Liquorice Ice-cream
SERVES: 4 PREP: 20min COOK: 30minPRINT CONVERSIONS

I adore liquorice, so many people are divided on it. For those of you that love it, this one is for you.

This recipe was inspired by George Calombaris.


 

You'll Need
  • 2 cups milk
  • 230g soft liquorice sticks, chopped into small pieces
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 115g caster sugar
  • 160ml pouring cream
Method

Place the liquorice and milk in a small heavy based saucepan and heat gently to a simmer (do not boil). Stir to melt the liquorice as much as possible (it won’t melt entirely).

Whisk eggs yolks and sugar together in a large bowl until combined.

Pour a third of the milk and liquorice mixture into the eggs and sugar and whisk.

Add the egg mixture back into the saucepan with the remaining milk and whisk continuously on a gentle heat until starting to thicken.

Add the cream and whisk well. Chill the mixture in the fridge and process in a ice-cream machine as per manufacturer’s instructions.

    I always thought I hated lirorice, but then I dared myself to try licorice gelato in Florence And It Was Magnificent! I wish I had an ice cream maker so I could try this!

    Hannah – of all the ice-creams I've made this one lends itself to hand mixing. To be perfectly honest I would have eaten the custard before I even churned it. It was soooo good. If you need tips o hand mixing your ice-cream let me know. I'd be happy to help. Mish

  3. Not a licorice fan but I love the idea of a licorice ice cream!
