Black Sesame Ice Cream


YUMM!! Okay, this is by far the best ice cream I have made. I made it a bit too sweet but it taste so much like sesame seed! The recipe below is adjusted for a less sweet ice cream.

Recipe adapted from My Second Breakfast

Black Sesame Paste
Makes a bit less than 1 quart

1 cup black sesame seeds
3 cup milk
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 large egg yolks
2 cups whipping cream
2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Roast sesame seeds over medium heat until you can smell the scent and then set the seeds to cool. Then grind the seeds in a blender (Vitamix works great!) and add 1 cup of milk to the paste until it has a paste consistency.

In a pot, heat up the rest of the milk, sugar, salt and paste until the sugar dissolves.

In a bowl, whisk the egg yolks then add the heated ingredients into the eggs while whisking the whole time. Pour the heated mixture slowly to ensure everything is incorporated well.

Heat the incorporated mixture in a pot over medium heat and stir until it's thick (about 8 minutes).

Pour the mixture into the heavy cream and then add vanilla. Mix until combined and then put it in the fridge to cool overnight.

Put your cooled mixture into your ice cream machine for 30 minutes then freeze for at least 2 hours before consuming!

My mom helped me make the sesame paste so thanks to her! I think I need a vitamix of my own just so I can make this.
