  • 1
    If using a manual ice cream maker, pre-freeze bowl for 12 hours.
  • 2
    In a medium pan heat the single cream, milk, cloves, bicarbonate of soda, clementine, cinnamon, ginger and golden syrup.
  • 3
    Bring to an almost boil and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • 4
    Remove from heat and leave to cool and steep for 30 minutes.
  • 5
    Place the egg yolks in a large bowl and set on a damp towel to stabilise.
  • 6
    Add sugar whisking to combine. Reheat or cool milk mixture to a bare scald, then whisking constantly with one hand, pour the hot dairy very slowly into the yolks until they have been completely combined.
  • 7
    Then, pour the milk and egg mixture back into the saucepan and set over a medium/low heat.
  • 8
    Cook, stirring constantly with a heat proof rubber spatula, scraping the sides and bottom of the pan, until the custard just begins to form a thickened film on the bottom of the pan (tilt pan to see this), or reaches 78oC (172.4F) on an instant read thermometer.
  • 9
    This will take approximately 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and pass through a sieve (sieving off remaining pieces of spices). Cool as quickly as possible.
  • 10
    Measure the Guar Gum into a bowl and very gradually whisk in the custard mixture. Be careful to keep the mixture smooth.
  • 11
    If using a fully automatic ice cream maker then add to machine immediately and churn for 30-45 minutes or until thick, then place in the freezer until ice cream consistency is thick enough to support inclusions without sinking/rising through mixture.
  • 12
    If using a manual ice cream maker chill this mixture in the fridge for at least 4 hours or preferably overnight before churning. Once churned, place in the freezer until ice cream consistency is thick enough to support inclusions without sinking/rising through mixture.
  • 13
    Once the ice cream is of the correct consistency add gingerbread, remaining clementine and white chocolate chips and stir though gently to disperse these inclusions.
  • 14
    Put the ice cream back into the freezer immediately to fully harden.
