    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    quart

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a bowl, beat the sugar into the eggs until thickened and pale yellow; beat in the cornstarch and set aside.
    2. 2
      Bring the half-and-half to a simmer in a saucepan.
    3. 3
      Slowly beat the hot half-and-half into the egg mixture.
    4. 4
      Pour the entire mixture back into the pan and place over low heat.
    5. 5
      Stir constantly using a whisk or wooden spoon until the custard thickens slightly (be careful not to let the mixture boil or the eggs will scramble).
    6. 6
      Remove from the heat and pour the hot custard through a strainer into a large, clean bowl.
    7. 7
      Let the custard cool slightly, the stir in the cream, peppermint extract, and food coloring; cover and refrigerate until cold or overnight.
    8. 8
      Stir the chilled custard, then freeze in 1 or 2 batches in an ice cream maker by following the manufacturer’s directions.
    9. 9
      When finished, the ice cream will be soft but ready to eat; for firmer ice cream, transfer to a freezer-safe container and freeze several hours.
    10. 10
      *After-Dinner Mint Ice Cream: add ¾ cup chopped chocolate-covered mint candies to the machine when the ice cream is semifrozen; allow the machine to mix in the candy; proceed as directed.
    11. 11
      *Grasshopper Pie Ice Cream: add ½ cup white creme de cacao to the custard before freezing; proceed as directed, adding ½ cup crushed chocolate wafers to the machine when the ice cream is semifrozen; allow the machine to mix in the wafers.

      This is the best and most evil recipe EVER - until my next ice cream creation. I made this recipe last night from "The Ultimate Ice Cream Book: Over 500 Ice Creams, Sorbets, Granitas, Drinks, And More" by Bruce Weinstein, and it is awesome! My husband said it's better (a perfect amount more minty) than store-bought ice cream. After I chilled the custard (just for a few hours), I made it in my Cuisinart ice cream maker, and it only took about 25 minutes. I added 1 c. of chopped Oreos during the last 5 minutes, and it made about 1 1/4 quarts of butt-expanding bliss. Everyone should make this - and then immediately resign themselves to the fact that they'll have to buy pants with elastic, because they'll all be making it at least twice a week for the rest of their lives. ;)
