Ingredients

  • 1 cup shelled hazelnuts
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp hazelnut liquor

Instructions

  • Pre-heat the oven to 150ºC/300ºF.
  • Tip the hazelnuts on a lined baking sheet and roast for 10-12 minutes until golden brown.
  • Meanwhile pour the milk, cream, half of the sugar(1/4 cup) and the salt into a heavy based sauce pan.
  • Bring to a simmer and then heat gently for 6 minutes. Once hot and combined, remove from the heat and set to once side.
  • Once the hazel nuts are roasted allow them to cool for 2 minutes and then whilst they are still warm rub them in a clean t-towel or dish towel to remove the skins.
  • Tip the hazelnuts, remaining brown sugar (1/4 cup) and the liquor into a food processor and whizz until you have a smooth paste. This will take quite a while (about 4 minutes)
  • Scrape all of the hazelnut paste into the cream mixture and place it over a low heat.
  • Simmer for 5 minutes until the paste has dissolved.
  • pour the mixture into a bowl or jug and allow to cool. (or place it in your ice cream maker if your model allows for hot liquids)
  • Once the cream mixture is cold, pour it into the bowl of your ice cream machine and churn according to manufacturer’s directions.
  • Serve immediately as soft scoop or freeze until needed.
  • Remove from the freezer for 5 minutes before you want to serve it.
