2 cups (1/2 l) milk
1/2 cup (100 g) sugar
5 egg yolks
1/2 cup (10 cl) whipping cream
1 small can (250 g / 8 3/4 oz) chestnut spread
Chestnut Ice Cream
First, make a custard: Put the
milk in a pot, and bring it to a boil (stir often to prevent it from
burning on the bottom). While the milk is heating, beat the egg yolks
and the sugar in a bowl, until the mixture becomes smooth and
whiter. Pour the boiling milk on the egg and sugar mixture. Put the mixture in a pot
over low heat, and stir constantly. When the mixture becomes slightly
thicker, remove immediately from the heat (before
boiling; if you have a thermometer, don't let the mixture go above
70 C / 158 F).
Let the mixture cool to room temperature; add the
whipping cream and the chestnut spread, and put in your favourite ice-cream maker.
The French brand Clement Faugier makes very high-quality chestnut spread that makes
wonder for this recipe.
