this ice cream is seriously motherflipping marvelous. i made this for my dad and i am incapable of not licking the spoon after i accidentally drop it in the ice cream over and over...
auditory pairing: blue scholars - bruise brothers (its a filipino and persian duo....coconut and saffron! zing!)
coconut saffron ice cream
yields ~1 pint
adapted from david lebovitz
2/3c whipping cream
1c coconut milk
scant 1/2 tsp saffron threads
1. crush the saffron threads in a small mortar and pestle. in a medium saucepan, bring all ingredients to a boil.
2. reduce the heat and simmer (simma down na!) gently for 10mins, stir occasionally. remove from heat and chill the mixture thoroughly in the fridge.
3. once chilled, churn in your ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions. eat the SHIT out of this ice cream.
if you have a kitchenaid, i seriously advise getting the ice cream attachment. it's way cheaper than buying a lame-o ice cream maker. i say lame-o because i am jealous if you own one.
