Just wanted to let everyone know that this book is no longer in print  :'( :'( (before you all rush off to try and buy it from your consultant!!)

HO are supposedly redoing the festive book and I would presume that these recipes will make it into the next book - I hope in time for next Christmas.  :)

Just wondering if anyone has made the Panforte Ice Cream on Page 30 of the version I have of this book?

I would like to give it a go but I have an ice cream maker so the recipe needs a bit of adapting.

Would be interested in hearing if anyone else has converted it for use in an ice cream maker.

That's a tricky one Asha. It sounds delicious though.
I wonder why one lot of mix is frozen and then more added?
My version would be to do the cooking bit as they suggest, add the first lot of mascarpone and set aside. I would put it into the fridge to cool at this point.  i wouldnt proceed intil it was cool. Then chop the almonds and set aside. Next mix the cream and mascarpone as they say, and stir it into the first icecream mix.  I would then put all of the icecream mix in to churn. When it is near the end of churning I'd add the fruit and almonds.

Someone else may have some helpful ideas. I think you need to chill the first custard before adding the cream and mascarpone that will possibly lighten the mixture.

Thanks cookie 1.

Yes that is what confused me about this recipe.  I'm not sure what the reasoning is behind the method that is used.

Your method makes sense so I might give that a go and see how it turns out.  I'll let you know what the result is!

If it's a success it might make it on to the Christmas Day dessert menu.

After looking at the recipe I thought I might make it too.

Did you end up making it cookie1?

I made it last week and it worked really well using your method.

I made a couple of slight changes - I used a packet of toasted slivered almonds so I didn't need to chop these.

I also used a 200g bag of mixed peel as the candied fruit.

I put the custard mixture and the first lot of mascarpone in a jug in the freezer for an hour.  I then whipped the cream and the second lot of mascarpone and then added the cold mix from the freezer back to that and mixed for 30 seconds on Speed 8.  It probably didn't need to be on that high as my mixture wasn't frozen but it definitely made sure there were no lumps.

I then split the mixture into two halves of 750ml each as there was about 1.5l of mixture and my ice cream maker only does 1l at a time.  Because of this I also split the almonds and mixed peel in half as well.

I then put the first batch through the ice cream maker and added half the almonds and mixed peel when the machine flashed that it was time to add the mix-ins followed by the same method for the second batch.

I'm happy to report that the ice cream worked very well.  It had a nice flavour and will go well with Christmas Pudding which is what I am going to make another batch for to have on Christmas Day. 

Thanks for all your help cookie1!

No I didn't Asha. I have the ingredients ready to go. I am so glad it worked well for you. I will have to make it before the ingredients die in my fridge.  :-\
