Nothing beats homemade ice cream for flavour and the pride factor! Yes you can make this and impress the family with just a bit of simple know how – give it a go, it’s worth it.
- 3egg yolks
- ½cup sugar
- 1 ½cup cream
- 410g can Wattie’s Peaches Sliced in Clear Fruit Juice
- ¼cup Fresh passionfruit pulp (3-4 passionfruit)
Step 1Grease and line the base and sides of a (1 Litre capacity) loaf tin with cling film.
Step 2Whisk egg yolks and sugar together until thick and pale.
Step 3Heat ½ cup of the cream in a saucepan until nearly boiling. Pour over the eggs and sugar mixture and stir constantly. Return custard to the saucepan and stir constantly while heating on low heat until it coats the back of a spoon. Do not allow it to boil as the eggs will scramble. Remove from the heat and pour into a bowl. Place a piece of clingfilm onto the custard to avoid a skin forming and stand until cold.
Step 4Drain Wattie’s Peaches, discarding the juice. Puree peaches in a food processor or blender. Whisk the remaining 1 cup of cream until soft peaks form.
Step 5Stir the peach puree and passionfruit pulp into the cold custard. Fold in the whipped cream. Pour into the prepared loaf pan. Cover with clingfilm and freeze until firm. This will take at least 4 hours.
Step 6To serve, remove from the loaf tin. Allow to sit in the fridge for 10 minutes to soften a little before scooping. Serve with extra peach slices and fresh passionfruit spooned over the top.
