White chocolate & black pepper ice cream

August 25, 2010

Another amazing ice cream from Simon

For a full write up of how to make ice cream see here.

You will need:

  • 200g white chocolate
  • 150 ml cream
  • 500 ml full-cream milk
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 50 g sugar
  • Black pepper to taste

1) Roughly beat the egg yolks and sugar together
2) Heat the milk in a saucepan until it’s hot, but not boiling.
3) Pour the milk into the egg & sugar mix, and mix them together
4) Return the mixture to the saucepan, and stir over low to medium
heat until a custard forms.
5) Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or a bowl sitting in a
saucepan of boiling water. Once it’s nice and goopy, add it to the
custard and stir.
6) Put the mix in the fridge and leave until cool. Now add the
(chilled) cream and as much black pepper as you want. Keep in mind
that flavours tend to become less intense as the temperature drops, so
don’t be stingy with the pepper.
7) Pop the whole lot in your ice cream machine and churn it until it
will churn no more.

The bite of the black pepper balances perfectly with the sweet white chocolate for a yin-yang of flavour.

    Oh dear heaven in a handbucket, I want that so badly. I love using “savoury” spices in sweet things… such a recipe might even give Berthillon a run for its money ;)
