    Caramelised apple and pecan ice cream

    This delicious ice cream is really easy to make and you don't need an ice cream machine either.

    • Vegetarian
    • Preparation time: 25 minutes, plus freezing
    • Cooking time: 15 minutes
    • Total time: 40 minutes, plus freezing

    Serves: 6


    3 essential Waitrose red Dessert Apples, peeled, cored and chopped
    25g butter
    4 tbsp golden caster sugar
    Juice 1/2 lemon
    50g pecan nuts, roughly chopped
    300ml double cream, lightly whipped
    500g tub Waitrose Seriously Creamy Madagascan Vanilla Custard


    1. Put the apples in a medium frying pan with the butter, sugar and lemon juice.  Cook over a medium heat, turning occasionally, for about 10 minutes, then remove from the heat and leave to cool.
    2. Fold the lightly whipped cream into the custard then fold in the apple mixture.  Spoon into a rigid, covered container and freeze for an hour.  Remove and stir well to break up any ice then return to the freezer for another couple of hours until completely frozen.  Keep frozen until needed, or for up to 3 months.
    3. Remove from the freezer about 15 minutes before serving so that it is easier to scoop.
