There’s a part in the movie Little Nicky where Adam Sandler’s trying-to-be-a-good-little-evil-son-of-the-Prince-of-Darkness character tries to show his nefarious chops by changing the contents of a can of coke into Pepsi. Seems like a lame trick on the surface, unless you’re really serious about your cola. Perhaps someone at Joshua’s magic factory was watching this clip and decided that they’d play angel, but instead of cola work on changing one of my favourite spreads into ice cream.
This is amazing, I’ve already had some on toast, and I’ve got this Jamie Oliver recipe for quick mini cheesecakes (gingernut, hazelnut, dark chocolate, lemon zest and butter base, lemon curd and fresh raspberry middle, mascarpone, icing sugar and vanilla topping sprinkled with dark chocolate shavings) that I definitely want to try with this in the mix next time. I almost feel sorry for real lemon curd, it would be like a dictator waking up one morning to find out one of his body doubles is not just running the country now, they’re doing a better job and more popular for it. Sure this dictator is a bit fruity, with a tart, acerbic wit up front, but the mellow sweetness that is their follow through provides an irresistible combination that ensures that they rule all with a creamy fist.
Serve when you want to orchestrate a bloodless lemon curd coup, and want the masses to feel like nothing has changed, except for ice cream. If that doesn’t placate the mob, I don’t know what will.
