Firelit Ice Cream

September 6th, 2011

UPDATE: These girls teach us how to make a boozier ice cream by adding gelatin. WATCH VIDEO on Gizmodo. And they should know, they wrote a book on the subject.

We made some very tasty Firelit ice cream to celebrate the last days of summer.

3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
6 egg yolks
2 cups heavy cream
UPDATE: 10 oz of (refrigerated) Firelit Coffee Liqueur
UPDATE: 1 packet (1 tablespoon) gelatin
UPDATE: 1/ cup of water
1 tsp. vanilla extract

1. Whisk together sugar, salt, and egg yolks in a 4-qt. saucepan until smooth.
2. Stir in cream and cook over medium heat, stir constantly until the mixture thickens, about 4 minutes.
UPDATE: 3. Mix 1 packet of gelatin and 1/4 cup of water together over medium heat until it thickens and add to mixture.
4. Pour mixture through a fine strainer into a medium bowl, whisk in Firelit and vanilla, refrigerate until chilled.
5. Process in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions. Freeze until firm, at least 4 hours.

Makes 1 quart
