About four years ago, I paid £10 for a second-hand electric ice cream churn. It's probably the best £10 I have ever spent. When it eventually stops working, it's one appliance I shall replace without any question. Making ice-cream at home is considerably less expensive than buying decent ... Read review

Basic Recipes for Churning

AdvantagesInexpensive, delicious, reasonably easy, control over ingredients

DisadvantagesMake too much and you could put on weight

"...Here are some basic recipes for each, which can be adjusted to suit different tastes, with a few variations. Sometimes it won't turn out quite like you expected - I've had some unaccountably so hard that we almost needed a pickaxe to cut into them, and some a little bland. Sometimes they're too sweet, sometimes not sweet enough. But none of these are serious problems; serve with fruit or with pouring sauces to complement them, or leave them to ..." Read review

A Title That Is Short And To The Point

AdvantagesYummy, cheaper than shop-bought, easy, no nasty additives.

DisadvantagesSome are fattening, some are tooth-rotters!

" Mmm… frozen desserts. For ice creams, you'll have to refer to my previous opinion. Today, we're doing sorbets and frozen yoghurts. You won't need an ice cream maker for any of these, nor any fiddly gelatine or any other clever ingredients. And what's more, they're all easy peasy, nicer than anything you can buy in the shops, and cheaper too! ● STRAWBERRY ICED YOGHURT SORBET ● This is one for the dieters amongst you. There's only ..."

Red Nose Ice Cream

AdvantagesYummy yummy yummy!!!!

DisadvantagesQuite fattening

"Red Nose Ice Cream. This is a favourite recipe of mine. If you make any please add a small donation on Red Nose day. It's so simple to make and takes no time at all and unlike ordinary ice cream you do not need to keep stirring it when freezing. Ingredients: 1 pint Double cream 1 can condensed milk (standard size) Several generous glugs White rum 3 tablespoons desiccated coconut 130g (half a tub) glace cherries, chopped Method: 1) ..."

Do the Meringue. Not the Dance.

AdvantagesIt's summer

DisadvantagesWasps, y'know

"This is my own invention, you know. It's an Iced Strawberry-coffee-meringuey-cream beautiful thing. Or, if you'd rather, 'cheat's ice-cream sundae', and, if we're being honest: ' What do you really want to eat for supper in this weather?'. Why do you need to know about this recipe? It's hot. Bet you'd noticed that one. Very hot. Now, this is good, because it means that we all get tans, and can prance around fanning ourselves, chatting, paddling, ..." Read review
