Method:

1.) Place the olives in a bowl with enough water to just cover them. Leave for a couple of hours. Drain the water.

For The Ice Cream:

1.) Add milk and vanilla extract to a pan and bring to a medium heat.

2.) In other bowl, add egg yolks, sugar and whisk until creamed

3.) Use a ladle to slowly add the heated milk into the creamed eggs and sugar, whilst continuously whisking.

4.) Once all the milk has been added to the egg/sugar mixture, pour back into the pot and stir the ice cream base with a wooden spoon over medium heat, until thickened.

5.) Allow the base to cool for at least four to five hours.

6.) When the ice cream has sufficiently cooled insert it into your ice cream maker.

7.) Churn for around 25 minutes.
