GREEN TEA POWDER RECIPES
GREEN TEA ICE CREAM
Green tea ice cream is often served as a dessert in Japanese restaurants. Green tea ice cream is called maccha ice cream in Japan. Maccha is tea powder used in Japanese tea ceremonies.
17 ozs. Milk
5 Large Eggs
5 ozs. Sugar
7 ozs. Heavy Cream
1 tbls. Green Tea Powder
Warm up milk (lukewarm). Mix half the sugar and green tea powder in a bowl, and pour in half the milk slowly; stir well. Make sure the powder is completely dissolved. The milk should not be too hot--otherwise, it will ruin the color of green tea.
Mix egg yolks and remaining half of sugar together; stir in rest of warm milk. Heat mixture in a double boiler (or a heavy-bottomed pan, stirring constantly to avoid burning). When the mixture is slightly thickened, add the green tea mixture.
Continue to cook the mixture for another 10 minutes or so (until consistency is thicker and color is more "transparent"). Remove from heat, strain mixture, then cool in ice water, stirring occasionally.
In the meantime, whip the cream until soft peaks form (don't make it too thick). Add the cream to the other mixture; mix well. Pour it into a plastic container. Chill until slightly firm, then stir the mixture once. You will get the smoother texture if you continue to stir it occasionally (every hour) until you finish freezing (takes 6-7 hours).
