My mum texted me on the weekend to ask for this recipe, so rather than read it out over the phone, I thought Id share it with blogland. Mum and I made a terrific fig jam version of the icecream, with toffee bits sprinked over and through it. It was pretty outstanding. So here you go, folks. Make it, its easy: no stirring every 10 minutes, no fussing about with ice-churns. You'll love it. My yoga teacher kindly left me with this entry in my 'favourite recipes' cookbook. Lord knows I will need to do ALOT of Yoga to burn off the necessary calories!
