Earl Grey Ice Cream | Equal Exchange

Earl Grey Ice Cream


Stir cream, milk, sugar and salt together in a pot and simmer on low heat until the sugar is dissolved. 

Whisk the egg yolks, then slowly add the milk-sugar mixture while whisking constantly. 

Transfer the egg mixture back to the pot. Add the Earl Grey Tea leaves. Cook over low-medium heat while stirring frequently.

After a few minutes, the mixture will begin to thicken and turn a light grey brown as the tea steeps. 

Remove the mixture from the stove and let steep for 5 minutes. Strain the mixture to remove the tea leaves. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

Break out the ice cream maker and enjoy!
