Growing up in a Chinese household, eating black sesame desserts like black sesame tang yuan was always a big treat for me. Then I discovered black sesame ice cream and fell in love all over again. The nutty aroma adds much depth and the faint specks of black sesame seeds create a lovely texture. The ice cream literally melts in your mouth.

Steps

1
Done

Make black sesame paste by combining black sesame powder and 3 tablespoons of honey in a small bowl.

Tip: If you don't have black sesame powder, you can grind whole black sesame seeds very finely with a mortar and pestle.

2
Done

Simmer milk over low heat for 5-8 minutes then turn off heat.

3
Done

Whisk egg yolks and sugar in a medium bowl.

Tip: To keep egg yolk only, crack shell in the middle and pour yolk from one half of shell to the other, while letting the egg white drip into a bowl (reserve egg white for other use if you'd like). 

4
Done

Add black sesame paste, roasted black sesame seeds and 1 tablespoon honey to the egg mixture. Whisk to combine.

Tip: If your black sesame seeds are not already roasted, stir them in a small pan over medium heat until they start popping.

5
Done

Add milk slowly to the sesame mixture, whisking to combine.

6
Done

Transfer mixture to a medium pot or pan and simmer over medium low heat until temperature reaches 176 degrees (do not exceed this temperature or eggs will cook). 

7
Done

Transfer mixture to a medium bowl and place the bowl over an ice bath to cool down for about 20 minutes. The mixture will thicken as it cools.

8
Done

While the black sesame mixture is cooling, in a separate medium bowl, whisk together heavy cream and a pinch of salt. Whisk until the cream becomes very thick and looks whipped, about 3-4 minutes.

9
Done

After the black sesame mixture is done cooling (when it thickens), layer the heavy cream all over it. The cream should be softly combined, so do not stir or mix.

10
Done

Turn on ice cream maker and pour ice cream mixture into it slowly. Let it run for about 25 minutes until the ice cream forms. Cover and refrigerate for several hours before serving. Enjoy!
