Ice Cream and Sorbet

This article from The Scotsman talks about ice creams and sorbets.

Granny Smith sorbet

• 750g sugar
• juice of 1 lemon
• 1.5kg of peeled Granny Smith apples, chopped or coarsely grated

Bring the sugar and lemon juice slowly to the boil with a litre of water, then allow to cool. Blend this syrup with the apples in a liquidiser, then tip into a sorbetier or ice-cream machine and churn until firm.

Parmesan ice-cream

Serve with a glass of grappa and some grapes.

• 200g freshly grated parmesan
• 300ml double cream

Place cheese and cream in a saucepan and, over a low heat, melt the cheese into the cream, stirring for four to five minutes, until smooth. Remove and cool. Churn the mixture in an ice-cream machine if you have one. Otherwise, spoon it into a freezer container and freeze, removing to whisk every hour, until firm.

Raspberry Ice
Great with a spash of Grenadine

• 450g fresh raspberries (or frozen raspberries, thawed)
• 100g caster sugar
• 150ml water
• juice of 1 lemon
• 1 egg white

Purée the raspberries and sieve, discarding 75% of the seeds. Put the sugar and water in a saucepan and stir over a gentle heat until the sugar has dissolved. Turn up the heat and boil fast for five minutes, until it becomes a sticky syrup.

When the syrup has cooled, mix it with the fruit purée, reserved seeds and lemon juice. Freeze in an ice-cream maker for 20 minutes or place the mixture in a bowl in the freezer until it begins to freeze around the edges. Whisk the egg white and fold into the part-frozen mixture. Return the sorbet to the freezer until fully frozen.
