Green Tea Ice Cream
from the kitchen of Sharmagne Leland-St. John
5 large eggs
1 tablespoon matcha powder
3⁄4 cups sugar
1 3⁄4 cups heavy cream
3⁄4cup 1% milk
1⁄4 teaspoon kosher salt
In a medium bowl whisk the egg yolks until broken
up. Add the matcha powder and whisk to completely
incorporate. Add 6 tablespoons (1⁄2) of the sugar
and whisk again. Set aside.
In a heavy non-reactive saucepan, stir together the
cream, milk, the rest of the sugar and the salt. Set
the pan over a medium-high heat until the mixture just
reaches a bare simmer then reduce the heat to medium.
Take out a ladle full of the hot mixture and while
constantly whisking the eggs, add the hot liquid to
the egg mixture. Repeat one more time.
Take a heatproof rubber spatula and stir the cream/
egg mixture slowly back into the saucepan.
Cook carefully over medium heat stirring constantly
until it is thick enough to coat the back of the
spatula and leaves a clear pathway when a fnger is
run across the spatula. Approximately 2 minutes.
Strain the base through a fine mesh strainer into
a clean container. Place the contaner into an ice-
water bath. With a clean spatula occasionally stir
the base until it has cooled. Remove container from
the bath and cover with plastic wrap. Place the con-
tainer in the refrigerator for 2 hours or overnight.
Churn and freeze in your ice cream machine according
put in freezer and chill for 4 hours for a firmer ice
