Green Tea Ice Cream Recipe

Ingredients:

* 3 tbs green tea leaves (whole)
* 1 cup heavy cream
* 2 cups cold milk
* 2 egg yolks
* 1 tbs cornstarch
* 1 cup sugar

Preparation:In a saucepan, heat milk slowly to boiling. Then add green tea leaves and cover. Let steep (simmer) for about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, beat egg yolks with sugar and cornstarch. Remove milk from heat and strain out the tea leaves. Whisk in egg mixture, whisking constantly to keep the eggs from cooking in the hot milk. When mixture is starting to thicken, transfer to a larger bowl and allow to cool. Then stir in the heavy cream. Freeze mixture for at least 2 hours before serving.


Honey Ice Cream Recipe

Ingredients:

* 1-1/2 cups half-and-half
* 1-1/2 cups heavy (whipping) cream
* 6 egg yolks
* 1/2 cup plus 2 Tablespoons honey
* 1 Tablespoon unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
* 1 Tablespoon sugar

Preparation:In saucepan over medium heat, combine half-and-half and heavy cream, and heat until almost boiling. While cream heats, in a large bowl, whisk egg yolks and honey until smooth. Gradually whisk in half of the hot cream, then return mixture to saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture visibly thickens and forms a custard, about 3 minutes. Do not let it boil, or it will curdle. Remove from heat, let cool, and then refrigerate to chill thoroughly.

Freeze custard in an ice cream machine according to the manufacturer's directions. Store in freezer until needed.
