Be inspired by ♥ Rosewater And Pistachio Ice Cream

For no known reason my ice creams have stopped tasting good. At first I thought it was the recipe, but after watching Masterchef Australia I have learnt differently. Contrary to the instructions that came with my ice cream maker, do not slowly chill the custard base. This causes it to curdle and will make your ice cream have the most awful aftertaste and texture. I tried this recipe and I am going to use it again as a base for other flavours.

"Rosewater And Pistachio Ice Cream"

Rosewater And Pistachio Ice Cream

Rosewater and Pistachio Ice Cream
  • 290mls milk
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 110g castor sugar - I used fructose
  • 30mls rosewater make sure you buy one for cooking / baking
  • 290mls cream
  • 200g pistachios, shelled and lightly crushed I did not crush them, but think they need to be toasted a bit and then crushed
  1. heat the milk in a sauce pan until it is nearly boiling
  2. while you are doing this, whisk the egg yolks and the sugar until they reach ribbon stage
  3. add half of the milk to the eggs while whisking
  4. pour the mixture back into the sauce pan and whisk in
  5. cook over a moderate heat while stirring all the time with a wooden spoon
  6. take off the heat as soon as it has thickened enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon
  7. remove from the heat and stir in the rosewater and cream
  8. stir in the pistachios and place all the ingredients into your ice cream maker
  9. churn according to the manufacturer's instructions
Cooks Notes
taken from Clicks Magazine issue 1 2010
mine did not freeze but as soon as it was chilled I put the ice cream into a container and put the container into the freezer and it worked perfectly

  2. I’m also addicted although I know who won! (I won’t tell!!) When you do open your books please post on George’s Olive Oil Chocolate Mousse. I never had time to take it down and have not been able to find it. I am intrigued by it and would like to give it a go at some point.

    Hope you having a super week.

    • I love Masterchef Australia! They have just had the second season and I have both the recipe books from the finals. Now I just have to keep them ‘closed’ so I do not see who the winner is :)
