Hello all! We just arrived in Manila so we are here staying at Bellevue Hotel. We ordered a meal for us and also ordered some desserts. We enjoyed the food, we had burgers, sandwiches, green tea ice cream and chocolate cake for dessert.
I am not sure if I havet tried green tea ice cream before but this time, I am loving the taste. I wish we have this in store back home where you can buy and take home but we don't. So we have to make our own. I searched for the recipe and I found one by Emeril Lagasse. I should try this when we get back since I have 2 ice cream maker that I need to put in good use. You can try it too. Below is the recipe.
- 8 large egg yolks
- 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
- Pinch salt
- 1 1/2 cups whole milk
- 1/2 cup loose green tea
- 2 1/2 cups heavy cream
DirectionsIn a large bowl beat the egg yolks with the sugar and salt. Set aside.
In a heavy saucepan, scald the milk. Remove from the heat. Add the tea, cover and steep for 4 minutes. Strain through a fine mesh sieve into a clean pot, pressing with a rubber spatula to extract as much liquid as possible. Add heavy cream and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Ladle 1/3 of the cream mixture into the eggs and whisk well to combine. Add all the egg mixture to the pot and cook over low heat, stirring, until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 5 minutes.Strain through a fine mesh sieve into a clean container and cool in the refrigerator, about 2 hours.Pour into an ice cream maker and process according to the manufacturer's instructions. Transfer to a plastic container and keep in the freezer until ready to serve.
