Baileys Chocolate Fudge

Yield: 16.5cm x 26cm pan

INGREDIENTS:

Melted butter, to grease

1 x 395g can sweetened condensed milk

100g butter, cubed

255g (1 1/4 cups) brown sugar, firmly packed

2 tablespoons glucose syrup

150g good-quality dark chocolate, finely chopped

60ml (1/4 cup) Baileys Original Irish Cream liqueur

DIRECTIONS: 

  • Brush a 20cm (base measurement) square cake pan with melted butter to lightly grease. Line base and 2 opposite sides with non-stick baking paper, allowing it to overhang.

  • Combine the condensed milk, butter, sugar and glucose syrup in a medium heavy-based saucepan. Stir over medium-low heat for 3 minutes or until sugar dissolves. Increase heat to medium-high and cook, stirring constantly, for 10-15 minutes or until mixture thickens, turns a caramel colour and leaves the side of pan. Remove from heat.

  • Add the chocolate and liqueur, and stir until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth. Pour into the prepared pan and smooth the surface. Set aside for 1 hour to cool. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 1 hour or until firm.

  • Remove fudge from pan, using the paper to help lift the fudge. Use a sharp knife to cut fudge into 16 equal portions.

Cherry Ice Cream with Chocolate Chips

13

Cherry Ice Cream with Chocolate Chips

Yield : 1 quart

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 1/2 cups pitted ripe sweet cherries (from about 3/4 lb cherries)
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 3/4 cups cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp Amaretto, cherry liqueur, or rum (optional)
  • 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped fine, keep in freezer until used

Directions:

1 Put cherries, milk, one cup of the cream, sugar, and salt into a medium saucepan. Heat on medium heat until the mixture is steamy, then lower the heat to warm and just let sit for about 15 minutes. Remove from heat. Pour mixture into a blender, or use an immersion blender, and carefully purée. (Careful because you are dealing with a hot liquid. Make sure you hold the cap down on the top of the blender while puréeing.)

2 Put mixture into a large bowl. Stir in the remaining 3/4 cup of cream. Chill for several hours in the refrigerator until completely cold. (Can also place bowl over an ice bath, to speed up the cooling process.)

3 Before putting the mixture into your ice cream maker, stir in the lemon juice and the Amaretto or other liqueur if you are using. Note that you can skip the alcohol if you want, but the addition of it will help the ice cream from getting too icy, and the amaretto can add a nice flavor boost to the ice cream. Churn the ice cream in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

4 Once the ice cream has completed churning, the ice cream should be pretty soft. Gently fold in the finely chopped chocolate. Put in an airtight container and place in the freezer for at least an hour, preferably several hours

Peach Sorbet

 

7

Peach Sorbet

Yield : 1 quart

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup minus 1 tablespoon superfine granulated sugar (You can make superfine sugar by pulsing granulated sugar in a food processor several times.)
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon bottled or filtered still water (not distilled)
2 pounds peaches (The original recipe called for 1 1/2 pounds of peaches, however I needed 2 pounds to get 2 cups of puree.)
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon lightly beaten egg white
1 tablespoon vodka or peach liqueur, optional

Directions:

In a small heavy saucepan heat sugar and water, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Cool syrup. Peel and pit peaches. Purée peaches in a food processor until smooth. Transfer 2 cups purée to a bowl (reserving remainder for another use, if you have any) and stir in syrup and lemon juice. Chill peach mixture until cold and up to 1 day.

Stir in egg white and vodka or liqueur (optional) and freeze in an ice-cream maker. Serve sorbet immediately or transfer to an airtight container and put in freezer to harden no more than 3 hours. * If you add the vodka or liqueur you will be able to hold the mixture for longer in the freezer.
