Matcha Green Tea Ice Cream
from eBook of Sweet and Savory Recipes, by Minnie Jardine

The quintessential matcha recipe. Dreamy.
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/3 cup raw evaporated cane sugar
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 3 tablespoons sifted Matcha powder blended with 1/8 cup water to form a smooth paste
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Scald milk mixture over low heat, stirring constantly to dissolve the sugar, then remove from the heat. In a small mixing bowl whisk the three egg yolks lightly.

Slowly pour 1/4 of hot milk into egg yolks, whisking as you go to temper them, then add the yolk mixture back into the remaining hot milk. Cook, stirring constantly, over low heat until it thickens a bit. Remove from heat and pour back into mixing bowl.

Combine the matcha paste, cream and vanilla and add to the milk mixture. Whisk to blend and cool, then cover tightly and chill thoroughly. Follow the directions for your own ice cream maker.
