Goatucation: Goat's Milk Ice Cream

As I have mentioned in the past, the publicist makes many things with my rich milk. One of the things she and the male person like the best is yummy ice cream. She made some when our visitors came and she made another batch this weekend. Mmmmm.

It starts, of course with my rich milk! She puts it in her pot with a vanilla bean that has been split and scraped.  She heats this just to boiling and sets it aside.



Then she takes 8 egg yolks. This is called French vanilla ice cream because it is custard based which is why it uses so many egg yolks. it is very rich.



The egg yolks go in her mixer with two cups of sugar.



They get all mixed up.



Then she slowly adds the heated milk to the egg/sugar mixture. You have to do this slowly or the egg yolks will curdle and it will make a big ole mess.



After it is all mixed together it goes back in the pot and gets heated up until it thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon or spatula as the case may be....



More of my rich milk and a little bit of heavy cream are waiting to be added. You can make the ice cream with just my rich milk but it is very, very hard. The heavy cream makes it a bit smoother, a bit richer and fluffier and much smoother.



They get added it stirred up. It is a lovely soft yellow color.



Then it sits overnight in the refrigerator to get good and cold.

The next day it goes into the publicist's ice cream maker where it spins and spins and spins.



Then after it hardens she serves it with my goat's milk caramel.



She says it's very yummy!

Tomorrow:  Where did the pine pile go?

  21. Thank you everyone for your nice comments about my rich milk ice cream.

    I would think one could make ice cream with canned milk. It would probably just be a little bit sweet so I might add a bit less sugar... but I think it would take some experimentation.
