Luscious Homemade Fresh Lemon Curd Icecream

Another beautiful day here – I was up silly early and thought I would use up some of the Lemon Curd I made this week and make Lemon Curd Icecream ๐Ÿ˜œ

Hubby bought me an Automatic Icecream Maker for Christmas, this isn’t a sponsored post, just showing you my ‘toys’ ๐Ÿ˜‰, I love a gadget, he bought it from Amazon, Linkย it’s a Cuisinart,ย one of those with its own compressor, so no prefreezing needed ๐Ÿ‘ย on the down side, it is big, about the footprint of a microwave, I am lucky, we have a large kitchen with plenty of workspace, if you have a smaller kitchen, it might be an issue.

This is a simple, but delicious Icecream – I adore Lemon in anything and wear a very well known citrus perfume, its the smell of summer for me. You can use shop bought, but here is my Thermomix Homemade version, you will have a load of egg whites to use, so Meringues are the perfect accompaniment ๐Ÿ˜‡

Lemon Curd

8 egg yolks, 200g butter, 130g sugar, 100ml lemon juice and zest of 2 lemons

Pop all of this into the Thermomix bowl and cook at speed 3, heat 80 for 12-15 minutes depending on how thick you want it. Pour into sterile jars and when cooked, pop into the fridge. This makes about 2 standard jars, and should be used with 10 days or so.

Pop into the Icecream maker bowl and switch on for 40-50 minutes depending again on how thick you want it – I like to do it for 45 minutes, stirring in some additonal Lemon Curd for the last 5 minutes so it’s a Lemon ripple ๐Ÿ˜Š

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
