Many say that the first Ice Cream is credited to Emperor Nero of Rome. It was a mixture of snow, nectar, fruit pulp and honey.

Nowadays, all sorts of things are put into mass produced Ice Cream - have a look at the labels and see!

We just keep tasting!
"It's a job that has to be done".

is a phrase we say everyday as we try each batch of Ice Cream or Sorbet.

Hadleys Brilliantly British ice cream

The secret to making our Individuals/To Share Ice Cream is...

...crack eggs (from Elmsett Game Farm), and whisk together the egg yolks with milk and cream (from Marybelle Dairy), golden caster sugar and a handful of other ingredients to make a custard.

... stir in lovely additions such as melted chocolate (from Pump Street Bakery and Callebaut).  Whip in a rich dulche de leche.  Gently whirl in Pusser's Rum and infused raisins.   Puree fresh raspberries.  Infuse fresh elderflower heads collected from our hedgerows.  Blitz, blend and infuse Lusty Glaze espresso coffee beans (from Hands on Coffee).  Fold in Australian stem ginger.  Split beautifully plump Mexican vanilla pods and infuse.  Freshly chop and toast pecan nuts...

And then,

...churn to freeze and hand fill numerous pots!

Now you know the secret...you can pass it on!
