Yumminess Everywhere

Saturday, 8 June 2013

Spellcheck says that yumminess is not a word and that what I really mean is gumminess, crumminess or chumminess. Well I don't, I mean yumminess, or rather Tom does as 'yumminess everywhere' was what he said after supper this evening.


I slow-roasted two small pork shoulder joints.


I pulled off the crackling and broke it into pieces. I shredded the meat with two forks. This is a bit like pulled pork which is popular in the US. I didn't consult a recipe so it is in no way authentic.


We ate it stuffed into rolls with coleslaw and barbecue sauce. Crackling on the side.


Then we moved on to ice cream yumminess. Malteser ice cream.


Malteser Ice Cream
This is a doddle to make as it involves no cooking. I adapted it slightly from the basic ice cream recipe in  Ben and Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream and Dessert Book .

In a large jug* beat 2 eggs adding 6oz  (170g) sugar (I used vanilla sugar) a little at a time until well blended -about 2 mins.
Add a 16 fl oz of double cream and 8 fl oz of milk. Blend well and refrigerate for several hours so that it is really cold before you pour it into an ice cream maker.
Churn the ice cream for 30-40 minutes. Just before it is ready pour in a 135g packet of Maltesers which you have crushed.
I transfer the ice cream to a plastic container and freeze for a couple of hours as I like my ice cream quite firm.
* Using a jug makes it easier to pour the mixture into the ice cream maker.


Crushed Crunchie bars and Dime bars are also on my list of things to add to ice cream.
I wonder if there is enough left for me to have a sneaky scoop later...

  1. Yumminess everywhere indeed! What a fantastic meal for a Saturday evening! I do hope you find enough ice cream left for that sneaky scoop later because, well, because yumminess of this order deserves an encore! E x

  2. It looks just like pulled pork to me! We're having a dinner of porkiness tonight too, smoked ribs. My husband is making them, with homemade barbecue sauce. He makes his own spice rub too. Your dinner looks beautiful and absolutely scrumptious.

  3. We're fighting the urge to eat supper but that pork and crackling... and the coleslaw looks home made too.

    Yum :)

    1. Yes the coleslaw was homemade.
      I call it supper, my husband calls it tea and others call it dinner. This was our main meal of the day.

    2. Do you have a recipe for your coleslaw it looks lovely? Julie x

    3. It's just grated carrots, sliced cabbage and onion mixed with mayonnaise. Lots of black pepper ;-)

  4. Great ice-cream. I have a Ben & Jerry's book too that I use sometimes, when there's room in the freezer for the ice cream machine bowl. I hope you get that scoop later, I think you deserve it after all that cooking. And I'd be interested to know how you hold the family off until after you've taken your photos! Mine won't hang about long enough, it's a feeding frenzy.

    1. It is a challenge to be sure. I usually end up photographing my own meal.

  5. Blimey missus. That looks deeelish. (Wonder what spellcheck thinks of that?) Hope you have had a malteser top-up. Do you think I could make it without an ice-cream maker? Ax

    1. I'm sure you could but you'll have to google for details. I think basically you freeze the mixture in a tub and take it out at hourly intervals and beat with a fork to break up ice crystals.

  7. That settles it. I'm moving in with you! What a splendiferous feast!

    I am constantly fed up with spell-check who will not let me type 'til' always correcting it to 'tip' Grrrrrrrr! And many others.

  15. Spellchecker is an abomination, meant to make the world too lazy to learn to spell properly. It also gets ideas above its station and starts to lord it over people who use perfectly good words like yumminess. Don't succumb.

    Also, I always thought that supper is a casual, family meal; dinner is a more formal meal; tea is what the Queen has at 4:00pm. Am I wrong?

    1. I think you are right Kari but many many people including my husband's family call the main evening meal tea. I was brought up to call it supper.
      Quite a lot of Brits call lunch dinner. It can be very confusing!

  16. I like yumminess, that's how it looks to me

  17. I think the main evening meal is tea if its just 'us' and ordinary food, and only dinner if its something fancy... Same with pudding and desert, homecooked, warm and comforting - pudding, fancy schmancy - desert. Supper is just a snack before bed. My boy who is Yorkshire born and bred with two southern parents calls his mid day meal lunch but has dinner ladies who look latter them at lunch time - it's terribly confusing! What ever meal it was for, that pork looks amazing, and my recently converted back to meat eating following the horse meat debacle body wants to eat it immediately.

  20. I like the idea of Maltesers in ice cream! I love my Ben and Jerry's recipe book, so straightforward and un-precious, and so adaptable - maple syrup and pecans are the current favourite, especially if you caramelise the pecans first..... (Calories? What calories?)

    Yummy.....looks so good! For me growing up it was breakfast dinner and tea. Now its breakfast lunch and dinner, mainly because so many people correct me if I say tea, for my evening meal or dinner for my lunch time meal!!!!! And dime bars wow its been years since I had one, love them.
    I love a crushed up crunchie bar in my ice cream!
