You’ve heard of four ingredient recipes, right? Let me introduce you to one and two ingredient recipes. The first is a chocolate mousse that only uses chocolate and water and the second is a banana ice cream that only uses bananas.
In the spirit of the shortness of these recipes I will make this quick…
Ever since Sienna started on solids at six months of age she’s had a thing for mango. When she was that little I would let her go to town on the cubes of mango cut from the cheeks. More would slip out of her chubby little fingers and onto the floor than would land in her mouth. Watching the level of concentration required to get just one of those cubes eaten was fascinating and funny to watch. Before long she was asking for more so I’d let her suck on the seed until it either slipped from her clutches or it was denuded of all its orange flesh.
Hello and Happy New Year to you! How was your Christmas break? Did you eat too much?
Despite the bizarre whether of late (18C and miserable rain for days in summer?) there have been several breakthrough days of real summer that have provided the perfect excuse to pull out the ice-cream maker.
I’ve made ice-cream a few times before without a machine – it’s not really that much extra bother. Though, I did once forget to keep mixing a batch as it was freezing and it ended up icy and rough….but we still ate it anyway. This was my first time using a machine and I am so glad I finally have one. Not only is the ice-cream smooth and creamy, but churning is done in about an hour.
