You may also want to watch:
Bring the cream and the ale to a simmer, but do not allow to boil. Meanwhile, whisk the egg yolks and sugar together in a heat-resistant bowl until well mixed. Once the cream mixture is simmering, pour over the egg/sugar mix and whisk thoroughly. Allow to cool and then place in a freezer. Return to the ice cream every 20 minutes to churn with a wooden spoon in order to prevent crystallising – this can take up to eight hours!
While the ice cream sets, mix the sultanas, brown sugar and cinnamon into softened butter to bind. Core out the apples, filling each with a spoonful of the butter mix, then wrap the apple in foil. Bake on the bottom shelf of the oven for about 30 to 35 minutes, until the apple is soft.
