Now being a proud owner of an icecream maker (freecycle) and having made the most delicious apple icecream,
what unusual icecream flavour would be best for christmas?
I was thinking vanilla with some brandy in, but MIL avoids alcohol so perhaps need non-alcoholic alternative
Any suggestions, am salivating already in anticipation.....

something with cinnamon and raisins maybe?

Christmas Pudding flavour

Mince Pie flavour (mix mincemeat into vanilla)

Rum & raisin?

Um, no alcohol...whjat about a Christmas pud flavoured one? Sounds gross, but I had a nice version of this a few years ago.

Something with with a bit of spice? or dried fruit?

Rum and raisin, but not sure if rum essence is actually alcoholic.

I think christmas pud flavour would work very well
How did you do it?
And also like rum and raisin

I make a yummy cinnamon icecream.

DarrellRivers Sun 02-Nov-08 17:26:40

And so the mince pie flavour is just mincemeat stirred into vanilla?
Has anyone made this ?
Gingerbread ice cream sounds christmassy too

Rum & Raisin

DarrellRivers Sun 02-Nov-08 17:28:12

Well I at least now have too many options
christmas pud
rum and raisin perhaps not quite christmassy enough

I'll just have to forget the maincourse and make all icecream courses instead

This might not help, but DH gets vanilla ice cream, puts it in a blender with christmas pudding, then puts it in a chirstmas pudding bowl and refreezes it.

Chocolate ice cream is the only flavour as far as I am concerned!

DarrellRivers Sun 02-Nov-08 17:31:37

I think it would improve christmas pudding no end to be made into icecream LS
I can usually only manage a teaspoon
Hmm, wonder how the DCs would take it (the die hard traditionalists )

Dior, MIL would definitely love that flavour, she has a secret never-ending supply of thedarnthings quality streets

DarrellRivers Sun 02-Nov-08 17:33:51

And no suggestions so far of brussel spout flavoured icecream grin

Delias' Iced Christmas Pudding with Glace Fruits - yes it is from the St Delia Christmas book.
