This recipe showcases the Ocoo's potential for making unique, intense, natural essences from fruits or vegetables. In this case it's a caramelised tomato essence, made by cooking in the Ocoo for 5 hours on the essence setting. We've paired it with an avocado savoury ice cream, made with MSK UltraLin, presented in a red pepper cone with a matching tuile, both made from our red pepper vegetable sheets. The cone is held in a reversible cone/skewer stand by 100% Chef. We've also used our Stay Dried Tomato Powder as a decorative dusting for the ice cream.
Avocado Savoury Ice Cream
- 565g Milk
- 200g Whipping Cream
- 150g MSK Ultralin
- 8g Salt
- 3g Flavour Enhancer

Place all the ingredients into a jug and stick blend until everything is dissolved in the liquid.
Pour the mixture into a pacojet beaker but only fill 2 thirds of the way to the line.
Fill the last third of the beaker with avocado puree and pacotise.
You can use this method of adding purees to the base mix to make a wide variety of savoury ice creams.
