A Japanese Ice Cream for Valentines Day


A Japanese Ice Cream for Valentines Day. I have been thinking about what type of Japanese Ice Cream could be good for Valentines day. It would have to be luxurious and delicious. This ice cream is both.Japanese Haagen Daz Rare Cheese Cake ice cream. I don't usually like Haagen Daz but this one is fantastic.It tastes exactly what the name says - each mouthful tastes like a little piece a cheesecake in my mouth, with a slight hint of lemon and sweet honey. Then you can taste the biscuit base with more lemon taste.Just perfect.Happy Valentines day everyone. And below is a recipe to make your own Cheesecake Ice creamThis is how the company describes it and truly that's what it is like. Ice cream with cream cheese, from Tokachi, Hokkaido, Japan, soft lemon sauce, and fragrantly mixed texture with flaky and buttery biscuits. Glamorous honey with a refreshing lemon-scented honey source and combined with rich cream cheese ice cream, Haagen- rare cheese cake.Japanese Cheesecake Icecream Recipe just like Haagen Daz.175 ml Full cream milk 200 grams of caster sugar I packet (125 grams) of cream cheese ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract 1 medium egg Juice of a lemon 350 ml double cream 50 grams crumbled digestive biscuits Heat the milk in a pan, and while it's warming up, beat the sugar, cream cheese, egg and vanilla together in a bowl. Keep beating and pour the hot milk into the cream cheese mixture and then pour it all back into a  clean saucepan and cook till a smooth custard. Don't bother with a double boiler, and actually don't even keep the heat very low, but you will need to stir it constantly, and if you think there's any trouble ahead, plunge the pan into a sink half filled with cold water and whisk like mad and it will become smooth. It shouldn't take more than 10 minutes, this way, for the custard to cook. And when it has thickened, take it off the heat, pour into a bowl and let it cool, at which time add the lemon juice and then the double cream. Freeze in an ice cream maker or place into a covered container, stick it in the freezer and whip it out every hour for 3 hours as it freezes and give it a good beating, folding in the crushed buiscuits before the ice cream is set solid. Yum.

Cantaloupe or Rockmelon ice cream in Japan


Yummy Cantaloupe Ice Cream soft serve in Japan.
I have always wondered what the difference was between Cantaloupe and Rockmelon, I always thought the 'webbing' on the skin was different but apparently there is no difference at all, just different areas of the world call them by different names.
Here is a good post from an Australian talking about it. What do you call it Rockmelon or Cantaloupe?

How To Make Japanese Creme Brulee Ice Cream Recipe


Japanese Creme Brulee Ice Cream Recipe.
I just wrote about a cup of creme brulee ice cream that you can buy at a store but why not make your own.

375 ml (1½ cup) normal full fat milk
375 ml (1½ cup) cream
1 whole vanilla bean (or 1 teaspoon high-quality vanilla essence if you want)
2 eggs
3 egg yolks
150 gram (3/4 cup) light brown sugar
150 gram (3/4 cup) granulated raw sugar

Pour together the milk and the cream in a saucepan. Cut the vanilla bean in half lengthwise and scrape out the seeds. Add the vanilla seeds and the pod to the milk and cream mix and bring to an almost-boil.

Mix the two types of sugar together. Measure half (3/4 cup) of the sugar mix to be used for the crunchy Brulee. To caramelise the sugar, melt in a saucepan until golden, then pour onto tin foil or similar. Let the sugar form a rather thin layer and wait for it to cool. Then crush up the sugar layer into smaller pieces of caramelised sugar. Put these aside for now because these crunchy pieces will be added towards the end of the ice cream churning. You should have around 4 tablespoons of caramelised chunks of sugar; the rest of it can be used to sprinkle on the top when you serve the ice cream.

Beat the eggs, egg yolks and rest of the sugar mix (3/4 cup) really well together. Take 250 ml (1 cup) of the heated milk/cream and, while whisking continuously, slowly add it just a little by a little into the egg and sugar mix. Add the egg mix to the cream mixture and blend thoroughly. Pour everything back into the sauce pan, and while stirring constantly bring the mixture to about 84 degrees Celsius (180º F) on low-moderate heat. Quickly take off from the heat and cool as quickly as possible in an ice bath.

When cooled down, chill the ice cream base in the fridge, if possible, overnight but at least for a few hours. Afterwards remove the vanilla pod. Churn the ice cream base in your ice cream machine. Towards the very end of the churning, add about 1/4 cup of the caramelised Brulee sugar pieces. When churning is finished, put it in a freezer-proof container, cover it with plastic film and seal it with a lid. Place it in the freezer.

The next day it will be perfect to serve.

Japanese Lavender Ice Cream


A nice Japanese softcream. It didn't have much flavour though, more like vanilla.


Japanese Haagen Dazs Crispy Sandwich


I think I have mentioned before that I don’t really like Haagen Dazs ice cream in Japan. It is just another mass produced ice cream that, to me, isn’t very creamy or nice in flavour. Anyway, here is one more a bit like the Manako bars I like, they call it a Crispy Sandwich.


Green Tea and Sakura Ice cream from Kyoto


Green Tea and Sakura Ice cream from Kyoto.

I have this marked as Sakura (cherry blossom) but I think it was actually Red Bean (azuki). It was a while back and I don't remember.


Chocolate and Vanilla Soft Cream from Japan


Nothing nicer in Summer than a nice Japanese softcream and one of the best would be this chocolate and vanilla ice cream cone.


Lavendar soft cream


One of my favourite ice cream flavours. Lavender soft cream.

This was really mild, just a hint of flavour of the vanilla taste.


Haagen Daz Crispy Sandwich ice cream


I had a Haagen Daz Crispy Sandwich ice cream that was Green Tea flavour. I don’t like Haagen Daz ice cream very much but this looked nice so I tried it out. It was OK , nothing great, just OK. I was a bit disappointed but that's how I find Haagen Daz ice cream.


Green Tea Ice Cream flavoured Cookies


These are not little ice creams but they are cookies that are green tea icecream flavour with chocolate chips.

I didn’t like them much.

Japanese Ice Cream Vendor


A quick photo of a Japanese ice cream vendor on Hondori St. in downtown Hiroshima.

Yuk. Garlic, Snake and Beer ice cream


Three ice cream flavours, all three disapointing. These are all from the Ice Cream City park and all are a gimmick I guess.
First one is the Beer flavour ice cream called Twin Star Aso Bier Story (beer ice cream) which I would have thought I'd love, but the fermentation from the beer plus the milk and cream made the ice cream taste like off cheese. The next was one called Dracula and it was meant to be a garlic ice cream, it was like a normal cheap vanilla ice cream. Last one is Pit Viper Snake ice cream, this the same as the garlic one, no special flavour at all and not even little bit of snake (not that I would want them).

Japanese White peach and Lafrance ice cream


Japanese White peach and Lafrance ice cream . I have no idea about the LaFrance part but this is White Peach and Pear flavoured ice cream. The ice cream has a little spice flavour of , maybe, cinnamon - I guess that could be the LaFrance flavour :). A bit like how apple pie has spice.

Anyway, this is really nice, really creamy and like I mentioned taste kind of like apple pie or peach cobbler. The ice cream is made by the Yamada Dairy Corporation even though the lid says from Zao Island.

Ice Cream Exhibition - Grapefruit and Orange Japanese Sorbet


Ice Cream Exhibition - thick fruit Japanese Sorbet.
The flavours of this Japanese sorbet are Yuzu grapefruit and Mikan orange. This is not a creamy ice cream but a fruity sorbet and really thick. Both of these have not just the fruit and juice but some peel in them and they are a bit 'tangy' to taste.
