Pomegrante dessert

Pomegranate Ice Cream

I love pomegranates, the surprise of the beautiful jewel like seeds inside, red and shiny, perfectly even in size and so juicy. Sweet and sharp at the same time, perfect for ice cream. You can buy them pretty much everywhere now and for ease you can buy just the seeds but I dislike throwing away the plastic containers the seeds come in and there is something satisfying about cutting through the leathery skin of a pomegranate and revealing the seeds inside so I always prefer to buy them whole in their own biodegradable case. I clearly remember the first time I ate a pomegranate, I was seven and Mrs Parkins, my teacher brought some into school for us to try. We picked out the seeds with cocktail sticks. So here is a recipe for Pomegranate ice cream, which we could call Parkins Pomegranate Ice Cream in her honour.

Recipe Notes

Pomegranates do splatter everywhere as you take the seeds out and I have found the best way to reduce the splattering is to put a bowl in the sink, cut the pomegranate into quarters and then holding the quarter skin side up, in both hands, over the bowl, push down with your thumbs and then pull the seeds out with your fingers. Hopefully most of the splatter will end up in the sink that way rather than over worktops and walls!

Method
  1. Cut the pomegranates into quarters, remove the seeds and pick out any pith. Put 4 tablespoons of seeds to one side and blitz the rest of the seeds in a food processor to release the juice.
  2. Strain the juice into a bowl through a sieve to separate the juice from the pulp and seeds.
  3. Zest your lemon and squeeze it, you need 2 teaspoons of lemon juice.
  4. Put 150ml of your pomegranate juice into a saucepan with the zest of half the lemon and 2 tsp of lemon juice, add your sugar and cream. Stir to help dissolve the sugar and bring to the boil.
  5. Turn down the heat and simmer for 3 minutes.
  6. Strain your mixture through a sieve into a jug. Leave to cool, then chill.
  7. When chilled, churn in your ice cream machine until firm enough to scoop.
  8. Transfer to a freezer proof container and stir through 2 tablespoons of the pomegranate seeds you kept to one side.
  9. Scoop into bowls or glasses and serve straight away, scattering the remaining pomegranate seeds over the top of your ice cream or freeze and enjoy later.
