Spellcheck says that yumminess is not a word and that what I really mean is gumminess, crumminess or chumminess. Well I don't, I mean yumminess, or rather Tom does as 'yumminess everywhere' was what he said after supper this evening.
I slow-roasted two small pork shoulder joints.
I pulled off the crackling and broke it into pieces. I shredded the meat with two forks. This is a bit like pulled pork which is popular in the US. I didn't consult a recipe so it is in no way authentic.
We ate it stuffed into rolls with coleslaw and barbecue sauce. Crackling on the side.
Then we moved on to ice cream yumminess. Malteser ice cream.
Malteser Ice Cream
This is a doddle to make as it involves no cooking. I adapted it slightly from the basic ice cream recipe in Ben and Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream and Dessert Book .
In a large jug* beat 2 eggs adding 6oz (170g) sugar (I used vanilla sugar) a little at a time until well blended -about 2 mins.
Add a 16 fl oz of double cream and 8 fl oz of milk. Blend well and refrigerate for several hours so that it is really cold before you pour it into an ice cream maker.
Churn the ice cream for 30-40 minutes. Just before it is ready pour in a 135g packet of Maltesers which you have crushed.
I transfer the ice cream to a plastic container and freeze for a couple of hours as I like my ice cream quite firm.
* Using a jug makes it easier to pour the mixture into the ice cream maker.
Crushed Crunchie bars and Dime bars are also on my list of things to add to ice cream.
I wonder if there is enough left for me to have a sneaky scoop later...
