Coffee Ice Cream
|Coffee Ice cream|
Serves about 10 persons
1 1/2 cups sugar
4 egg yolks
In a slow stream pour over it 1 cup of hot (not boiling ) full cream,stirring constantly.
Bring the pan over a low flamed stove, keep stirring until the custard is just about to boil. Do not allow to boil. This is to ensure the eggs are cooked through. If you are unsure, simply strain the mixture through a seive to keep the custard smooth and velvety.
While warm add to this
5 tbsps of strong instant coffee crystals stir, until melted. Also add to this
1/2 tsp salt
3 1/2 chilled heavy cream
Taste for sweetness and the coffee flavour you enjoy.
You can add more coffee or sugar at this stage.
Chill overnight and churn in your ice cream maker.
If you wish to make sure the eggs are cooked but do not curdle use a thermometer until it registers 170F/76C.
You can add about 50gm/2 oz of dark chocolate if you like
4 tbsps of Kalhua, Tia Maria or Baileys Irish Cream liquer can also taste good in this icecream.
