In my previous post I mentioned that I was on ice cream making spree. I have discovered the excellent quality of home made ice cream and how different it is from the general store-bought variety. One of the trials was to make David Lebovitz's Green Tea Ice Cream. I had purchased some good quality matcha from the famous Ippodo in Kyoto last year and decided to make use of it. Good quality matcha contributes to the lovely green colour of this ice cream. Using an inferior quality green tea power results in an ice cream which will not look as attractive.
For those green tea afficados, here's the recipe. You won't regret it.
Green Tea Ice Cream (Makes about 1L)
- 1 Cup (250ml) Whole Milk
- 3/4 Cup (150g) Sugar
- Pinch of Salt
- 2 Cups (500ml) Heavy Cream
- 4 teaspoons Matcha (green tea powder)
- 6 Large Egg Yolks
- Warm milk, sugar and salt in a saucepan.
Its really very yummy. You have to try it!
