The fact that it is Heritage Day, or more popularly known as Braai Day on Saturday has kind of passed me by but luckily this No Churn Passion Fruit Lime Ice Cream is bang on for your barbecue this weekend.
I say luckily because I have not had the time to really think about a new recipe specifically for a day that celebrates the South African braai (barbecue). And to be frank I don’t think I can do anything better than this Gourmet Stuffed Braai Loaf :
Layers of mozzarella and cheddar cheese, roasted tomatoes, peppers and onions baked inside a homemade bread dough take the “braai broodjie” to a whole other level and is so worth making for your next day around the braai.
This recipe came about out of the need to use an opened tin of condensed milk. I had the open tin which I photographed for a Food and Home Entertaining shoot and was not going to drink it out of the tin (!) and did not want to throw it away. I remembered that I had some granadilla (passion fruit) pulp, a tub of cream and lime zest in the freezer and made this quick ice cream. It is quick, easy and super delicious with all the aromatic tartness of the passion fruit working so well with the lime in a very creamy mix.
I whipped the cream, added the condensed milk and then stirred in the passion fruit, zest and a pinch of salt. And then just froze it. It can not get any easier I think and bonus that you do not need an ice cream maker. I always add a good pinch of salt to a sweet recipe – it adds depth to the flavours.
Here are a few more of my favourite recipes that will work great with a barbecue : Pork Belly Kebabs, Peri Peri Chicken, Strawberry Sangria, Caramel Popcorn with Coffee Salt and Beer Marinated Chicken Thighs. Have a lekker braai next weekend!
