Beet ice cream
2 cups of cream
1 and 1/4 cup sugar
4 egg yolks
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 stick of cinnamon
6 med/small beets roasted, peeled and pureed (about one cup)
place the cream, cloves and cinnamon and 1 cup of sugar in a sauce pan and heat till steaming but not boiling
beat egg yolks with 1/4 cup sugar till pale yellow
Temper eggs and combine eggs with cream mixture, bring to a boil while stirring constantly then take off heat.
Add pureed beets and mix to combine.
Chill in fridge overnight.
Follow directions for your ice cream machine, to make ice cream out of chilled mix.
This has a very strong beet flavor, which I like, it's got a bit of a vegetable texture too, I guess the mix can be strained after combining with the cream to minimize that.
