Maple Syrup Ice Cream recipe

Summer is definitely over and Autumn is slowly taking over, but fear not I still making ice cream!  I can't resist, this one is another winner.  Sometime ago I was given some Clark's Maple Syrup by the lovely people at Wildcard. I decide to experiment with recipes for ice cream to celebrate the beginning of the Autumn. Nice result! Added a few fresh and seasonal figs and voila!



Maple syrup ice cream
Yield: 600ml

Ingredients

2/3 cup maple syrup (150ml)

1 3/4 cups heavy cream (375ml)

3/4 cup whole milk (75ml)

4 large egg yolks

1/4 teaspoon of maldon salt


Method:

1.Prepare an ice water bath by filling a large bowl halfway with ice and water. 
2.Heat the maple syrup in a small saucepan over medium heat, simmering until it’s reduced by a quarter, about 5 minutes. Set aside.

3.Heat the cream and milk in a medium saucepan over medium heat until just simmering, about 5 minutes. 
4.Meanwhile, whisk the yolks in a medium heatproof bowl until light in color and thickened slightly, about 2 minutes.

5.Once the milk mixture is simmering, remove from heat and pour about 1/2 cup into the yolks, whisking constantly. 
6.Return the yolk mixture to the saucepan with the remaining milk mixture and place over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring constantly, until the custard is thick and coats the back of a spoon, about 3 minutes. (When you run your finger through the custard, a line should hold and not run back into itself.)

7.Remove the custard from heat and stir in the maple syrup reduction and salt. 
8.Pour the custard through a fine-mesh strainer into a large heatproof bowl and place over the ice bath until chilled, about 15 minutes. 
9.Cover and place in the freezer overnight. The ice cream will be the right consistency the next day.
