All the following recipes are without ice cream machine produced. Of these are all but the basil ice cream, Parfaits. This means that the egg yolk-sugar-cream mixture develops such a consistency when frozen that it develops a slightly crystalline structure. This is so intentional and makes its very own charm. The following recipes should be partly already prepared the day before so that they can freeze through properly.
