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