Description

Don’t throw out those leftover candy canes—you’ll need them for this wonderful, bright and creamy frozen treat!

Ingredients

  • 3 cups Whole Milk
  • 1-¼ cup Granulated Sugar, Divided Use
  • 6 whole Large Egg Yolks
  • 1-½ cup Heavy Cream
  • 1-½ teaspoon Peppermint Extract
  • ½ cups Candy Canes Or Peppermint Candy, Crushed
  • Extra Crushed Candy For Garnish

Preparation

Mix the whole milk and 1 cup of the sugar in a medium saucepan. Heat on medium stirring frequently until it reaches 170 F on an instant-read thermometer.

While it’s heating … In a separate medium mixing bowl, whisk the egg yolks and the remaining 1/4 cup sugar together. Whisk until the mixture is foamy and slightly thickened. Set aside until the hot milk is ready.

Slowly temper the egg yolk mixture by drizzling about half the hot milk into the eggs while whisking continuously. Then whisk the tempered egg mixture into the remaining whole milk and sugar mixture in the saucepan. Return the saucepan to medium heat. Cook, stirring continuously with a wooden spoon, until the mixture registers 185 F on an instant-read thermometer or when it is thick enough to coat the back of the spoon. Do not allow the mixture to boil or you’ll make scrambled eggs. When it’s ready remove pan from the heat.

Pour the heavy cream into a large clean glass or metal bowl, set over an ice bath. Pour the heated milk and egg mixture through a fine sieve into the cream. Add the peppermint extract and stir until well blended. Stir the mixture occasionally until it has cooled completely (this should take about 30 minutes.) Then remove the bowl from the ice bath, cover it with a sheet of plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight or at least 8 hours.

Process the chilled mixture in your ice cream maker according to manufacturer instructions. Remove the finished ice cream to a large bowl and mix in the 1/2 cup of crushed peppermint. Store in an airtight plastic container and freeze for several hours before serving. Garnish with additional peppermint if desired.

Makes 1 1/2 quarts.
