Vanilla Ice Cream

  • 9 oz sugar (1.266 cups where 1/4 cup is about .317oz)
  • 8 egg yolk whisked
  • 3 cups half and half
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy cream

scald dairy over medium heat

slowly add sugar to yolks, constantly stirring (yolks lighten in color)

temper dairy into eggs/sugar

heat to 170 slowly and while stirring (easy to curdle/burn near the heating element)

after it cools a bit, add the vanilla




  • Don't do this in the small pot (Don't worry: I know what I mean)
  • I tried making a quarter portion once. I thought it was just a block of ice, but I should have let it thaw a little bit like I do for a full portion

Black Tea Ice Cream

Make vanilla ice cream with the following changes:

  • omit the vanilla (perhaps adding this will enhance flavor? I don't know)
  • brew 4 teaspoons of black tea leaves in the scalded milk for an hour before continuing with recipe

Notes: this is pretty good. The flavor is subtle and not overpowering

Mango Ice Cream

  • 1 mango, peeled & cut into pieces
  • 1 tbsp. plus 1 tsp. lime juice
  • 2 tbsp. honey
  • 1 pt. vanilla ice cream (the above vanilla ice cream recipe yields 1.5 quarts = 3 pints)

Blend the mango pieces, lime juice and honey briefly in an electric blender or food processor. Stir into vanilla ice cream
