Red Bean Ice Cream



Red Bean Ice Cream ... another cooling dessert much sought after in my household during this hot, hazy and humid weather.  I was very happy when it 'rained' yesterday but it was short-lived.  The rain wasn't enough even to wet the grass in my garden and I was so disappointed.  So far, there's no water rationing here in Ipoh but I'm sure that all of us will welcome any rain in the near future.





Recipe for Red Bean Ice Cream

    Ingredients

    • 150 gm red bean paste
    • 150 ml milk
    • 300ml whipping cream
    • 50 gm caster sugar
    • 4 egg yolks
    • a pinch of salt
    Method
    1. To make the red bean paste, just boil some red beans with some sugar, once the beans are soft, smash them till fine.
    2. Place milk and cream  in a saucepan, heat gently, once milk starts to foam up a bit, remove from heat.
    3. Using a ball whisk, whisk egg yolks with sugar till  smooth.
    4. Gradually pour the cream mixture into the egg mixture, whisking continuously not to cook the eggs.  Add in 75 gm  smashed red bean paste, mix well.
    5. Pour this back into the saucepan, bring to the boil, add salt, keep stirring till the mixture can coat the back of a wooden spoon.
    6. Pour this into a large bowl, cover with cling wrap.  Let cool, refrigerate overnight.
    7. Churn the mixture in your ice cream maker according to the instructions.  Add in the remaining 75 gm red bean paste just at the end of churning.

  13. Hi, red bean is one of my favourite food & when I was young, I loved to eat red bean ice=cream(made in long rectangle). Recently have been spotted a few ice-cream recipes, just don't have the ice-cream maker at home.

  14. Hi Cheah, I can only admire your ice creams but I can't make them with my 'old' fridge. When I get a new fridge, the first thing I'll do is to make ice cream your way. So many lovely ice cream recipes here that I can follow. Thanks for sharing.

Fried 'Nian Gao' ~ Sticky rice cake ~ CNY 2010

'Nian Gao' in Mandarin or 'Nin Ko' in Cantonese is a must-have item during CNY.  This sticky glutinous rice cake is symbolic as it carries a homonym that sounds like 'year~high/tall'.  For business people eating this will link them to prosperity and wealth and working people will look forward to career advancement, promotion. Slice them up when they're still soft, keep them in containers and they can be stored in the fridge for months. I normally steam and dip them in freshly grated young coconut mixed with some salt or just fry with beaten egg.  But this time around, I've decided to be a bit more 'challenging' and try out Elin's recipe.  Thanks, Elin of  Elinluv's Tidbits Corner   for sharing!

Abalone Soup ~ CNY 2011

Hi, I'm back!  Made this Abalone Soup for the reunion dinner and the soup was really delicious.  Abalone is 'Bao Yu' in Cantonese, 'Bao' sounds like 'guaranteed' and 'Yu' sounds like 'excess' so put together it sounds like 'guaranteed excess'!   Now, that's something to look forward to, to usher in the New Year!  I used fresh abalone and it was my first experience handling this and thought that it would be a daunting task.  Surprisinlgy it was not to be and removing them from their shells and cleaning them weren't that difficult after all.
