Have you ever made ice-cream?


I actually have! Although, I can’t remember exactly how, or why or when, apart from that it was when I was about 10, how terrible is that! All I remember is being incredibly impatient for the damn thing to freeze! I remember my mum putting the ice cream liquid mess into an old quality streets tin and being disgusted! I also remember the ice-cream being much yellower then I expected and breaking off in little, soggy chunks rather than nice, smooth scoops! I also remember it being pretty bland – the same skills reflect in my cooking today!!
