Week 31: Caramel Ice Cream

The Recipe
100g sugar, divided
5dl cream, divided 1-4
75g chopped walnuts
1 tsp sea salt
4 egg yolks

Melt half the sugar on a pan over medium heat. This will take awhile, resist the urge to touch it as it's melting, but keep an eye on it - suddenly it's done! Slowly add 1dl cream and bring to a boil. The cold cream will make the caramel stiffen, but it'll soften again after a bit. Add walnuts and let the mixture cool down. The caramel will stiffen a bit as it cools, but it should end up being sticky rather than hard caramel.

Mix egg yolks and sugar until the egg is creamy white. Add the caramel and whisk it until the eggs and the caramel is thoroughly mixed.
In a different bowl whip the cream and add the salt. Carefully fold this into the caramel mix.

Proceed according to the ice cream maker's instructions.

The Verdict
I made this for my DH as he loves caramel ice cream. I've always claimed I didn't like caramel ice cream. I don't like (most) caramels, so it would stand to reason I don't like the ice cream either.

I think a truer statement would be that I don't like most storebought caramel ice cream, because this? This was awesome!!! DEFINITELY something I'll make again!
