{Day 16} Pumpkin and orange ice cream ‘hats’ for Halloween

I love, love, love my new Cuisinart ice cream maker!!! I’ve always wanted one and now I have one! Keep reading on how you could win one of the Cuisinart ice cream makers valued at A$119 thanks to the lovely folks at Kitchenware Direct

Why do I love it 3x? On top of the fact that in under 20 minutes it churns the most delicious ice cream flavour combinations you can think of, it is pink. And because it is a limited edition pink, and because it is made by Cuisinart, $5 from every maker sold is being donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation! That’s why!

Now, without any further ado, please allow me to introduce contender number 16 in the Royal Selangor Get Your Jelly On challenge: the chocolate-coated pumpkin and orange sorbet witch’s hats. See a complete list of all my entries for other yummy cone-shaped ideas using the Royal Selangor pewter jelly mould, sales of which support the Breast Cancer Welfare Association in Malaysia.

Back to Halloween. I’ll be honest with you when I say that I have never gotten into the whole Halloween thing…

Growing up in Poland we celebrated All Saints on the 1st of November instead. It was a time of reflection and remembrance of the ones who have passed on. Everyone would head out to local cemetaries throughout the day and evening to tidy up tombstones which have been forgotten or abandonned, and light up candles. One of the cemetaries Mum and I used to go to visit had many celebrities, politicians and other important people buried there, so by nightfall the paths around the most commonly visited stones were  glowing with a sea of flickering candle lights.

I liked getting off the main track though. I looked for sites that didn’t have a single light on them, the forgotten ones with wilted flowers in a tarnished vase and month old leaves covering the names of the people who lay there. To me, lighting that one candle was like sending out a warm smile to the person, saying it’s ok, we remember you. I miss being there around this time sometimes…

And while Halloween is still 2 weeks away and Australians don’t really celebrate it as much as Americans or people in Hong Kong do, we often find themed treats and parties leading up to the 31st October. When I first saw the jelly mould and realised the challenge was taking place so close to Halloween, I knew that I had to make some sort of a themed treat. Straight away I thought of a witch’s hat and since pumpkin is the main “ingredient” of Halloween, pumpkin ice cream had to be it!

Since I am not very aware of Halloween customs, a friend of mine, S, whom I have temporarily promoted to the position of my blog’s Artistic Director, suggested I should turn one of the cute little pumpkins I picked up to use as props into a Jack O’Lantern. So I did – very cute! Thanks S 🙂

Makes 2 ‘hats’ or 2 cups

Pumpkin and orange ice cream ‘hats’ for Halloween

I have used canned pumpkin for this recipe, which I didn’t even know we could get here but I found some at David Jones Food Hall. The flavour is a lot different to our Kent or Japanese pumpkins, and I would thoroughly recommend making your own puree from either of those two types. I used Stevia to sweeten the ice cream as it is much sweeter than cane sugar but has a GI of 1 – can’t go any lower than that!

For the ice cream:

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree (I used canned puree)
  • 2 cups thickened cream
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 cup Stevia (natural sweetener)
  • 1 tsp gingerbread spice mix
  • Zest of 1/2 an orange

For the shell:

  • Ice magic or any other chocolate coating for ice cream that sets

Prepare your ice cream maker and bowl according to manufacturer’s instructions.

To make the ice cream: combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Turn the heat off and allow to cool at room temperature before placing in the fridge for another couple of hours. Once chilled, pour the mixture into the ice cream mixing bowl and assemble your unit. Churn for 15 minutes of until the ice cream is frozen and ready.

Spoon ice cream into your cone moulds and place in the freezer to set, cover with plastic film to prevent freezer burn.

To assemble the hats: pour about 2 tablespoons of Ice Magic onto a sheet of grease proof paper and spread to make a circle. Repeat to make one more. Place in the freezer to set.

In the meantime, unmould pumpkin ice cream cones. Remove the chocolate discs from the freezer and turn the cones out onto the middle of the discs. Pour over extra Ice magic to cover the entire ice cream cone and allow to set. Serve immediately.

Very interesting taste combo, I would of never thought of pumpkin as a flavour to use in ice cream. When you think of it, why not we eat pumpkin pie. Curious, was the pumpkin puree that you purchased the pie filler one?

Reply
Wholesome Cook October 16, 2011 at 8:00 pm

Hey Sara, no the pumpkin purée was just 100% pumpkin, no spices or anything. They had the pie filler but I preferred to go with my own spices.

Wow, Martyna, look at the gorgeous color on that ice cream! I’m following you on FB + Twitter already, and re-tweeted this post.

Honestly it’s hard to decide what flavor I’d make – I have about 1,000 stewing in my mind!

But the one that keeps coming back is an Iranian saffron and rose ice cream I used to eat growing up, when my dad would take me to his favorite kebab place. I’d scarf down my salmon kebabs on dill rice, and pray that the owner’s wife had whipped up one of her batches of saffron ice cream that day.

Dad would join in on the excitement, grabbing two of the wooden spoons from the counter… we’d sit on the curb outside the restaurant and finish off the little tub before even getting back in the car (our secret from mom, who was sure it’d spoil my appetite for dinner). Such a wonderful memory I have… making that ice cream after all these years would transport me back to being closer to my parents (in the US), not to mention satisfy a serious craving 🙂

Your ice-cream cone looks lovely and very Halloween-themed indeed! (Although I’m not a specialist here, I have never celebrated Halloween. It’s still not very popular in Europe although shops and restaurants are very pushy and try to make it as popular and as profitable as Valentine’s day).
I have never had pumpkin ice-cream, I wonder how it would taste like, especially with orange.

I just found this comp… I’ve been out of the blogger loop for a little over a week and look at what happens!!!! I would make a tomato and Tabasco sorbet to be used with white anchovies on top of melba toast. Yaaayayayayaa it’s a dish we had at Movida then Hamish did his version for Christmas last year. We wanted to do it for Christmas this year.. but we don’t have an ice cream maker huhuhuhuhuuuu SO that’s what I would do!!! I’d also probably whip up something sweet like a lychee sorbet infused with mint and ginger or something along those lines.

I follow you on here, twitter and Facebook.

Thank you for running this comp!!!!

Those pumpkin hats are such a creative idea! Love your carving as well. The colours look so bright, nice touch combining orange with pumpkin. I tend to go the American Thanksgiving way when it comes to pumpkin desserts (adding spice: nutmeg, cinnamon, etc). The first flavour I’d make if I won the Cusiinart ice cream maker would definitely be dulce de leche chip (like an italian straciatella, but with dulce de leche ice cream instead of plain cream) using dark chocolate shavings. Delish.

Then I kept searching and searching and finally found out that you were doing the challenge. Seems cool. I don’t think I have the time or know how to follow a 30 day cooking challenge but your recipes inspire me.

Okay, back to the ice cream maker… Hmmm, I’d probably make an icecream flavored with lychees and chai tea… I would have to find a way to make it with soy milk or some sort of heavy cream… Mmmm… I’m getting happy just thinking about it.

I’ve never really got into the spirit of Halloween because it seemed so American. But after a trip to Ireland a few years ago, I discovered that it has its origins in ancient Celtic rituals from thousands of years ago. Fascinating.
Your Halloween treats look so imaginative!
As for the icecream flavour I would make with the Cuisinart machine – it would have to be strawberry, wouldn’t it? – luscious summer strawberries turned into a deliciously creamy icecream in a pretty shade of pink, in keeping with the spirit of Breast Cancer Awareness.
