we all scream for…

Boredom finally got the best of me this afternoon… rainy weather prevented me from doing anything outside so I decided to whip up some homemade ice cream! Not just your plain old vanilla or chocolate though… something spicy and delightful. So ginger ice cream it was! There is a recipe I use for this, but add my own little bump up to make it extra special…
Heavy cream [or half and half], sugar, vanilla, fresh ginger, chopped candied ginger and eggs… After heating the heavy cream, sugar, vanilla and ginger to a boil it was steeped to release all of the flavors. Once fully steeped, the mixture was reheated to a boil, strained and tempered into the eggs and some additional sugar that was whipped together. Off the heat the mixture was chilled down and then poured into the ice cream maker to churn away till thick and velvety!
Once done some candied ginger was stirred into the mix for a little added texture and heat, everything was scooped into plastic quart containers and placed in the freezer to firm up even more until it is ready to be eaten…

at a low simmer…
