Jack's Fruit Ice Cream

After trying a delicious frozen drink concoction prepared with jackfruit, I found myself truly delighted with the exotic and yet familiar[ flavor. I found myself on a personal quest to use this unfamiliar fruit in new and exciting ways.]

Yield:
A little more than a quart
Ingredients
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 8 egg large egg yolks
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup natural cane sugar
  • 20 oz can jackfruit in syrup (available in Asian markets)
  • green food coloring (optional)
Directions
  • In a heavy saucepan heat milk, heavy cream, and vanilla bean over medium high heat to a simmer. Turn heat down to medium.

  • In a separate bowl whisk together the eggs yolks, sugar, and salt. Sugar will dissolve when heated.

  • Slowly dizzle this egg/sugar mixture into the simmering milk mixture and whisk. Combining these too quickly will result in "scrambled eggs."

  • After you have added these two mixtures together, reduce the heat to a medium low temperature.

  • Remove the vanilla bean and split lengthwise scraping out seeds. Return the pod and the seeds back to the pot. I like to add several drops of food coloring at this point.

  • Continue to stir until the mixture coats the back of a spoon. Strain mixture through a fine-holed strainer, discarding the vanilla pod and refrigerate the mixture over night.

  • Follow manufacturer's instruction for your ice cream maker, and let the fun begin.

  • Meanwhile, drain the jackfruit and pulse it gently in your processor. We want small pieces of fruit for the ice cream.

  • After about 15 minutes into freezing your ice cream add small pieces of jackfruit to the mixture.

  • Serve your ice cream at your next dinner party and enjoy the mystery when your friends/family try to guess the secret ingredient! The flavor is both refreshing and delicious. Enjoy!
