Pear + Apple + Ginger Crumble with Cinnamon Ice Cream
Cinnamon Ice Cream
- 3 cups heavy cream
- ¾ cup sugar
- pinch of salt
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- seeds from 1 vanilla bean
- 4 large egg yolks
- In a saucepan, combine the heavy cream, sugar, salt, cinnamon and vanilla extract along with vanilla bean seeds over medium heat. Bring to a simmer.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg yolks. In a slow stream, gradually add the hot cream mixture to the eggs, stirring constantly to incorporate.
- Once well combined, transfer the custard back to the saucepan and continue to cook over medium-low heat until mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Stir continuously.
- Strain the custard into a container and let it cool before tranferring to the fridge. Once the mixture is chilled, pour into an ice cream maker and churn until frozen.
- Transfer the ice cream to an airtight container and freeze until firm.
