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

  2. 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.
  3. 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.
