Making orange ice cream:

Step 1: prepare the orange.

In order to prepare our dessert, we need orange zest and freshly squeezed orange juice. To do this, wash the orange under running water and, using a paper towel, wipe the fruit peel from the water. Then, using a fine grater, rub the zest of citrus in a separate plate.

After - we shift the orange onto a chopping board and use a kitchen knife to cut it into two halves. Using a manual juicer, squeeze the orange juice into a separate cup. Attention: to make ice cream, we need 1 teaspoon of zest and about 100 grams of juice.

Step 2: prepare the cream.

Pour the cream into the blender bowl and whisk well in hard foam at medium speed. Attention: For the preparation of our dessert, I recommend using homemade cream. If the cream is sufficiently oily, dilute them with milk to 35% fat.

Step 3: prepare orange ice cream.

Pour sugar, flour, lemon zest, orange juice into a free saucepan and break the egg. Using a tablespoon, mix everything well until a homogeneous consistency. Attention: if you use a sweet orange to make ice cream, then you need less sugar.
Then we put the pan on medium heat and with constant stirring of the mass, cook the mixture until thickened: the groove that will turn out on the frozen mass should not be delayed. After that, with the help of kitchen tacks, remove the pan from the stove. Set aside and cool the resulting mass to room temperature. If you wish, you can quickly cool the mass by putting it in another pan with cold water. The resulting mass resembles a fondant in consistency.

When the orange fudge cools down to a temperature 35 ° C gradually pour it into a bowl with whipped cream. Using a tablespoon or hand whisk, mix them well together to a homogeneous mass. The resulting mass is poured into a container, covered with a lid and put in the freezer for solidification.
Attention: in order for our dessert to visually appear lush and large crystals do not form in it, enough every 30 minutes remove ice cream from the freezer and beat with a hand whisk. If this procedure is done until the ice cream is ready, then the dessert will not look like fruit ice.

Step 4: serve the orange ice cream.

Half an hour before serving, transfer the orange ice cream from the freezer to the refrigerator. After we take it out of the refrigerator and, using a tablespoon or a small ladle, put it in portioned molds. You can decorate ice cream according to your desire: slices of oranges, a sprig of mint, pistachios or berries. Orange ice cream can be served at the dessert table in homemade bowls of orange peel. Then ice cream will not only become more aromatic, but will also look more appetizing.
Good appetite!

Recipe Tips:

- If you want your orange ice cream to have a slightly sour taste, add lemon or lime.

- You can add vanilla sugar and other spices to ice cream, for example: basil, cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, saffron or ground cloves. All these spices go well with the orange, emphasizing its taste. The only thing you need to pay attention to is the proportion and quantity of seasonings. It’s enough to add 1-2 spices to the ice cream to your taste.

- If you are making ice cream for adults, then add 1 teaspoon of cognac or liquor for flavor.
