Salted Caramel Ice Cream Recipe

Cotswold Fayre have provided this great summer treat recipe. A simple and delicious salted caramel ice cream recipe.

1 1/4 cups sugar, (to use in different steps of the recipe)
2 1/4 cups heavy cream, (again split between different steps)
1 - 1 1/2 teaspoon Maldon salt (or any flakey salt)
3/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup whole milk
3 large eggs

An ice cream maker

First of all you'll want to chill your machine down for around 18-24 hours or as per the instructions of your machine. If you have a fancy machine you may not need to do this step. It is important to note that a couple of the steps do take a few hours as they involve cooling down the mixture so you may want to make this around 24 hours before you intend to eat the ice cream - the wait is worth it though, really!

Get a heavy bottom large saucepan or a wide but deep ish frying pan (non stick is better as you won't want to scrape the bottom). Make sure the bottom is dry as you don't want water mixing with the sugar. 

Over a medium heat - melt the sugar. Stir with a fork to make sure it melts evenly. Swirl it around when it reaches the point where it is melting. When its done it should be a dark amber colour

Be careful as the next step will spatter a little. Mix in 1 1/4 cups of your cream, dissolve and mix it all together. Make sure it mix it well. Move this to a bowl to let it cool. At this point add in your salt and your vanilla and give it a good mix. Let the mixture cool down to room temperature. You don't want to let it get too cool as the mixture will get too gloopy.

While it is cooling, boil then simmmer the rest of the sugar and milk and cream. Make sure it doesn't over boil, and make sure it is mixed well.

In a seperate bowl whisk together your eggs. Pour in the milk mixture while still hot. Do this steadily and slowly and whisk it as you pour. Now move it back to the heat and cook until slightly thick (it should coat the back of a spoon). Check that it is 170°F  if you can (to ensure the egg is cooked through) but don't let it boil.

Use a sieve to filter the custard mixture through. Once the caramel from the first step is cool - add it all together.

Give it a little stir and let it cool in the fridge. You can stir it every so often, it should take around 3-6 hours. Once it is nice and cold, put it into the ice cream maker and follow the instructions. It should lighten in colour and go nice and soft. Freeze and chill in a container in the freezer. This should last for around a week or so (but you'll probably eat it a lot faster!)

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
