Lickerty-Split Ice-Cream

Make mega fast Ice-Cream with your own Wernham Salty Ice-Cream Tester Tumbler*

We feel sure that you can invent a whole cornet full of flavours worthy of making it onto the Professor Bonker-Lonkas Intergalactic Ice-cream Parlour’s menu but you never know when inspiration will strike. Here’s how to make your very own Wernham Salty Ice-Cream Tester Tumbler so you will be ready when it does.

Here are the things you will need:

For the Wernham Salty Ice-Cream Tester Tumbler:

  • A large freezer bag – or a small bin liner – basically any plastic bag with no holes
  • A smaller plastic freezer bag or zip lock bag
  • Some ice – from the shop or from your freezer (a couple of trays worth) – leave it in the freezer until the last minute
  • A little cold water
  • A few hundred grams of cheapo, bog-standard salt
  • A large tea-towel towel or a small blanket

For the ice-cream:

  • 250mm single cream (get organic – it’s friendlier to the lovely cows who make it)
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar and/ or honey
  • Between 1 and 4 tablespoons of your SPECIAL INGREDIENTS – what is your new flavour? Cocoa? Peanut butter? Strawberries? Frozen peas? Vanilla extract? Crushed unicorn tears?

1

Collect the THINGS YOU WILL NEED
(have a look at the list above)

2

Put the ice-cream ingredients into a jug or bowl and mix them up then transfer them into the smaller bag and seal it up with a knot or the zip (try not to trap too much air in it)

3

Put the ice and the salt and a let’s say half a cup of water into the big bag.

4

Put the smaller bag in with the ice in the larger bag and seal that one up too (again, try not to trap air inside with the ice.)

5

Wrap both bags in the tea-towel (so you don’t freeze your fingers off) and shake, roll and rattle them about for approximately 8 minutes 13 seconds.

6

Extract the smaller bag – its contents should now be quite firm…if not … erm… pop it back into the ice and shake it some more! But once it is firm rinse off the salt and hold the bag over your ice-cream bowl, snip the corner of the bag off and squeeze out the ice-cream.

EAT IT!
