  • Jelly fish and lemon grass ice cream

    Found this here so I cannot take credit , it's mostly primal, the only thing you perhaps want to change is the sugar, maybe stevia or honey? Thought it would be a fantastic talking point for a dinner party.

    You can buy edible jellyfish from lots of Chinese stores. Either get the big packs that need soaking in cold water to de-salt, or the ‘instant’ packs which are ready-to-eat.

    4 stalks of lemon grass, outer leaves peeled away
    200ml double cream
    200ml coconut milk
    150ml whole milk
    100g prepared jellyfish
    4 eggs, yolks only
    100g caster sugar
    Grated zest of one lime

    To serve: fresh coriander leaves

    1.Grate the lemongrass
    2.Mix it together with the cream, coconut milk and whole milk.
    3.Place it in a small pan and bring it to boiling point, then turn the heat off and allow it to cool for a few minutes
    4.Meanwhile, drain and finely chop the jellyfish
    5.Whisk the egg yolks and sugar together until pale, then add the creamy lemongrass mixture and combine them all in a saucepan. Heat over a low flame stirring all the time, until the mixture has thickened to a single cream consistency. This usually takes 2-5 minutes, but be careful not to heat it too quickly or the mixture will turn into a scrambled eggy mess!
    7.Mix lime zest and the chopped jellyfish into the ice cream mixture
    8.Pour into an ice-cream maker and turn it on!
    9.Store in the freezer, but always let it rest at room temperature to soften before serving. Serve with a scattering of fresh coriander leaves

      Like, the blobs of jelly filled with stinging cells/barbs?

      What are they, protein jelly?
