Recipe For Olive Oil Ice Cream

Willow Creek Olive Estate recently extended their range of flavoured olive oils and they sent me a bottle of the Persian Lime Olive Oil to try out. This award winning olive oil is so heady with lime that I am absolutely in love with it. Willow Creek recommend searing some tuna in this oil, but I wanted to think a little bit outside of the box and so I created a recipe for an olive oil ice cream using this flavour. The lime was so refreshing in the heat of summer, and despite the ice cream using olive oil as an ingredient it was not fatty at all. I have also marinaded some olives in the Persian Lime Olive Oil, together with some indigenous rosemary, garlic flowers and garlic cloves.

Olive Oil Ice Cream
 
Ingredients
  • 250mls milk
  • 250mls cream
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 85g sugar - I used fructose
  • 60mls olive oil
Method
  1. Place the milk and the cream into a sauce pan and bring up to blood temperature over a medium heat
  2. Whisk the egg yolks and sugar until they are at a ribbon stage
  3. Pour half the milk mixture onto the eggs, whisking all the time
  4. Return the egg mixture to the milk, and stir continuously until a custard forms
  5. Remove from the heat, pour into a jug and refrigerate overnight
  6. Stir in the olive oil and churn until thick
  7. Place into a freezer proof container and freeze for at least 4 hours

  23. That’s a very clever way to use olive oil. Does it have a strong olivey taste? Or is it more limey?

    1. It was more limey than olive oil – I would use any of the infused olive oils rather than a plain one 🙂
