Courtesy of The incredible edible egg™
Prep Time: 25 Min.
Cook Time: 15 Min.
Chill Time: 1 Hr.
What you need:
* 6 eggs
* 1 1/3 c. sugar
* 2 c. milk
* 3 c. fresh pineapple puree (see Insider Information below)
* 2 c. whipping cream
* 1/4 c. frozen orange juice concentrate, defrosted
* 2 tsp. freshly grated orange peel
* 1 tsp. vanilla
* crushed ice
* rock salt
What to do:
1. Custard Base: Beat eggs and sugar in medium heavy saucepan until blended; stir in milk. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is just thick enough to coat a metal spoon with a thin film and temperature reaches 160°F, about 15 min. Do not allow to boil. Remove from heat immediately.
2. Cool quickly: Set pan in larger pan of ice water; stir occasionally and gently for a few minutes to hasten cooling. Press piece of plastic wrap onto surface of custard. Refrigerate until thoroughly chilled, at least 1 hr.
3. Ice Cream: Pour chilled custard, pineapple puree, whipping cream, juice concentrate, orange peel and vanilla into 1-gallon ice cream freezer can. Freeze according to manufacturer's directions, using 6 parts crushed ice to 1 part rock salt. Transfer to freezer containers, allowing head space for expansion; freeze until firm.
* Pineapple puree: Peel and core a 1-1/2 lb. pineapple; cut into chunks. Process in blender or food processor on medium speed until smooth.
* Beginners may want to cook the custard in a double boiler over simmering water. This method takes longer for the custard to thicken, but allows more control and reduces the risk of curdling.
