I found a recipe in the Cranks Bible (my favourite cookbook) for rosewater and fig ice cream, but when it came to it last night I couldn't face making custard, or whipping it out of the freezer every hour to beat it, so I turned back to an old favourite Nigella recipe and messed with it. Gordon Ramsey it is not but if you love rosewater ohhhh it's good!
Easy rosewater and fig ice cream
300 ml double cream
90g icing sugar
1 tbsp rosewater (or less if you are not a rose freak)
a handful of soft dried figs, chopped small.
Whip the cream with the sugar and rosewater till it holds soft peaks. Stir in the chopped figs. Pour into a plastic box and stick it in the freezer.
Ideally ripen it in the fridge for about 10 mins before eating, but I've just scraped out a spoonful and it's fine by me just from the freezer.
Warning: You will gain at least 3 pounds just by looking at this.
