ice cream

Postby Hope » July 20th, 2017, 7:30 am

I was planning on making some custard-based ice cream today, but we've got hardly any milk left. Mr Hope will be buying it on his way home, by which time it'll be too late for me to make.

I have a packet of dried milk. Can I use that instead? (I'm trying to use up cupboard things anyway, so it'd kill two birds if it'd work!)

I don't see why it wouldn't but I haven't tried. Unless anyone says 'don't do it!' there's only one way to find out, but then if it didn't work bang goes a waste of eggs. Are you doing vanilla?

It uses cornflour rather than eggs, so not so much of a waste! And yes, vanilla.

:lol: :?

I mean it's ice cream, surely however it turns out it'll be ok!

Unless anyone says no, I'll give it a try (as long as I don't run out of time/energy!)

I am sure I remember reading that all commercial ice cream is made with powdered milk, lots of recipes online as well

I think it would be fine - but I think powdered milk is usually lower fat than whole milk and thus less creamy. I would be fine with that but some purists wouldn't .

My thoughts exactly!

I have.

I'll try tomorrow. We will have milk then, but I'll still use the powder (which went out of date a week ago!) in the name of not-wasting-food and experimentation!

Good planning Hope.

I just thought...I had to throw away a pint of milk today as three days out of date, not opened it smelt a bit ripe! What a waste. I fancied making ice cream with a couple of eggs that need using. I have a tin of semolina in the cupboard. I wonder if I froze it something ice-creamy would come out of it. I would tip it in a tub with lid first. Common sense is telling me it would work and if it doesn't I could defrost and eat it as if straight out if the tin...

I have put my semolina in the freezer. I reckon it will need a beating with a spoon every so often. Will report back.

Tezza, loads of things you could have used it for ... add lemon juice and make cottage cheese, use it to make scones, pancakes ...

I now feel extra wasteful now. I have some good ideas for some uses next time though thanks and there will be a next time! I like the scones, bread and pancake ideas.

No need to feel wasteful ... just know that if you have the time and can be bothered, you can get some cheap cheese next time it happens, or you can make scones etc ... but don't beat yourself up about it .... sometimes we have better things to do ;)

Too true suffs. Must stir my semolina and have another try. An hour ago it was a bit crystalized but very tasty!

Staying slightly on topic, I have to recommend for ice cream recipes, Nigellas no churn ice cream recipes. Fantastic
