We don't have ice cream vans playing melodious tunes. We have decorated ice cream carts pushed by ambulant vendors. The front of the cart holds several canisters, well insulated from the scorching sun, containing ice cream. The back has containers for the cones and the ice cream scoops.
There are no fancy flavours. Just classic old time favourites: vanilla, chocolate, ube (purple yam) and of course my favourite, cheese. Yes, cheese as in cheddar cheese. Filipinos love cheese on everything and is added to both savoury and sweet food, even ice cream. The ice cream is sweet and creamy with bits of real cheese. I have made my version here with two types of cheddar and cream cheese. How cheesy can that be?
330 mls. single cream
1 c. condensed milk
1 c. grated mild cheddar cheese
1/2 c. cream cheese
3 tbsps. sugar
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 c. coarsely grated mature cheddar cheese
Mix all of the ingredients together, except for the mature cheddar. churn in an ice cream maker. When the mixture is thick and fluffy and ready for the freezer, fold in the grated mature cheddar. Transfer to a plastic container and freeze.
