Author Notes: This ice cream is as smooth as silk. I am using a modification for a muscovado ice cream recipe from India Tree. —Sagegreen
Serves: 1 quart
cups heavy cream
cups half and half
ounces dark muscovado sugar
large egg yolks
sprinkle of Vietnamese cinnamon
teaspoon sea salt
teaspoon zested peeled fresh ginger
teaspoon Meyer's lemon peel, zested
teaspoon Tahitian vanilla
cocoa and cinnamon or ginger zest for garnish, optional
- In a heavy sauce pan warm half the cream and half and half, and then whisk in the the muscovado sugar, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla. Bring to a gentle boil, stirring frequently. Take off the heat. Add the the ginger and lemon zest.
- Whisk the egg yolks together other half of the cream.Temper with 1/2 cup of the warm cream mix. Gradually pour yolk mix into the rest of cream mix in the pan and stir over low heat, but do not boil. Cover with parchment paper and cool; then refrigerate at least 2 hours, even overnight.
- Proceed to follow your ice cream maker directions and process as ice cream. Freeze in a container for a few hours for best results. If you like your ice cream soft and a bit runny, then do go ahead and enjoy this right away.
- Sprinkle with cinnamon or ginger zest.
