I love Coffee Ice cream and I especially love Vietnamese iced coffee, so when I ran across this recipe, I had to save it. Nummy stuff.

24 Hr

Method:

Ice-Cream Maker

Ingredients

2 c
half and half
1/4 c
ground vietnamese coffee
6
egg yolks
1 can(s)
14 oz sweetened condensed milk
1/2 tsp
kosher salt

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Vietnamese Coffee Ice Cream

Yield: makes 1 quart
Active time: 45 minutes
Total time: 45 minutes, plus an overnight chill
Special equipment: ice cream maker
2
Note:"Vietnamese coffee" in the U.S. often contains ground chicory, but this recipe calls Vietnamese-produced coffee, such as Trung Nguyen, a blend of four coffee beans with complex aromas and flavors. If you can't find it, a strong French roast is a decent substitution, though the flavor won't be quite the same.
3
Do not use "sweetened condensed filled milk," made with skim milk and added vegetable oil, in this recipe. Stick to brands that list milk and sugar as the only ingredients.
4
In a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan, bring half and half just to a boil over high heat. Remove from heat as soon as it begins to boil, then stir in coffee and steep for 4 minutes
5
Whisk together egg yolks and condensed milk until thoroughly combined in a large bowl. Ladle about 1/3 of half and half into yolk mixture, whisking constantly, until well combined, then slowly transfer back to saucepan, whisking constantly.
6
Return pan to medium heat and cook, whisking frequently, until a custard coats the back of a spoon and a swiped finger leaves a clean line.
7
Stir in salt to taste. Pour through a fine mesh strainer (it's okay if some coffee grounds make it through) into an airtight container and refrigerate overnight.
8
The next day, churn ice cream according to manufacturer's instructions. Chill ice cream in freezer for 3 hours before serving.
