ingredients Honey sesame ice cream
- 200 g milk
- 200 g cream
- 80 g honey (eg. Acacia honey*)
- 50 g Ice base
(consisting of: 9 g Inulin*, 9 g Skimmed milk powder*, 32 g Dextrose*, one knife tip each Locust bean gum* and Guar gum*)
- 1 pinch of salt
- 30 g unpeeled* or hulled sesame seeds* (s. Tips)
- some butter
Preparation honey sesame ice cream
- In a pan, toast sesame seeds in butter while stirring. Do not let it get too dark. Put the finished sesame seeds in a bowl and let cool.
- In a saucepan, heat the milk, cream and salt while stirring until just before boiling. This changes the structure of the ice cream mass.
- Turn off the stove (e.g. gas or induction) or remove the pot from the stove. Add the ice cream base or individual components while stirring. Stir until everything has dissolved and no lumps are visible.
- Cool down to 40°C (s. Tips) and add the honey. Stir in well with a whisk until the honey is completely dissolved.
- Leave to infuse in the refrigerator. Either overnight or until the ice cream mixture has cooled completely.
- Blend and froth with a hand blender or milk frother before freezing.
The ice cream machine prepare and pre-cool for a few minutes, depending on the model. Switch on the mixer and add the ice cream mixture (duration approx. 30 minutes). Just before the end, while the ice cream machine continues to run, add the sesame seeds.
Alternatively in the freezer Allow to freeze. To do this, mix well with a hand mixer every 30 minutes (total time about 4 hours). One Step by step guide and tips and tricks can be found in my post on making ice cream in the freezer. After the final mixing, stir in the sesame seeds.
If the ice cream has been in the freezer for a longer period of time, it will become harder and should be left to thaw in the refrigerator for about 20-30 minutes before eating, depending on the quantity.
Tips and things to know
- At Sesame you can Peeled or unpeeled take. The unpeeled is lighter and lacks the outer shell. The unpeeled has more bite and even more nutrients. I used to use peeled. But now I only buy unpeeled. The ice cream is finer with hulled sesame.
- Honey should as far as possible not heated above 40°C otherwise valuable ingredients will be damaged. Therefore, we add the honey only at the end.
- You can use for this ice cream the various kinds of honey use. Personally I like the mild, floral acacia honey* is best in this combination. You have to test this out for yourself.
- To serve, you can simply sprinkle the ice cream with a few sesame seeds and drizzle honey over the top.
