    Dont have an icecream maker and cant get rid of the crystals that keep forming. Had this at a friend's house and make it for most parties now (its not low cal but doesnt have the strange things that go into bought icecream and I serve tiny portions :)

    1 tin evaporated milk
    1 tin condensed milk
    1 400ml carton double cream
    Half a small pot of saffron threads mixed throughly with around 50ml of milk (until the threads lose their red colour)

    Blend all together for a minute and freeze. No crystals thankfully.
    Can substitute saffron with any chopped nuts or a favourite with my family is half a tin of mango pulp.

    Hi guys, I picked up an ice cream maker today from Boots. It's a Baileys branded one. Has anyone bought and/or tried it out? It looks sturdy enough and was only £12.50.

    I'm dying to have a go but our freezer is absolutely stuffed with meat and bargain Viennetta (69p from Aldi!) so we'll have to do a bit of scoffing first.

    I have just been given a Koolatron Deluxe Double Treat ice cream maker :T
    It is the sort that you put the whole thing in the freezer, it runs on batteries with two bowls and the paddles churn it.

    Now i just need some ideas for recipes.

    Thanks

    Real ice cream is made from cream, eggs and sugar. Why make your own out of processed stuff?

    Try this one :)
