Recipe type: Dessert
Ingredients
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 3 cups coconut milk
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons powdered gelatin
  • 8 ripe apricots, pitted
  • honey to taste (my apricots were sweet enough that I didn't feel I needed honey)
  • 2 tablespoons of Apricot Extract or Vanilla Extract
  • Caviar from one vanilla bean, optional
Instructions
  1. INSTRUCTIONS FOR ICE CREAM BASE RECIPE
  2. Do not turn heat on yet.
  3. Whisk egg yolks. Add to a medium sized pan.
  4. Place 1 cup of coconut milk in the pan.
  5. Add ¼ cup honey.
  6. Sprinkle gelatin into the mix.
  7. Begin heating mixture on medium heat. Whisk constantly for about five minutes, or until temperature reaches 170°F. I prefer to use a thermometer and check the temperature otherwise there is the risk of heating too hot and the pudding will separate.
  8. Remove from heat immediately once the temperature reaches 170°F and move to a heat proof bowl.
  9. Allow to cool for 20-30 minutes and place in the refrigerator overnight.
  10. PREPARE APRICOTS
  11. Take 4 of the apricots and mash into chunks.
  12. Take the other 4 apricots and heat in a pan with a tablespoon of water.
  13. Heat until the apricots are soft enough to mash with a potato masher.
  14. Puree the 4 cooked apricots to make a sauce.
  15. Mix the raw chunks into the puree.
  16. Pour into a heat proof bowl.
  17. Allow to cool 20-30 minutes and place in the refrigerator overnight.
  18. NEXT DAY OR ONCE FULLY CHILLED - MIXING ICE CREAM TOGETHER
  19. Remove ice cream base from refrigerator and mix in 2 cups of coconut milk, Apricot or Vanilla Extract and vanilla bean caviar.
  20. Place in ice cream maker and process until firm.
  21. If you don't have an ice cream maker you can place mixture into a bowl and stir every 10 minutes until the mixture is solidified to your liking.
  22. Reserve some of the apricot "jam" for topping, if desired.
  23. Swirl apricot "jam" into the ice cream.
  24. You can use the remaining apricot "jam", if any is left over, just like you would any kind of jam.
