Licorice All Sorts Ice Cream

Here's another great recipe for Licorice Ice Cream.  This one uses Licorice All Sorts.  You can find the recipe here.

The recipe is from Europe, so you may not be familiar with the measurements and ingredients. Here are some hints for substitution:

Caster sugar is a very fine sugar. You can use "superfine" sugar or simply run regular sugar through a food processor (let the dust settle before opening.)

Simbuca is an Italian anise-flavored liqueur. If you can't find it, you may substitute 2 teaspoons anise extract for the 2 tablespoons Sambuca.

Here are the conversions of the measurements:
300 ml (milk or cream) = 1 1/4 cups
200 g. sugar = 1 cup

You can buy Licorice AllSorts at Licorice International (click here for the direct link to Allsorts).  Either kind will work for this recipe.  One-half pound equals about 225 grams.  A half a package of RJ's Allsorts equals the amount used in the recipe.

Licorice Allsorts come in fun shapes and colors that are fun to serve guests.  So you may want to buy a few extra bags.
