Earl Grey Ice Cream

Thought I would share this recipe I found and made when Lyn from Everyday life came to stay.  You can make it without the Earl Grey tea, just omit the tea bag stage.  I don't have an ice cream maker either so I just froze it for 3 hours, then whisked and froze it again.

4 Earl Grey Tea Bags
Few drops of good Vanilla Essence
1 pint full fat milk(600mls) (you can use skimmed or semi skinned )
half pint (300mls) double cream
8 oz (225g) golden caster sugar

Heat the milk to almost boiling and add the tea bags and vanilla essence.  Leave to infuse till milk is cool
Squeeze out tea bags

If you have an ice cream maker, add the milk,  cream and caster sugar and churn until thick.
If not, whisk everything together and freeze in a shallow container, fork through every couple of hours until frozen.

Its fun getting people to guess what the flavour is - nobody has guessed it as yet!

Very nice served with a Brownie!

I drink Earl Grey all the time at home and just love the sound of this ice cream. I've never made it before as I thought it was complicated without a special ice cream maker. I'm definitely going to give it a try.
