DIRECTIONS

  • Bring the milk to a simmer in a medium-sized saucepan.
  • Stir in the basil and cinnamon stick, cover, and remove from heat.
  • Steep 15 minutes, then pour the milk through a sieve, pressing down on the solids to extract all the liquid.
  • Whisk together the egg yolks and sugar in a large mixing bowl.
  • Whisk the cinnamon-basil flavored milk.
  • Pour it back into the saucepan and stir constantly with a rubber spatula over medium heat just until the custard thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon (180 degrees) but no further or it may curdle.
  • Pour the custard back into the mixing bowl and cool, either over ice or in the refrigerator, until the custard is very cold.
  • Whisk in the heavy cream.
  • Freeze in an ice cream maker.
  • Store in a covered container in the freezer until firm enough to scoop.
