An outstanding, creamy boozy Ice Cream that mixes Peaches, Gin and Earl Grey Tea!
- Difficulty: Intermediate
In a medium saucepan, over medium-high heat, heat cream, whole milk, HALF of the sugar and salt. Let this almost come to a boil and reduce down to low-med (you want a gentle simmer). Add your Earl Grey Tea Bags once it starts to simmer.
While that gets to a simmer, whisk together egg yolks in a bowl with the rest of the sugar, until lighter in colour. Add 1 cup of the hot mixture base into your bowl and whisk to combine. Add the contents of your bowl BACK into the saucepan.
Cook this mixture until it reaches 175 degrees Fahrenheit and then take it off the stove.
Strain through a fine mesh strainer into a fresh bowl and add peach juice. Cover and completely chill the liquid in the fridge (approximately 8 hours)
The next day, you'll want to quarter your peaches and pulse through a food process 4-5 times. You want a bit of juice from it, but still small chunks of peaches. Add this and your Gin to your ice cream base and give this a stir.
Position your ice cream maker, add the liquid and follow the directions of the manufacture. For me, I added the liquid, put the stand up mixer on 'STIR' and let this stir for approximately 20-30 minutes.
Dump the ice cream into a container. Cover the ice cream and place it back into the freezer for an additional 3 hours before serving.
