Mint ice creamUser Submitted Recipe
A frozen herbal custard
2 c whipping cream
2 cup milk (skim is OK)
1 cup mint leaves (I used chocolate mint but lemon balm, pineapple mint or apple mint would also be good)
1 cup sugar
8 egg yolks
In saucepan, simmer sugar with milks and mint on stove until sugar is melted and small bubbles appear. Mix yolks together (reserve whites for meringue!). Add 1/2 cup of hot milk to the yolk mix and mix quickly to avoid scrambling the eggs. Mix half of that mix in with the hot milk until incorporated, then mix in the rest.
Strain out mint.
Freeze in Cuisinart Ice Cream maker.
