  • 10g of spices gives a quite powerful flavour, use a little less if you like.
  • Mix the dry ingredients well. (important)
  • Add the milk, cream and egg yolks to a pot.
  • Whisk in the dry ingredients. (Or use a handheld blender)
  • Slowly heat to 83C (181F).
  • Transfer to ziplock bag and cool in water or ice water.
  • Age in fridge for at least 4 hours.
  • Strain using a fine mesh sieve to remove some of the spices, I felt they gave a dry texture otherwise.
  • Run in ice cream machine.

  1. Very good recipe, but I replaced the powdered milk and the whole milk with evaporated non fat skim milk and no stabilizers. It turned out superb. Thank you.
