that Jacqueline remembers her papa making when she was just a little girl}

Makes 4 to 6 bars

1/2 cup sugar
3 egg yolks
1 cup whole milk
*1 cup red bean paste
*1/2 cup of semi-whole red beans
1-1/2 cups heavy cream
ice cream moulds

*found in the Asian section of your local Supermarket
if you are unable to find red beans, kidney beans can be substituted

1. Beat sugar and egg yolks together in medium bowl until pale yellow

2. Bring whole milk to a boil in medium saucepan and remove from heat. Whisk into egg mixture and pour entire mixture back into saucepan. Stir constantly over medium-low heat with a whisk until custard thickens {about 5 mins.} making sure to scrape bottom of pan.

3. Strain custard into a clean bowl. Mix in red bean paste and semi-whole red beans; stir in heavy cream.

4. Cover and refrigerate overnight before processing, according to ice cream maker's instructions.

5. Pour into ice cream moulds and freeze until firm.

Oh Koralee! I just went over to Jacqueline's blog and I am enchanted! LOVE IT! And I have had green tea ice cream with red beans when I was in Japan many years ago.....SO DELICIOUS! Isn't ice cream the perfect venue for trying the unexpected flavors? The most OUTRAGEOUS flavor I have ever heard of but have never tried is GARLIC ice cream! That is actually sold at Sebastian Joe's here in town, but Gilroy, California is the garlic capitol of the states and they also make this ice cream!

Have a super weekend with your Molly! LOVE! Anita

Those are different. I love the felted cone she created. So very, very cute! xo Diana

Teresa Kasner said...

What an unusual ice cream flavor! The felted cone is just adorable, it would look neat hanging from a holiday tree! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Lynne said...

Interesting indeed . . . Like the felted ice cream one . . .

Duni said...

Koralee, when I first saw this in your lovely book I was immediately transported back to my childhood - I grew up in Asia, so I got my first taste of this type of ice cream way back then!
have a beautiful weekend, many hugs
Duni xo

Oooo! MOLLY IS HOME! Now you must be extremely giddy, over-joyed, filled to overflowing, and I too wish I could sit with you over a cuppa of a nice strong black tea, with milk, of course! And we too are having rainy day after rainy day, but how green are our gardens! The sun has to come out at some point!
