Homemade green tea ice cream recipe
Yuck, way too 'custardy'! But to be fair we tried it fresh out of the ice cream maker, so it was more of a soft serve.. I imagine when it's frozen more it might taste less sweet? Next time I'd likely add more milk and reduce the sugar, and mayhaps reduce the number of eggs to 4 or 2 (we used 6 yolks from our backyard hens. Are storebought eggs more bland??). I've been making Ben & Jerry recipes which use two whole eggs, and they definitely don't come out this sweet and custardy (I substitute half cup of sugar for the 3/4). It also didn't have a very green tea taste to it (maybe because so much of it was sieved out?). Since that 'bitter' green tea taste wasn't strong enough, I imagine that's also a contributing reason to why it tasted too sweet. I might try whisking the green tea first in some hot liquid to get it to dissolve properly, letting that cool, then mixing it with the egg/sugar next time, and not bother with sieving. No problems with scrambling the eggs, but I had it on very very low, which took a lot of time for it to finally get to 170. Overall a lot more trouble to make than typical ice cream. I'll give it a try again with modifications and see if it's more to my liking.
