Electrolux ice cream

Making the most of your Electrolux, Melbourne 1959
Pineapple Ice Cream

½ cup crushed pineapple; ½ cup sugar; 1/8  teaspoon salt; ¼ cup milk; 1 cup cream, whipped

Combine pineapple, sugar, salt and milk.  Fold slowly into whipped cream.  Pour into freezing tray and freeze to desired consistency.  Six small servings.

What I did:  doubled the quantity and froze it in my ice cream machine which churns while freezing.  Also drained the pineapple of juice so as to have a lower water content in the ice cream to avoid a hard or icy texture.

Comment: surprisingly delicious, a good pineapple flavour, not too rich.  Whipping the cream before churning gave it a light, almost fluffy, texture, Ann.

Nice tip Ann, I'll try that. I recently included crushed meringues in an ice cream mixture and that made a crunchy, light texture, Anne.

  1. This sounds very achievable too, especially with an ice-cream maker. Ours sits in the bottom of the freezer all ready to go (but not used as much as it should), so I should try this.
