The dessert that solves that age-old dilemma – mince pie or ice cream – is back! For a limited period only, Berkshire based premium ice cream maker, Beechdean Farmhouse Dairy Ice Cream, has reintroduced its popular seasonal offering – Mince Pie Ice Cream.
Made by husband and wife team Andrew and Susie Howard using fresh whole Jersey milk and rich double cream from their own pedigree Jersey herd. Like all of Beechdean’s ice creams, the Mince Pie Ice Cream contains no artificial preservatives or additives – just juicy raisins and succulent currants with pieces of orange and lemon peel for a citrus zing and real nutmeg and cinnamon with a dash of Courvoisier to give it that truly festive flavour. And for good measure a crisp shortcake biscuit to add an unexpected crunch!
Andrew Howard, MD of Beechdean Farmhouse Dairy Ice Cream, said: “We first produced our Mince Pie Ice Cream last year as a fun, seasonal product but we have brought it back by popular demand for this year. It seems to appeal to the festive spirit and is easier to eat than some other heavier traditional Christmas puddings and desserts and so is perfect for pubs and restaurants to have on the menu.”
