     Coffee Icecream

     Coffee Icecream

    INGREDIENTS

    • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
    • 3/4 cup sugar
    • 1 1/2 cups whole coffee beans (decaf unless you want the caffeine in your ice cream)
    • Pinch of salt
    • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
    • 5 large egg yolks
    • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1/4 teaspoon finely ground coffee (press grinds through a fine mesh sieve)

    METHOD

    Heat the milk, sugar, whole coffee beans, salt, and 1/2 cup of the cream in a medium saucepan until it is quite warm and steamy, but not boiling. Once the mixture is warm, cover, remove from the heat, and let steep at room temperature for 1 hour.

    Reheat the milk and coffee mixture, on medium heat, until again hot and steamy (not boiling!). In a separate bowl, whisk the egg yolks together. Slowly pour the heated milk and coffee mixture into the egg yolks, whisking constantly so that the egg yolks are tempered by the warm milk, but not cooked by it. Scrape the warmed egg yolks back into the saucepan.

    Stir the mixture constantly over medium heat with a heatproof, flat-bottomed spatula, scraping the bottom as you stir, until the mixture thickens and coats the spatula so that you can run your finger across the coating and have the coating not run. This can take about 10 minutes.


    Pour the custard through the strainer and stir it into the cream. Press on the coffee beans in the strainer to extract as much of the coffee flavor as possible. Then discard the beans. Mix in the vanilla and finely ground coffee, and stir until cool.

     

    Anzac Biscuits

    Anzac Biscuits

    In honour of our National Day of Remembrance, why not try this Aussie favourite with your next cup of St Remio tea or coffee?

     

    INGREDIENTS

    • 1 1/4 cups plain flour, sifted
    • 1 cup rolled oats
    • 1/2 cup caster sugar
    • 3/4 cup desiccated coconut
    • 150g unsalted butter, chopped
    • 2 tablespoons golden syrup or treacle
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons water
    • 1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda

     

    METHOD

    Preheat oven to 170C. Place the flour, oats, sugar and coconut in a large bowl and stir to combine.

    In a small saucepan place the golden syrup and butter and stir over low heat until the butter has fully melted. Mix the bicarb soda with 1 1/2 tablespoons water and add to the golden syrup mixture. It will bubble whilst you are stirring together so remove from the heat.

    Pour into the dry ingredients and mix together until fully combined. Roll tablespoonfuls of mixture into balls and place on baking trays lined with non stick baking paper, pressing down on the tops to flatten slightly.

    Bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown.
