Cardamom Ice Cream Recipe

Prep time: 20 Minutes + Cooling
Moderately Easy
5 large egg yolks
120g caster sugar
250ml double cream
250ml whole milk
Cardamom Spice Drops®, to taste
  1. In a bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and sugar to a pale, thick, glossy paste, then set aside.
  2. Place the cream and milk in a large saucepan, set over medium-low heat, and bring to a simmer
  3.  Add a couple of spoonfuls of the simmering mixture to the egg and sugar paste, whisking constantly, to temper the mixture.
  4. Add the rest of the cream and milk , whisking constantly.
  5. Return to the pan and cook over the lowest heat for approximately 10 minutes, stirring constantly, until thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon.
  6. Pour into a jug or bowl & allow to cool. Cover with clingfilm (touching the top of the mixture) ,and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  7. Add Cardamom Spice Drops® to taste, and stir in well. (I used 10 drops, as I love cardamom, but you may prefer to use less).
  8. Transfer to an ice-cream machine, and churn and freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions. If you do not have an ice-cream machine, pour into a freezer-proof container and transfer to the freezer, stirring with a fork every hour to break up the ice crystals. Repeat  3-4 times, then allow to freeze fully.
