Fabulous Friday Food: Plum and Earl Grey Tea Ice cream

In celebration of the royal newlyweds I tried to find the most regal recipe I could! And this ice cream flavoured with plums and earl grey from The Telegraph really fits the bill! What could be more English? This is perfect for your dinner party or regal celebration!

I would love to find out what is on the menu at the palace for tonights soiree hosted by Prince Charles - I'm sure its totally fabulous!

The Telegraph

Here's the recipe from The Telegraph

Ingredients

1 Earl Grey tea bag

75ml whipping cream

75g Greek yogurt

Wash the plums, cut them in half and put them, skin-side up, in a wide, shallow pan along with 150ml of water, the sugar and the vanilla pod. Heat to just below boiling point, then reduce the heat, add the Earl Grey tea bag and poach the plums, turning them once, for 15-20 minutes or until they are soft. Remove and discard the tea bag and allow the mixture to cool. Remove the stones from the plums and discard the vanilla pod (or reserve for some other use). Put the plums and their syrup into a blender and purée, then add the cream and the yogurt. Strain, then churn in an ice-cream machine till firm, or follow the still-freezing method. Put the ice-cream in a sealed container and cover the top with waxed or grease-proof paper. Transfer the container to the freezer until needed
 
Happy Weekend everyone!
