Nectarine & Mascarpone Ice Cream

Roskilly farm back in Cornwall make the most amazing ice creams and my favourite of theirs is Orange & Mascarpone. It is so creamy and refreshing I can’t resist it if I see that flavour in the display freezer. I adore nectarines and eat as many as possible during their short summer season so thought nectarine & mascarpone ice cream was a way to prolong the nectarine consumption. I used David Leibovitz’s Peaches and Cream recipe as inspiration and created possibly the creamiest ice cream known to man…….and I wonder why I have gained a few pounds since starting the blog?!?

Nectarine and mascarpone ice cream

Makes approx 1 litre
Ingredients
600g ripe nectarines
120ml water
120g caster sugar
100g mascarpone
300g double cream
a few drops of lemon juice

Cut the nectarines with a cross on the bottom and place in a bowl. Pour over boiling water and leave the nectarines for 5-10 minutes until the skin starts to peel away. Drain and refill with cold water and leave to cool until you are able to handle them and remove the skins.

Cut into chunks over a nonreactive saucepan and discard the stones. Cook them with the water over a medium heat, covered, stirring once or twice, for about 10 minutes or until soft and cooked through.  Remove from the heat, stir in the sugar and lemon juice then cool to room temperature.

Puree the cooked nectarines and any liquid in a blender or food processor with the cream and mascarpone until almost smooth but slightly chunky.

Chill the mixture thoroughly in the refrigerator, then freeze it in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

Cooking Sustainably

Cooking sustainably is making a choice to cook in a low impact way, a simple way, with low waste and low energy. There are many interpretations of sustainable food, and here I only focus on ways that we as individuals can make a difference with our choices.
