Dried Apricot Ice cream

Posted by Bee & John on October 26, 2011 at 2:40 AM

Of course you have to like apricots to like this icecream - but if you do.... WELL worth making.

The recipe is from Taste.com.au website and I will give you the link in a bit... after I have given you some rather major changes to the advice given on the site.

First of all - This is easy and yum!  Make it!

Secondly - The advice given is to let freeze for 2 hours and then she used her ice cream machine?  WHAT?  I don't want to seem rude... but you have a Thermomix!!  Chuck out your icecream machine!

MY ADVICE: (and what worked very well for me) is - let mixture freeze for 6-10 hours until quite firm but not frozen solid.  Using a spoon, put the almost frozen mixture back in the Thermomix bowl and blend for 10-20 seconds on speed 9.  Then put back into the container and put in the freezer.  it stays soft and scoop-able.

Now - here's the link :-)  

LESSON: The apricots were still a bit "bitty" if only blitzed for 4 seconds after cooking.  I suggest going longer until you get a smoother paste.
