Orange Milk Ice Cream
As the name suggests, this ice cream is made using milk - full fat and condensed, rather than cream and eggs. Remember that if your ice cream maker doesn't have a built in freezer, you will need to freeze your bowl for at least 12 hours before use.
- 3 litres full fat milk
- 2 teaspoons finely grated orange rind
- 180g condensed milk (Thermomix owners can make their own)
- 15g liquid glucose
- Orange extract, to taste (I use Sainsbury's Taste the Difference Valencian Orange Extract)
- Place a bowl of cold water into the freezer for about an hour - the bowl should be large enough to hold the bowl in which you will be mixing the ingredients
- Bring the milk to the boil with the orange rind in a saucepan and keep on the heat until you are left with about 1.1 litres.
- Meanwhile, mix the condensed milk and the glucose in a bowl.
- Once the milk has reduced, stir it into the bowl.
- Cool the mixture as quickly as possible, by putting the bowl inside the one that you have placed in the freezer.
- Mix in the orange extract, a little at a time until it is to your taste. However, remember that once frozen, the orange taste will be less pronounced.
- Once the mixture is cooled, put it in the fridge to chill further. This is optional, but preferable if your ice cream maker is one without a built freezer, ie where you need to freeze the bowl before use.
- Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer's instructions - it should still be slightly soft.
- Transfer to a container and freeze until required.
