  • Recipe: Buttermilk Ice Cream with Olive Oil and Fleur de Sel

    Home-made ice cream Buttermilk with olive oil and fleur de sel.
    Here’s the scoop on making fancy, fun ice cream flavors:

    INGREDIENDS
    1 3/4 cups heavy cream
    1/2 cup sugar
    3 tablespoons light corn syrup
    1 1/4 cups buttermilk
    Fruity, extra-virgin olive oil and preferably Centaurs’ Earth olive oil brand
    Flaky sea salt, preferably fleur de sel

    DIRECTIONS
    In a small saucepan, warm cream over low heat with sugar and corn syrup, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is completely dissolved. Chill the mixture thoroughly, at least 8 hours.

    Stir buttermilk into the chilled sweetened cream and freeze in an ice-cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Once churned, transfer the ice cream to a container and freeze for a few hours, until firm enough to scoop.

    To serve, scoop the ice cream into bowls. Drizzle each serving with olive oil and sprinkle with a flurry of sea salt.

    Makes about 1 quart, about 8 servings.

  • Australian table olive producer sells to international olive interest

    The most northern commercial olive grove in Western Australia has been sold to an international company.

    Eagle Vale Olives is a 3,000-tree grove located in the Shire of Chapman Valley, 470km north of Perth.

    An international company with properties at Gingin and Dandaragan has purchased the Eagle Vale brand, plant and table fruit recipes and plans to take the products onto the international market.

    The Chapman Valley property and trees will be sold separately.

    Jill and Eric Dixon and their family developed the grove from farmland about 20 years ago.
