Burnt Sugar Ice Cream
Updated: Mar 23
It’s really starting to get hot here in Arkansas. One of the best ways to cool off is be eating ice cream. This week, I will share with you two different recipes. Ice cream machines are not expensive. I think every home in the south should have one.
3 cups Sugar, divided
6 large Eggs, slightly beaten
Pinch of Salt
2 quarts Heavy Whipping Cream, divided
2 teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
In a heavy skillet over medium heat, cook 2 cups of the sugar, stirring, until it caramelizes and is nicely brown. Remove from heat and set aside. In the top of a double boiler, combine beaten eggs, 1 cup sugar, salt and 1 quart whipping cream. Simmer gently and stir until the custard has thickened. Carefully add the caramelized sugar and stir to blend. Strain and cool. Meanwhile, beat 1 quart whipping cream until slightly thick. Add vanilla to the cooled custard and fold in the beaten whipped cream. Freeze according to ice cream machine’s directions.
Good Cooking, Good Eating and Good Living!!!
