Sheep's Milk Ice Cream, Summer Fruits and Pistachios
- For the ice cream
- 1L sheep's milk (you could use goat’s milk too)
- 12 egg yolks
- 250g sugar
- 1 vanilla pod
- For the nuts
- 1/2 cup toasted pistachio nuts
- 3/4 cup sugar
- Fresh fruit, to serve
Mix egg yolks, vanilla and sugar together in a heavy based pot and then pour in the sheep's milk. Place on the stove on a medium heat. Stir often and cook until it’s silky and coating the back of the spoon.
Pass through a fine sieve and chill. Once cold pour into the ice-cream churn.
Place nuts onto a baking paper-lined tray. Melt and caramelise sugar and pour over the nuts. Leave to cool the smash to crumbs in the mortar and pestle.
The plating of this dish is very random, a few scoops of ice cream, randomly scatter the fresh and dried fruits, flowers and nut praline around the plate.
