- Place dried fruit, rind and brandy in a bowl, leave to sit. Overnight if possible.
- Place cream, milk, vanilla seeds, pod, cinnamon stick and mixed spice in a saucepan, bring just to a simmer, take off heat and leave to infuse.
- Whisk yolks and sugar together until pale and creamy, strain infused mixture onto eggs, stirring to combine. Place mixture back into a clean saucepan and stir over a gentle heat until mixture coats the back of spoon. Leave to cool completely before placing in ice cream machine or container in freezer.
- When ice cream is nearly frozen, add fruit mixture and continue to churn until frozen.
If you don۪'t have an ice cream machine, freeze in a pre-chilled metal bowl covered in freezer, removing every couple of hours to whisk and re-freezing until thick and smooth.
