The last batch of beer was really good.
So good in fact that I couldn’t bring myself to throw out the dregs left in the keg after the wedding. But, what was I to do with a quart of left-over, completely flat stout?
Make ice cream, of course!
Stout Ice Cream Recipe
based on the recipe featured at BoingBoing:
- 16 oz stout (homemade is best :)
- 3 egg yolks
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 cup cream
- 1 cup half & half
Bring the stout to a boil and allow to reduce to about 1 cup. Will only take a few minutes in a wide saucepan. Yes, this will remove the alcohol
Meanwhile, whisk the egg yolks & sugar together.
Reduce the heat and add the dairy. Bring to a simmer. Very slowly stir into the egg mixture while whisking. Continue to stir for a few minutes while the mixture is thickens a bit.
Refrigerate until completely cold. Then churn, churn, churn.
