How to make it

  • Using a Microplane grater or the fine side of a box grater, grate the ginger into a smooth paste. Do not throw away the nubs you are holding. Dice them up into tiny pieces. These will add texture and a nice bite to the ice cream (but make sure they are small pieces.)
  • Over a double boiler, add the heavy cream, coconut milk, milk, all the fresh ginger, and candied ginger. Whisk frequently to ensure most of the candied ginger begins to dissolve and to ensure that the fresh pieces do not burn on the bottom.
  • In a large bowl, beat together the egg yolks and sugar.
  • Once the liquid mixture has reached about 130F degrees, begin to temper the egg mixture. Do this by adding a ladle full of the hot liquid to the eggs while whisking. This will prevent the eggs from cooking. You are slowly bringing them up to the temperature of the hotter liquid; this ensures you don’t have scrabbled eggs in your ginger ice cream. Continue to add a ladle full at a time of the hot cream until you’ve added about half the cream to the egg-sugar mix.
  • Add the tempered egg-sugar mixture back to the cream over the double boiler and continue to whisk regularly. Once the temperature of the mixture reaches 160F, remove from heat and let cool.
  • Cover and refrigerate, preferably overnight, but at least until cool.
  • Place in the ice cream maker and churn according to instructions. In mine, it takes about 20 minutes until it looks like soft serve.
  • Place in a container, cover the surface of the ice cream with plastic wrap to prevent a skin from developing, add the additional lid, and freeze for about an hour or until it has finished setting up.
  • Serve with coconut caramel sauce — and maybe even a tad bit of fresh toasted coconut to garnish — and enjoy!
