I invested in an ice cream maker eight years ago while living in America, so I could make one of my favorite (but hard-to-find) ice cream flavors: green tea. Since then, I've not only tried many different flavors but have upgraded to a proper professional machine. Because you can never have too much ice cream, particularly in the midst of a London heatwave!
The gooseberry recipe is from The Best of Modern British Cookery by Sarah Freeman, which I bought for 10p from the library sale cart a few weeks ago. First dibs on sale books: a definite perk of eating lunch in the library garden!
