With a Rene Yell, Ice Creamed, More, More, More!!
So a little play on words… and today I played around with a little Rebel Yell Small Batch Reserve Whiskey.
There’s a story to the reason Rebel Yell is Rene Yell to me. And so that’s what I call it.
I’ve used this whiskey in fudge before now, but today I made caramel sauce too. And ice cream that tastes like Mr. Whip Me.
I’ve always fancied making my own ice cream, but the thought of buying a machine, or a fussy recipe, it just plain put me off.
But this one was easy peasy!!
Half a tin of condensed milk
600ml double cream
1 tsp vanilla essence
Bang it in a bowl and whisk till you get a clotted cream consistency. Once mixed, put in a suitable freezer container till set,
Then I wondered about some caramel sauce to drizzle through the ice cream…something soft against the whiskey fudge.
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup double cream
1 tbsp butter
Whisk(e)y (2 tbsps)
Place the sugar in a heavy bottomed pan and heat till caramel achieved (all melted.) This will be bloody HOT!!
Take off heat and stir in the cream. It will bubble and froth. This will be bloody HOT… So, be careful. Put back on the heat till it’s all mixed in.
Add the butter and again, mix till melted.
Next, remove from heat and stir in the whisk(e)y of your choice. Allow to cool.
I served this will camp fire donuts. A little treat which is quick to make (serves 2):
Camp Fire donuts:
Milk to mix into a creamy consistency.
3 slices white bread
Jam (I used the caramel sauce)
Spread both sides of one slice and pop between the other two slices. Cut off the crusts, cut “sandwich” into 4.
Dip in batter.
Lightly fry till golden brown.
Dust with caster sugar.
I don’t by any means have a sweet tooth, a sugar lover would gobble this up in no time. But if you fancy trying it, the recipes are there.
