Maple-Walnut Ice Cream Recipe
- 4 egg yolks
- 3 cups table cream
- 3/4 cup walnut pieces
- 1 cup amber maple syrup
- Beat egg yolks.
- Put table cream in a sauce pan and bring almost to a boil.
- Beat heated cream into eggs.
- Mix in maple syrup just before freezing in ice cream machine.
- When almost done, stir in walnut pieces.
Note: This also makes a good Maple Ice Cream Recipe.
If you can get Grade B maple syrup, use it instead and reduce it to half-a-cup (you may need to experiment here; possibly 3/4 cup would be better).
Note: I used to recommend getting Grade C, but apparently the high-end of that has been renamed Grade B, and the low end of that is illegal to sell in retail stores. Be careful with the cream: If you decrease the milkfat content, then the ice cream will be slushy and have a poor texture.
