Yep, after my attempt with the strawberry ice-cream we came to the conclusion that this was just not our thing.
At least not the procedure that was used. I mean I love ice-cream. I love the stuff. And I have been privileged to taste many an interesting flavour. In restaurants and with friends. Some who have a passion for home ice-cream and some that (have) develop(ed) interesting flavours for a living. Anyway it is clear that the vision of an ice-cream maker should become reality at some stage.
SO needed to go into town today to pick up his shirts. Just around the corner from there is the most dangerous store in the Netherlands DOK cookware. Short of the local Apple iCentres it is easily the place where SO and I tend to part with money easiest and without buyers remorse. We are very aware of our general lack of willpower when it comes to this store so we do not enter it lightly. But today we did.
We wanted a simple ice-cream maker. You know something simple nothing fancy or over the top. I did want a dual bowl so that the inner core goes into the freezer not the whole bowl. Not too fond of freezeburn. Well we succeeded to an extent. See the simple one can only make one flavour at a time. So when we saw the twin version we were sold. It has two bowls and both are dual.
So now we have an ice-cream maker. For now it is testing our patience as the bowls need to stay in the freezer at least 24 hours. Planning on ice-cream making for Monday as we are out skating tomorrow. Selected flavours Vanilla and Nutella. For those of you in the know; any interesting suggestions?
