DIRECTIONS

  • Melt butter in a heavy skillet over a low heat. Add the pecans and salt and sauté, stirring constantly, until pecans start to turn brown.
  • Drain the butter into a small bowl and transfer the pecans to another bowl and let cool.
  • Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Whisk the sugar, a little at a time, then continue whisking until completely blended, about 1 minute more. Pour in the cream and milk and whisk to blend.
  • Add the melted butter and blend.
  • Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze following the manufacturer's instructions.
  • After the ice cream stiffens (about 2 minutes before it is done), add the pecans, then continue freezing until the ice cream is ready.
  • Makes generous 1 quart.
  • Sweet Cream Bases----:
  • •Favorite Sweet Cream Base: Most popular base, has creamy texture, medium body, and a subtle, understated taste. It's especially good as a background for fruit, cookies, and candy.
  • 2 large eggs 3/4 cup sugar 2 cups heavy or whipping cream 1 cup milk Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Whisk in the sugar, a little at a time, then continue whisking until completely blended, about 1 minute more. Pour in the cream and milk and whisk to blend.
  • •Simple Sweet Cream Base: This simple recipe is made with a minimum of ingredients and requires no cooking.
  • It makes a very creamy ice cream with 25% butterfat, but it does not store well in home freezers, so be prepared to eat it all.
  • 2 cups heavy or whipping cream 3/4 cup sugar 2/3 cup half-and-half Pour the cream into a mixing bowl.
  • Whisk in the sugar, a little at a time, then continue whisking until completely blended, about 1 minute more. Pour in the half-and-half and whisk to blend.
  • •Condensed Milk Sweet Cream Base: This recipe makes a less creamy, less rich ice cream.
  • Ben likes the slightly "cooked" flavor of the sweetened condensed milk.
  • 2 cups light cream 1 cup sweetened condensed milk, cold Whisk the light cream and the sweetened condensed milk together in a mixing bowl until blended.
