Just a note….MOST of my recipes are pretty fool proof and simple… the only recipe that is a bit complicated is my bolgnaise and now.. this… BUT i am telling you its DAMN worth the patience and wait.. this recipe is OUT of this world amazingggggg…. ENJOY!!!!!
4 cups of whipping cream
1 cup of whole milk
1 tsp of vanilla
3 large eggs
1 large egg yolk
1/4 cup of sugar
1 cup of maple syrup
1/2 pound of cooked bacon pieces
1 cup of reduced canadian whiskey
1 teaspoon of bacon fat
In a sauce pan, reduce whiskey (be careful for the flame) for about half an hour. Remove from heat, add Maple Syrup & continue to reduce for about another 15 minutes.
While whiskey sauce is reducing, combine milk, vanilla and cream in another medium saucepan bring the mixture to a slow boil over medium heat reduce to LOW and simmer for 30 minutes.
While your two above mixtures are simmering, in a bowl combine eggs, yolks & sugar & mix with a hand mixture until it becomes thick like mayonnaise (this helps the ice cream get its chewy texture)
Ok now… here is the important part … add hot milk mixture to egg mixture VERY slowly so as not to cook the eggs too fast. (about 1 cup at a time) with the hand mixer keep pouring in one cup at a time while you mix the two mixtures together. Once all mixed together pour it all back in the pan to slowly cook, add the bacon fat at this point (stirring often) the mixture until it is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.
Pour into a bowl, cover and let chill for 30 minutes.
WHEW … ok NOW your mixture is ready for the ice cream machine. pour the chilled custard into the ice cream machine (I use cuisinart) and turn on. After about 15 minutes, SLOWLY add the maple whiskey mixture (hopefully it ribbons for you!) and then add the bacon!
Let it continue to churn for about another 15 minutes… and ENJOY!!! i put mine into a lined bread pan and left over night so it got REALLY hard (the way I like my ice cream)
SERVE and enjoy! (imagine this on pancakes or waffles in the morning!?!?!? YUMMMM)
Try out this recipe and let me know how it turns out!!!!!
HAPPY CANADA DAY!!!!
