Ok, so I know its not quite the weather for ice-cream, but given that I have received a number of requests from people asking for my recipe for macadamia nut ice-cream following my recent post on activated macadamia nuts, I just have to share this with you. When something tastes this good, who cares about the weather?!?
1 tablespoons vanilla bean powder
5 egg yolks from pastured hens (reserve the whites for omelettes or scrambled eggs)
500g full fat cream
3 tablespoons maple syrup (could substitute raw honey)
120g activated macadamia nuts
Pulse nuts in food processor until roughly chopped. Remove from food processor. Add all other ingredients to food processor and blend until well mixed. Pour into a bowl and stir in roughly chopped nuts. Pour into small glass containers and freeze.
Take glass container of ice cream out of freezer and place at room temperature about 10-15 minutes before serving to soften.
I dare you to stop at one scoop (I couldn't!). Enjoy!
