Another dairy Shabbat. Yes, the home made noodles and cheeseand pickled salmon and a green salad yet again. The noodles are made and so is the cheese. The salmon can wait until just before Shabbat.
Dessert for this week is white chocolate and orange scented ice cream with mini marshmallows. We were given a hand me down ice cream maker from a neighbor when his old one was replaced. We were given the machine during the time that my in-laws were joining up each Friday night. My mother in law, like lots of demented folks, was just mad about ice cream and wasn't much interested in the rest of the meal. She was nearing the end of her life and food in general, with the exception of ice cream, had very little appeal for her.
Frankly, my mother in law would have eaten almost anything cold and sweet. But I had fun inventing flavors, because what's the point of having your own machine if all you make is vanilla? Some family favorites are fig and pomegranate.
Our trusty ice cream maker
I'm trying to remember where I learned about the roux-less custard. I think that I might have extrapolated the idea from an excellent cocoa syrup recipe from the Settlement Cook Book that is made with water, cocoa flour and sugar all boiled up together.
The ice-cream is a bit too sweet for my taste. I may send my son out for some berries to eat with the ice cream.
