Homemade Coffee Ice Cream Recipe
Makes 6-8 servings
Instructions: In a large saucepan, combine half-and-half, whipped cream, sugar, and coffee beans. Stir well. Heat to very hot but still a bit below boiling, stirring to make sure that the sugar does not stick to the bottom. Remove from heat and allow steeping for 45 minutes, to develop a good coffee flavor.
In a small mixing bowl, beat egg yolks and sugar until pale yellow and thick. Pour in 1/4 of the warm cream, whisking constantly, then whisk the rest.
Return custard to a clean pan and cook over medium heat until a light custard has formed (about 175º F (85º C)). Do not overcook.
Remove from the heat, strain into a clean bowl, cover with plastic wrap and cool. Transfer to an ice-cream machine, following manufacturer’s directions.
Homemade Caramel Ice Cream Recipe
Makes 10-12 servings
Ingredients: 2 cups (500 ml) whipped cream, 1 cup (250 ml) half-and-half cream, 1 cup (250 ml) milk, 1 cup granulated sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 3 tablespoons water, 8 egg yolks
Instructions: In a large saucepan, combine whipped cream, half-and-half, and milk. Stir well. Heat creamy mixture to scalding (just below boiling) and remove from the heat.
In a small heavy bottom pan, combine sugar, vanilla extract, and water. Stir well and place over high heat. Swirl the pan to dissolve sugar. Cook until the sugar caramelizes and turns dark brown. Have a large pan of cold water ready. As soon as the caramel starts to smoke, remove it from the heat immediately, and lower the pan briefly into cold water. This will prevent it from continuing to cook.
Pour the warm cream into the caramel, whisking the cream as you do so. Return to the heat and stir until caramel is dissolved. Remove from the heat.
Beat the eggs yolks until well blended. Pour the caramel cream into beaten yolks, whisking continuously. Pour the mixture into a clean pan and return to the heat. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until a light custard has formed.
Remove from the heat and strain into a clean bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and allow cooling. Transfer to an ice-cream machine, following manufacturer’s directions.
