Since the last episode of Blueberry Yogurt Ice Cream, I have been waiting to bring myself to make another ice cream. Been browsing and browsing and finally I saw this recipe from the book - Gelato, Ice Cream, Sherbet by Kumiko Yanase.
I borrowed this book frm the library cos I wanna try all the different types of ice cream & sherbet with my ice cream maker. The gelato are much simpler recipe, without eggs & ice cream are with eggs. As for sherbet, I doubt I will try cos no one in the family likes the texture, except maybe my kids. Anything cold, sweet means its yummy!!
The 1st recipe to try was the Salted Caramel, hubby told my gal to remind me to make this for him. Hahah~ I think I promised this when I bought the maker. Did I? I can't remember. Anyway the steps are simple cos I did this process before making the Cookies & Cream ice cream from Browneyedbaker previously. It yields a very creamy and yummy ice cream. I am hoping that this recipe would also yield that, and with the maker to churn, a better texture?
So, I prepared the mixture while my gal was in school. In the process of cooling down, I could let her do the job of pouring into the maker after dinner as a dessert tonight. I guess she is thrilled cos somehow it feels like she made it. Lol~ Simple way to cheer you lil ones at home.
Verdict: It is super yummy, not too sweet with the 'caramel' taste.. The only flaw was I couldn't enjoy straight after churning, I wonder why still soft and slightly runny. So I freeze overnight after churning, whisk it twice within an hour interval to break them up. The next morning, first thing was to check on it. Yummy!! Should really try it..
