How to Make Rose Ice Cream With Fantastic Taste?
Ingredients needed to make the ice cream:
- Two cups whole milk or 2% milk;
- Three cups of heavy cream, which must be separated before cooking;
- One and a half cups of sugar;
- Four egg yolks;
- A pinch of salt;
- One-quarter cup dried roses or 1.5 cups fresh rose petals;
- One tablespoon of cornstarch;
- Two to five tablespoons of rose water;
- Red food colouring (optional).
So, we've covered the ingredients you need to buy, and now we need to tell you how to make rose ice cream from these ingredients.
- Start by heating milk with two cups of heavy cream and roses (you can do it without roses and then add them) and one cup of sugar and salt in a saucepan. Heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
- When the milk begins to bubble, remove it from the heat, cover and leave to simmer for one hour.
- Whisk the yolks of the eggs you separated from the whites, adding sugar and cornstarch until pale and thick.
- Heat the milk to a boil, add a cup and a half of milk and whisk the egg mixture. Repeat the tempering process, and stir the yolks into the remaining milk.
- Set a sieve over a bowl with the remaining cold cream.
- Cook over medium-low heat for a couple of minutes until thickened and almost boiling, then turn down the heat and simmer for another 4-5 minutes until thickened. If you brewed the milk with roses, add two tablespoons of rose water. If not, add four. Strain through a sieve and squeeze out the remaining liquid, then mix with rose water and food colouring (if using).
- Refrigerate the mixture for four hours or overnight, then whisk. If desired, freeze for two hours to harden.
- If you don't have an ice cream maker, transfer the custard to a container and freeze for 4-6 hours, stirring every 15-30 minutes. The texture won't be the same, but the flavour of the rose ice cream will be great!
