The first time I made this Sesame and Liquorice ice cream I knew we were going to be friends, Firstly because it’s a ridiculously easy no churn recipe and is quite unike anything I’ve ever tasted. Made with the usual suspects – condensed milk, cream and vanilla, but then, a generous handful of speckle black seeds combined with lacquered black liquorice syrup. The syrup is almost salty and intensely aniseed-ish, a perfect contrast to the creamy sweetness of the ice cream. Heavenly, in fact.
Toasting the sesame seeds adds a muted nuttiness to the taste. If ‘unusual’ is your favourite flavour, this is definitely worth a scoop. With just 6 ingredients it’s a breezy summer ice cream.
Cook’s Note: I used Lakrids Liquorice syrup.
