Green Tea Ice Cream (Matcha Ice Cream)

March 20, 2010

1 pint Strauss family creamery organic half & half
1 pint Strauss family creamery organic whipping cream
1 T mirin
5 tsp matcha
2/3 C sugar
2/3 C water

Combine sugar and water and heat over medium heat, bringing to a very light simmer. Allow to gain a very small amount of color, turn off heat, immediately add mirin & stir. Take 2-3 T of the sugar mixture and mix with the matcha well. Less liquid will allow it to be smoother so add slowly when mixing.

Combine the sugar syrup and the cream/half & half into a larger non-reactive container, and chill thoroughly before using in your ice cream maker.

Makes a very creamy, dense, delicious green tea ice cream served best on black.
