Edit…added cast quotes…

Backstory:
I met the cast of the TV show Remedy in January at a charity event. After last weeks episode, one of them made a comment about wanting to have a Remedy flavoured ice cream.

I really hope this show lasts a long time and we can get a Remedy ice cream flavor at the best shops in Toronto #IceCreamDream #RemedyTV

Diego Garcia retweeted that, and I commented to both of them…:

@ElOriginalDiego @sarahallenhere Well…with all the hookups so far this year…the only thing that so far seems to fit is banana! 😉

and

@ElOriginalDiego @sarahallenhere though blood is also common…so maybe blood orange…

* I do NOT own a ‘best shop’ in Toronto…but…I CAN make a good Ice Cream!*
*If you DO have an ice cream shop in Toronto…and want the recipe… leave a note, we’ll talk!*

**If I FIND this ice cream recipe in a shop…I’mma call a lawyer! lol**

I took that as a challenge! After making a joke about all the sex that’s on the show this year and a banana ice cream, I settled on blood orange because, well, it’s a medical show and there’s a LOT of blood! 🙂

Since this was a test batch, I didn’t really want to spend the money on fresh blood oranges when I have something that is basically the same flavour without the colour… So I used bakery emulsion and orange flower water instead, the colour came from food colouring… In retrospect, with the blood red strawberry topping, I should have made the ice cream more of a fleshtone, which I think I’ll do next time…

Sarah’s response after seeing (and not tasting) the ice cream was awesome:

@Blackbird_2 WHA?????!!!!

and immediately after:

😍@Blackbird_2 made a REMEDY ICE CREAM flavour. Best art inspired by TV ever. #RemedyTV

Thanks Sarah!!

Now…how it’s done…

Ice Cream recipe:

This is very basic and takes only a minute or two to prepare…
It’s my take on a Philadelphia Style Ice Cream…

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 oz White Rum
  • 1 oz (or to taste) Orange bakery emulsion
  • 1 tbsp Orange Flower water
  • 1/2 – 2/3 cup icing sugar
  • Red Food Colouring

Mix ingredients together until sugar is fully blended in. Chill for 20 mins, then churn for 30 mins.

Take out of mixer then freeze.

Sauce:

I took frozen berries that I’d normally use for a smoothie and threw them in a pot with some rum, brown sugar, balsamic vinegar and white wine vinegar. It was about 60% strawberry, and the rest a mix of blueberries and raspberries, leading to the darker colour… almost like dried blood… It was about 1 cup of berries total…

All of this was done to taste, so I can’t really say how much of each was in it… but be easy on the vinegars…it was only a splash of each…just enough to impart a little flavour…

After that, I blended it with about a tbsp of the heavy cream to lighten it up just a little bit, then sent it through a strainer to get out any remaining chunks…

Then, all you have to do is put some ice cream into a bowl, add the berry ‘blood’ on top and you have…well…BLOODY GOOD ICE CREAM!
