Ginger and lingonberry are a match made in dessert heaven and this recipe is a great way to use up that jar of lingonberry jam you may have purchased on a whim at a certain flat-pack furniture store. I appreciate that not everyone has an ice-cream maker – using thick condensed milk and whipped cream is a great way to get the same creamy texture achieved by a machine. The condensed milk is very sweet, so do taste your mixture to make sure you get the balance right – add more ginger if you find it needs it. If you don’t have any lingonberry jam to hand, you can use cranberry.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
500ml double cream
1 thumb fresh ginger, peeled and roughly chopped
400g canned condensed milk
1 stem ginger ball, finely chopped, plus 2 tsp syrup
3 tablespoons lingonberry jam

Method

  1. Heat the cream in a large saucepan, but don’t let it boil. Add the roughly chopped fresh ginger and allow to infuse for 1 hour or so until completely cool. Strain into a large bowl and discard the ginger.
  2. Combine the condensed milk with the stem ginger and syrup in another large bowl. Whip the ginger-infused cream to stiff peaks, then add a generous spoonful to the condensed milk. Stir to lighten then gently fold in the remaining cream until well combined. Add 1 tablespoon or so of water to the jam and mix until syrupy.
  3. Transfer the ice-cream mixture to a freezerproof container and swirl through the jam (a knife is a good tool for this), making sure to get all the way down to the bottom. Freeze for at least 6 hours, then bring up to temperature about 20 minutes before serving in scoops.
