How to make it

  • Have two bowls filled with ice ready and nestle two empty smaller bowls in each of those larger ice-filled bowls.
  • Combine 2/3 cup sugar with 2/3 cup water in the saucepan over medium heat. Stir until the sugar dissolves into the water, forming a simple syrup. Stir in the cumin, cayenne, lime juice, and salt. When thoroughly combined, introduce 1 cup of black beans and simmer for about three minutes to allow the beans to soak up the syrup.
  • Blend the beans with an immersion blender and a cover or in a regular blender or food processor. Remove the blended mixture to one of the bowls sitting in the ice bath to cool. Stir in the extra 1 tablespoon of whole unblended cooked black beans while the mix is still hot. Stir occasionally to let the heat out of the mixture.
  • Wash your saucepan well. Place over medium heat. Combine and heat the cream and milk in the pan. Bring the mix almost to a boil, scalding the milk.
  • While the dairy heats, in another bowl combine 2/3 cup white sugar with the egg yolks and vanilla. Mix until thoroughly combined.
  • When the milk is just shy of boiling or just starting to boil, reduce the heat to medium. Add 1/4 cup of the milk and cream mix to the egg and sugar mix and stir together. This is tempering the mix so you don't cook the eggs when you now add the sugar and milk mixback into the cooking cream and milk mix. Stir very well to combine.
  • Continue to simmer until the mixture thickly covers the back of a spoon. Pour into the other bowl nestled in ice and stir to help cool the mixture down.
  • Once the bowls are cooled to room temperature, mix the black bean mix into the cream mix. Stir very well, then remove to the refrigerator to cool further.
  • Follow the instructions to your ice cream maker to finish the ice cream. If you freeze this overnight, it will set up very hard. You may need to remove it to the refrigerator a half hour or so before serving for the best texture.
