    Pear & candied-pecan ice cream

    • Vegetarian
    • Preparation time: 25 minutes + cooling and freezing
    • Cooking time: 7 minutes
    • Total time: 35 minutes + cooling and freezing

    Serves: 8


    1 tsp egg white
    100g Love Life Pecans
    20g demerara sugar
    4 Waitrose Perfectly Ripe Pears, peeled, cored and chopped
    397g can essential Waitrose Condensed Milk
    300ml pot essential Waitrose Double Cream


    1. Place the egg white and pecans in a bowl and mix well until the nuts are coated. Sprinkle in the sugar and stir to combine.

    2. Heat a non-stick frying pan and cook the nuts for 2 minutes, stirring once or twice until just beginning to colour. Tip out onto a plate.

    3. Add the pears to the hot pan with 125ml water and cook gently for 5 minutes or until softened slightly — you should be able to mash a piece with a fork. Leave to cool completely. Chop the nuts into small pieces and reserve 2 tablespoons.

    4. Put the condensed milk and cream in a large bowl and whisk until the mixture just holds its shape. Tip in the cooled pears and nuts and stir well until combined.

    5. Transfer to a freezer-proof container or plastic tub and scatter with the reserved nuts. Cover and freeze for at least 6 hours or overnight until frozen. Transfer to the fridge for 15–30 minutes before serving to soften slightly.
