Green Pea Ice Cream

Ingredients Green Pea Ice Cream
  • 3 eggs
  • 100 g (1/2 cup) sugar
  • 200 ml (3/4 cup) whole milk
  • 300 ml (1 1/4 cups) liquid cream
  • 700 g (1 1/2 lb.) shelled Peas
  • 1/2 bunch mint

 Preparation Method

  • Bring a saucepan of salted water to the boil; add the peas and cook for 8 minutes.

  • Drain, and then plunge them immediately into ice water to stop the cooking and set their bright green colour.

  • Drain again; smash the peas in a blender, then put through a strainer to obtain a fine puree.

  • Place in the refrigerator.

  • Bring the milk and cream to the boil. Beat the eggs and sugar in a bowl until the mixture is foamy.

  • Gradually add in the milk and cream, whisking constantly.

  • Pour the mixture into a saucepan and cook over low heat for 10 minutes, stirring with a spatula in a figure-8 pattern.

  • The mixture must not boil. Cool and refrigerate.

  • When the cream is cold, add the pea puree and combine well.

  • Put the mixture into an ice cream maker to freeze until it attains the consistency of ice cream.
