Every summer, I ponder how to best make good ice cream without an ice cream machine. While idly flipping through the pages of one of my mother’s Swedish foodie magazines, I recently came upon a recipe which seemed worth building upon.

My struggle for smooth, home-made ice cream without an ice cream machine continues! Having tried with honey and cream in earlier attempts, I now considered it appropriate to test with some suitable stabiliser.

In search of “smooth” (II) – the creamy part

Remember my earlier attempt to create “smooth” yoghurt ice cream with the help of honey? Back to the urban civilisation, but still without an ice cream machine, I decided to see whether honest dairy cream would be able to make the crucial difference. While many still-frozen ice cream recipes basically calls for nothing else but cream (when it comes to the dairy part), […]
