Ingredients

  • g

  • 2

    cups heavy cream

  • 1

    cup whole milk

  • 2/3

    cup sugar

  • 1/8

    teaspoon fine sea salt

  • 6

    large egg yolks

  • Your choice of flavoring (see grid below, or invent your own)

Directions

1. In a small pot, simmer cream, milk, sugar and salt until sugar completely dissolves, about 5 minutes. Remove pot from heat. In a separate bowl, whisk yolks. Whisking constantly, slowly whisk about a third of the hot cream into the yolks, then whisk the yolk mixture back into the pot with the cream. Return pot to medium-low heat and gently cook until mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon (about 170 degrees on an instant-read thermometer). 2. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl. Cool mixture to room temperature. Cover and chill at least 4 hours or overnight. 3. Churn in an ice cream machine according to manufacturer’s instructions. Serve directly from the machine for soft serve, or store in freezer until needed. Yield: About 1 1/2 pints
