Mixed Berries Chai ice cream

The Mixed Berries Chai ice cream, is an extremely tasty treat for those hot summer days.

 

INGREDIENTS (Time 2 hours)

2 cups cream

1 cup milk

1 teaspoon coriander seeds, toasted (3/4 teaspoon ground)

1 teaspoon berries (about 10), toasted (3/4 teaspoon ground)

 

6 egg yolks

3/4 cup sugar

3/4 teaspoon kosher salt

3 teaspoons of ground Ginger Masala Blend

 

METHOD 

Step 1

In a medium saucepan, bring cream and milk to a simmer. Toast whole spices and stir into dairy along with cinnamon and ginger. Bring dairy to a boil, then remove from heat and cover to steep for 45 minutes.

Step 2

After 45 minutes, return dairy to a boil, then remove from heat and stir in tea leaves. Cover and let steep for 15 minutes.

Step 3

Pour dairy through a fine mesh strainer into a measuring cup or bowl, pressing on tea leaves with a spoon to extract all liquid. In a clean medium saucepan, whisk together egg yolks and sugar until pale in colour and slightly thickened. Slowly add strained dairy, whisking constantly.

Step 4

Heat mixture on medium heat, stirring frequently, until a custard forms on the back of a spoon and a swiped finger leaves a clean line. Stir in salt to taste, then strain custard into an airtight container and chill overnight.

Step 5

The next day, churn ice cream according to manufacturer’s instructions. Transfer to an airtight container and chill in freezer for at least 4 hours before serving.
