Double Ginger Ice Cream

Makes 1 Quartdouble ginger icecream

The fresh ginger adds intense flavor to this ice cream.  Though it’s a favorite at Coho Restaurant (our partners down the street) if you’re preparing this for people who are not quite the ginger fanatics that we are, you may want to decrease the amount of fresh ginger.

 

 

Ingredients

3 cups heavy cream

1 cup whole milk

¼ cup fresh ginger, grated

Pinch of salt

8 egg yolks

¾ cup sugar

2 – 3 Tablespoons diced crystallized ginger (I use Trader Joe’s or Frontier – both are wonderfully moist and flavorful.)

Method

1.       Heat cream, milk, fresh ginger, and salt.  Bring to simmer about 20 minutes.  Cool slightly or refrigerate overnight.

2.       Whisk together egg yolks and sugar in a separate bowl.

3.      Strain milk mixture and reheat gently.  Add ½ cup of the heated milk to the egg yo;l mixture, stirring constantly to prevent curdling/.

4.      Add the remaining milk to the eggs.  Transfer bak to the pot.

5.      Heat for another 3 to 5 minutes, until custard coats the back of a wooden spoon.

6.      Add crystallized ginger and refrigerate overnight.

7.      Transfer to an ice cream make and process according to manufacturer’s directions.

Serving Suggestion: This ice cream is a perfect dessert for a “make your own” sushi party or after an Indian dinner.
