“I "iron chefed" this one based on items I had on hand. Amazingly, it turned out to be the best ice cream I ever had. When I tasted the custard in the fridge, I very seriously considered serving the custard as dessert without even churning it into ice cream. The taste is amazing. Very very rich, but not heavy, not too sweet, with lots of flavor nuance. Truly premium. Prep time does not include time to chill in the fridge.”
2/3 cup
