Blueberry Summer Solstice yoghurt ice cream

23/06/2016 at 23:56

Ah – Swedish Midsummer is upon us again! As plenty of Swedes prepare for the festivities (typically centred around partying, eating and – definitely – drinking), we, too, will turn to Mother Nature for some blue delights. No, I’m neither referring to Smurfs, melancholic love affairs, or pagan frolicking with forest spirits like the Hulder. I’m talking about blueberries!  Blueberries […]

Summer and – in Sweden – Midsummer! Just in time for the summer vacations, it is high time to get hold of some deliciously tart rhubarb stalks and prepare one of my definitive all-time summer favourites! This recipe remains one of my absolute favourites, and by now I have totally lost track of how many times I have made this truly fantastic ice cream! Rhubarb is usually […]

Ah – vanilla! When prepared in an authentic way (with no cheap substitutes), vanilla ice cream can be absolutely delicious already on its own.

But quark – a tangy, low-fat distant […]

 Saffron, the world’s most exclusive spice, enjoys great popularity in Sweden, particularly around Christmas time. But Christmas times are often quite stressful, and consuming a lot of heavy traditional food can also take its toll. So, in order to keep fit and sound, try swapping some of those delicious saffron buns for a slimmer treat – Saffron frozen yoghurt! I really […]

King Kong Banana Caramel ice cream

King Kong – eater of Banana Caramel ice cream! Implausible? Yes, but not more than Kong himself. I just read that Skull Island, King Kong’s native island home,  would never work, scientifically speaking: There is simply no plausibility in a small and isolated ecological system (the Island), filled to the brim with large, over-grown predators. While these findings did not […]
