There's not a drop of food-coloring in this old-fashioned ice cream. Its pale color and sprightly flavor speak to its purity and its short ingredient list: milk, cream, sugar, eggs, and fresh-from-the-garden mint.
Just read over the recipe and maybe it is because they say to use the whole egg. I believe normally you would only use the yolk, at least that what it seems like with all the other recipes. Perhaps a mistake with the authors.
Maybe it happened when you tempered the eggs with the hot liquid.. it is best to add the hot stuff little by little to the eggs to warm them up gently instead of adding it all at once and accidently cooking them. Not sure if this is your case, but hopefully this ice cream taste yummy anyway, I want to try it! :)
I made this and followed the recipe to a T. My husband and I could taste the egg. I imagine that I did something wrong but can't figure out what. Any ideas? I didn't let the egg simmer. I have no idea but this was the first time I made ice-cream with egg. I would love help.
