This is the recipe you didn’t know you need. It’s the only apple pie ice cream recipe you will ever need, even when you don’t know you need an apple pie ice cream recipe
My inlaws arrived on Sunday for ten days and that meant one thing on Saturday: menu planning. I need to be ahead of the game this week as there is SO much happening. GCSEs, an airport pick up at 1am on Sunday morning, a birthday party for 70+, Eurovision on Saturday night (don’t pull that face, come on you know you will be following what is going on) , Mr B turning 50 and that trip to Buckingham Palace. And three meals a day to think about, with dinner every night for six. It really is full on this week.
On Sunday I did an easy roast pork recipe as I can’t really bugger up a roast dinner and know it pleases most people who dare to sit at the kitchen table. It is one of the few things I can cook. And now I have Yorkshire Puddings nailed (what? Yorkshires with pork? Yes. We have Yorkshire pudding with every roast dinner. What of it) I decided to make apple sauce to go with the pork. You know, try and really show off to the in laws and make them think I can really look after their son. The recipe is from Alex Hollywood‘s recipe book and couldn’t be more simple (if you don’t have her recipe book “My Busy Kitchen” you really should buy it, it’s fab). Apples, butter, water, in the microwave, job done. Even I couldn’t cock up that one.
Except I did on quantity. And six cooking apples for six of us was probably a bit over the top. So we had a stack of left overs. Like five huge apples worth of left overs.
“Can you make apple ice cream?” muttered Mr B. Well yes I can actually, thanks to our Sage Ice Cream Maker (and any excuse to have the ice cream van tune play when it is finished)

Served with warm apple crumble it is delicious. And a great way to use up that left over apple sauce
