Ingredients

  • 100g shelled pistachio
  • 150ml milk

    One of the most widely used ingredients, milk is often referred to as a complete food. While cow…

  • 100g golden caster sugar
  • 300ml double cream
  • 300ml ready-made custard
  • ½ tsp almond extract

Method

  1. Reserve a quarter of the pistachios and finely grind the remainder in a food processor. Tip into a pan with the milk and sugar, and bring gently to the boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Remove from the heat, leave to cool, then chill.

  2. Finely chop the reserved pistachios. Whip the cream to soft peaks. Fold in the custard, almond extract and then the nut milk until evenly mixed. Churn in an ice cream machine or put the bowl in the freezer until the mixture is set 5cm in from the edges. Remove and whisk to break down the large ice crystals. Freeze and whisk again, then transfer to a rigid container and scatter with the chopped pistachios. Freeze completely until firm.

  3. Half an hour before serving, transfer the ice cream to the fridge to soften.

When do you add the almond extract? Or the remaining chopped pistachios? Completely missed out of the instructions.

Thanks for your question. The chopped pistachios go in with the milk and sugar in step one. The remaining pistachios are scattered on top of the ice cream during the freezing process. The almond extract was omitted from the recipe method and we've now added this. It goes in along with the custard in step two. We apologise for the omission and hope you enjoy the recipe.
