Hi, I'm Natasha Levitan for About.com Food. Today I'm going to show you how to make black sesame ice cream.

Black Sesame Ice Cream Ingredients

For this recipe, you'll need:
  • 3 tablespoons black sesame seeds crushed and roasted
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • ice cream maker

Combine the Cream and Sugar

In a medium saucepan, add cream, milk, and half of the sugar. Whisk them together, turn the heat on high, and bring the mixture to boil. Then turn the heat off.

Make the Egg Yolk Mixture

Crack the eggs over the side of the bowl, and separate the egg yolks and egg whites into two separate containers.

In a small saucepan, whisk together egg yolks and sugar until well combined. Turn the heat on low.

Combine the Egg and Cream Mixtures

Add yolk egg mixture to the cream mixture. Turn the heat on low and cook for 5 minutes, or until the mixture achieves a custard-like consistency.

Pour into your ice cream maker, and follow the instructions until it is ready. Serve your ice cream with fruit or jam.
