DIRECTIONS

  • Breathe in the beauty of Frankincense, close your eyes and travel to the exotic heart of Oman.
  • On your voyage you’ll need little more than cream, milk, sugar, eggs and… 100% pure Frankincense oil (Boswellia Sacra).
  • First, whip three golden balls of sunshine (egg yolks) with a 1/2 cup of sugar, You want the mixture to become thick and soft yellow.
  • Meanwhile, heat up the milk, cream and remaining sugar in a medium pot. Slide off the stove right before it reaches a bubble and whisk the hot liquid a little at a time into your egg mixture.
  • Return to medium-low heat and cook until thickened and the velvety mixture coats the back of a spoon.
  • Even the steam crawls through the air like incense, Beautiful.
  • Whisk in the frankincense drops to taste and strain. Tip: the oil will want to separate so move quickly to incorporate it (as though you’re making salad dressing). Chill the mixture in an ice bath or overnight in the refrigerator.
  • Churn in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Enjoy the moment.
  • Wrap yourself in relaxation.
  • Let the ice cream lift your senses and encourage a smile to curl up from the corner of your lips.
  • It’s worth it.
