Gelato Day

The new house (We'll have been here 2 years come October, can I still call it new?) has brambles in the front garden, so today I'm home from work and so we picked some brambles, and somehow agreed we'd make Bramble Gelato.

So digging out my dad's old machine Gelato Chef 2200 (it would have sounded better as just 2000!) we mixed (stupid amounts of) sugar, brambles and lemon juice together and heated it up until it made a kind of jam, then letting it cool, then mixing will LOTs of cream and milk and mixing.

40 mins later we have this (the child looking longingly at it, is optional)

Anyway the real recipe
  • 500(ish)g of Brambles or Blackberries
  • 150g Caster Sugar
  • 1 Juiced lemon

Heat then Sieve roughly and let cool.

Then add in

  • 450ml Double Cream
  • 100ml Milk

Stir around and then add to your Icecream maker.
