If you love to try different flavors of ice cream, and not just the traditional ones, I have just the ice cream flavor for you. Ginger ice cream is an out-of-the-box flavor. It is creamy and delicious, just like your regular ice cream, but with tones of ginger.
I happened to visit my friend’s place some years ago and her mother introduced me to this yummy ginger ice cream. I used to visit her home often and it was during this phase that I learned the ginger ice cream recipe. I prepare it often for my young siblings. No doubt, they love it as much as I do.
To make ginger ice cream, add cream, milk, sugar and ginger in a saucepan. Bring it to a boil and remove it from heat, so ginger gets infused. Beat eggs and sugar until they’re homogeneous. Then, add 1/2 cup of the cream mixture and mix. Add the yolk mix in the saucepan and stir until thick. Strain through a sieve and refrigerate. Chill and then serve.
