Green Tea and Soy Sauce Ice Cream recipe
- 3 egg yolks
- 125g (4 1/2 oz.) granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons soy sauce
- 200 ml milk
- 100 ml heavy cream
- 2 teaspoons (10g) granulated sugar for whipping heavy cream
- 1 Cup strongly brewed green tea (1 1/2 Teaspoons green tea leaves, with 250 ml boiled, not boiling, hot water)
Mix egg yolks with sugar and soy sauce.
Add milk to the egg mixture and strain. Cook over very low heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spatula until the mixture starts steaming and thickens slightly.
Remove from heat and put pan in cold water; mix in cold green tea.
Process mixture in an ice cream maker until partially frozen. Add heavy cream that has been whipped with sugar until soft peaks form. Continue processing until the mixture hardens.
Serve with nuts or praline.
note that this japanese green tea ice cream isn't a strong green colour compared to others, I think the commercial green tea ice cream that is around must add colouring
