"Raw" ice cream

I have just made ice cream and have suddenly realised that I forgot half the custard making stage, ie the part where you actually cook the egg yolks/sugar/milk mixture.

The ice cream is delicious, but is it going to kill us? The eggs were lion-stamped, in date, free range and organic, if that makes any difference to how quickly I might keel over.

It's surely just like frozen mousse
Will be delicious I reckon

Yes, it will kill you. You should immediately give it to me for "disposal".

You would die happy, nocake! It is coffee-flavoured (after a sad accident where I got distracted and burnt away to nothing the gently simmering blackcurrants I had planned to use) and triumphant.

I always make my ice cream raw. It's yummy and I'm still here. Offered it to a pregnant friend recently, forgetting the raw eggs rule and she couldn't resist it. They are our own eggs though so I knew they were fresh and free range. Don't worry about it.

My favourite ice-cream recipe from the ben & jerry book contains raw eggs. If you would be happy to eat the eggs poached/boiled with runny yolks then the ice-cream is really no different. Obviously try not to offer to pregnant, immunocompromised etc etc.

I wouldn't give it to children, looks like you'll have to eat it all yourself, what a shame!
