There can be few as fun an activity for the kids than whipping up a delicious creation within the kitchen. At Feather Grey our personal favourite is ice cream, where all manner of crazy flavours can be whipped up and bowls can be finished with delicious toppings of fruit and jam.
So with this in mind here we present an easy to follow kids guide to no churn homemade ice cream.
- 4 Eggs
- 100g (3 ½ Oz) Caster sugar
- 300ml (½ Pint) Double cream
- 100g (3 ½ Oz) Stem Ginger, chopped up and added through 4 Tablespoons.
- 150ml (5fl Oz) Raspberry puree (sieved); this can also be applied for strawberry flavour.
- 1 Tablespoon of vanilla extract.
THE STEP BY STEP HOW TO
1. Begin by whisking just the egg whites in a bowl until they form the famous stiff peaks which can be held above the head (perhaps give this a little testing yourself before the kids end up with egg white hair!).
2. Slowly add the caster sugar in by whisking it through the mixture; continue to whisk until the egg whites become stiff and glossy.
3. Pour the cream into a separate bowl and whisk until the cream forms soft peaks.
4. Fold the egg yolks into the cream, along with your flavouring. Mix well.
5. Finish by pouring the mixture into a plastic container and freezing for two hours, minimum.
A FEW LAST IDEAS...
For making your ice cream all the more delicious! Jelly
If there’s one childhood pairing that makes for delicious memories it’s ice cream and jelly, and the ice cream flavours within this guide make for perfect pairings with the following jelly flavours:
Ginger: Vanilla and Citrus (so lemon or orange jelly).
Raspberry: Vanilla, Blackcurrant or Lemon jelly.
Vanilla: Summer fruits, Blackcurrant, Lemon, Orange and just about any other jelly flavour that you can imagine!
The ice cream flavours within this guide can be complimented perfectly with strawberries, raspberries, tangerines, grapes or apples.
What’s more chopping these fruit, or chopping anything for that matter, needn’t be a tense time of watching out for knife knicks. Just follow these tips for safe chopping...
1. Be sure to be cutting upon a board that is completely secure.
2. Hold the knife handle with one hand, with the last third of the knife (non sharp side) being pressed to create a rocking action that will cut the ingredients.
3. Remove the knife from the vicinity once the ingredients are all chopped and prepared.
Last tips: Take it slow and steady and be sure to only undertake this with children of a suitable age who are always supervised.
