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.
- 2 cups milk
- 230g soft liquorice sticks, chopped into small pieces
- 3 egg yolks
- 115g caster sugar
- 160ml pouring cream
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.
