds damn good!
