Nutmeg Ice-Cream (Grenada)

Known as the Spice Isle, Grenada produces one third of the world's nutmeg. DO NOT substitute powdered nutmeg in this recipe. Once it is ground, nutmeg soon loses the oils which give it flavour and taste so do yourself a 'flavour' and never use that pre-ground stuff again. Show more

  3. Whisk 1/2 cup of the milk mixture into the egg mixture, and whisk the mixture into the remaining milk mixture.
  4. Cook the custard over moderate heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until it registers 175 degrees F. on a candy thermometer.

  6. Freeze the custard in an ice-cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions.

OMG! This is absolutely delicious. I've had my ice cream maker for two years and this is the first I've used it--what an initiation. I would highly recommend this recipe. I am already thinking of what I can serve at my next dinner club so I can make this as the dessert. Thanks for posting. See all activity
