This is a great ice cream flavour for fall! It goes well with apple pie, cobblers or crisps. This uses heavy cream and egg yolks so it is quite rich. You only need a small amount to satisfy!
Apple Cider Ice Cream
Combine apple cider, sugar and cinnamon stick in a sauce pan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and simmer until it is reduced to 2/3 cup. This may take 25 minutes or more.
Remove from heat and remove cinnamon stick. Stir in milk and then cream. Mix well. Then add the cinnamon and egg yolks. Whisk until well incorporated and smooth.
Return sauce pan to medium heat and cook, stirring often until the mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. This may take about 20 minutes. Pour custard through a fine strainer to a medium bowl and cool.
Refrigerate until chilled (a couple of hours at least).
Process chilled custard in your ice cream maker according to machine's instructions. Transfer to a storage container and freeze at least 4 hours.
