Apple Cider Ice Cream

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!

Servings: 6 servings


  • 2 cups apple cider ( I use hard cider but you could use regular)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 stick cinnamon
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 cups 35% cream
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 6 egg yolks lightly whisked


  • 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.
