Salted Caramel Ice CreamFrom notyourmomma 6 years ago
- salted caramel ice cream shopping list
- 1 ¼ cups granulated sugar, divided shopping list
- 2 teaspoons light corn syrup shopping list
- 2 cups cream, preferably organic shopping list
- 2 cups whole milk shopping list
- 10 large egg yolks (see note) shopping list
- ½ teaspoon fleur de sel (sea salt), plus more for serving shopping list
How to make it
- Place ¾ cup sugar and the corn syrup in a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan.
- Do not stir.
- Place the pan over medium-high heat, and cook the mixture to a dark caramel, swirling the pan as it begins to brown to distribute the sugar.
- Add the cream, then slowly add the milk.
- The caramel will seize and harden, but don't worry. Bring the mixture to a boil, and then simmer it, stirring, just until the caramel has dissolved.
- Meanwhile, place the yolks in a large bowl with the remaining ½ cup sugar and the fleur de sel.
- Whisk to combine.
- When the caramel cream is ready, pour a splash of it into the egg mixture to temper, whisking constantly, and then another splash or two for good measure.
- Then pour the tempered egg mixture into the caramel cream. Whisk thoroughly.
- Pour the mixture through a fine-meshed sieve into a medium metal bowl. Place the bowl in an ice bath to cool the mixture completely. Remove the bowl from the ice bath, cover it with plastic wrap, and refrigerate OVERNIGHT.
- Freeze in an ice cream machine according to the manufacturer's directions.
- Serve with additional fleur de sel sprinkled on top. (The ice cream will be quite soft at first but will firm as it freezes.)
- Note: The yolks may not be cooked enough to kill all bacteria, so this recipe is not recommended for pregnant women or anyone with immune deficiencies.
- Makes 1 quart.

Yum. I'm loving the trend now for slightly salted desserts. My obsession these days has been chocolate covered caramels sprinkled w/ course sea salt. Mmmm.. so good. -- So this sounds right up my alley! :) The homemade caramel base sounds amazing too...moregrumblebee in Calgary loved it
