How it started: The first time I visited my Grandmother's house on a Sunday evening was a traumatic event for me. There on the snowy linen of her dining room table amid the crystal, candlelight and flowers was a vast array of dessert; showing off to fine effect Grandmother's confectionery skills! Cake, pie and cookies; pudding, and fruited aspic; chocolates, berries and nuts; how cruel! It was overwhelming. It was shocking. It made me cry. How on earth was a child to cope when you had been taught that you could most certainly not have dessert until your plate was clean, and there was not a proper bite of food to be seen?
After a good laugh at my expense, Grandmother explained that Sunday Supper was always the dessert course which followed Sunday dinner by several hours of visiting and a drive in the family car, so that there would actually be room for it in our full tummies, and no dear, you needn't eat salad or pot pie first! Over the years, I have created dozens of eggless desserts that have been enjoyed by many and now, you can find my favorites by following the links below.
Eggless Frozen Desserts
Why Frozen Eggless Desserts?
There is some cause for concern about homemade ice cream when it is prepared using eggs. The CDC reports that every year homemade ice cream causes several outbreaks of Salmonella infection claiming up to several hundred victims at church picnics, family reunions, and other large gatherings due to uncooked or undercooked eggs in the product.
However, in as much as there are no eggs in your vegetarian kitchen that is not a problem. So, yes, the good news is that you can now create wonderful eggless frozen desserts in your vegetarian kitchen without the risk of Salmonella poisoning.
In YOUR Vegetarian Kitchen, in the 21st century, enjoying frozen eggless desserts certainly is easier than it was in the ancient world.
In Istanbul, deep in the cavernous depths of the Topkapi Palace's foundations, there were rooms filled with snow packed in straw. The snow was gathered in the deepest cold of winter from the heights of the Mountains and transported to the palace specifically for the culinary pleasure of the Sultan, his harem and his Court. Sweet fruit juices were chilled and poured over the snow creating a delectable confection.
The practice of cooling off during the heat of the Summer with eggless frozen desserts precedes the Ottoman Empire by hundreds if not thousands of years. Folklore has it that in the first century, Nero had snow passed via a bucket brigade to provide him with this refreshing palate cleansing iced treat. There is also a tradition in China that suggests that eggless frozen sorbet was not unknown there.
