Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me, happy birthday dear che-ef, happy birthday to me!
As you probably guessed from that, today is my birthday! And because it's my birthday, I've decided to cheat a bit and share a recipe with you that I actually haven't discovered yet in-game. On my request, my lovely sister figured out a delicious recipe for saffron-mango ice cream!
[this is where the GW2 recipe for saffron-mango ice cream would be if I had discovered it]
Hmm, mango. Who doesn't like mango? There are a few things you should know before trying to start this recipe. First off, you should start making this two days before whenever you want it finished. You will need an ice cream machine. This recipe contains raw eggs. For practical purposes, snow has been left out of this recipe, although you're more than welcome to add it if you think it will do any good.
My sister was also kind enough to add imperial measures and in-progress pictures! What more can you ask for!
Mango-saffron ice cream
3 large eggs
1/2 cup (100 g) sugar
2 cups (500 ml) heavy cream (Dutch: slagroom)
1 cup (250 ml) half and half (Dutch: koffieroom)
1 vanilla bean
2 large or 3 small mangoes, peeled and stone removed
3 saffron threads
Cut the vanilla bean lengthwise and scrape out the seeds. Bring the heavy cream, half and half, saffron and the vanilla bean and seeds to a boil and let it simmer on a low heat for approximately 20 min. Let the mixture cool completely, then cover it and refrigerate overnight.
