Orange Blossom Ice Cream
It’s Covid 19 times and we are in quarantine. With extra time on hand I was imagining what could I possibly create out of this ingredient. Spending time in the kitchen is therapy for me so I thought of making ice cream.
The results were exceptional. I also had some oranges which Hubby’s aunt shared with us from her tree. I used the oranges to make a tangy sweet sauce and flavored it with orange blossom water. Perfectly balanced sweet and tart sauce cuts the creaminess of the ice cream making it an ideal pair.
The floral, fruity combination was much loved by my family. In fact my father-in-law mentioned the ice cream was better than the ones available outside. Quite a statement for someone who rarely compliments.

- For the sauce:
- 2 orange segments

For the sauce, puree the oranges in a blender and strain.

Add all the sauce ingredients except orange blossom water in a pan and bring to a boil. Reduce the flame and simmer for 15-20 minutes until the sauce thickens.
Add orange water blossom and let the sauce cool.
Whip heavy cream in a bowl using a hand mixer until light and fluffy about 3 minutes.
Mix the condensed milk gently. Add orange blossom water and white chocolate chips and mix lightly.
Swirl the cooled sauce into the mixture, reserving 3-4 tsp for serving with ice cream. Do not mix well.
Pour the mixture into a metal or glass container (loaf pan 8 x 2 x 2) and freeze for 6-8 hours.
To serve scoop ice cream and serve with reserved sauce on top.
The famous proverb "you are what you eat” as quoted by the French author Anthelme Brillat-Savarin is very true. Food nourishes you from the inside out. Good health is of utmost importance to me. Vegetarianism and Veganism are gaining immense popularity these days. Natural, organic, healthy and homemade is my mantra.
