Always a great sign: The cranes are flying back north. We have missed their loud calling.
As spring is here now, I tried to make ice cream and it worked out fine! Even without an ice machine.
I used a slightly moderated recipe from Matthew Evans "The real food companion".
If you want to try it, you won't regret, I think.
300 ml whipping cream
3 eggs (seperated)
60 g treacle
50 g maple syrup
1 pinch of salt
Whisk the cream til soft peaks form. Mix the treacle and the egg yolks til well combined. Add it to the cream and stir well. Whisk the egg whites til soft peaks form, add the maple syrup and the salt. Slowly add the egg white to the cream and stir well.
Put into a container and into the freezer. After about an hour, take it out again and stir well. Put it back for another 3-4 hours. Enjoy! :)
What else was I doing during the last days?
Making art of course. Nothing special, but my ever continuing journal journey.
More kitchen and cooking stuff of course, like spelt buns...
Or colourful smoothies...
Looking back on times we had cats. (We have lost so many cats over the years now, that I really can't stand having one anymore, but of course I miss it, especially in spring, when the hayloft used to be filled with kittens.)
Have a great time, everyone!
