Hear me out here.
It’s weirdly good. It’s like a creamy honey mustard dressing…but solid.
And it goes so well with mini pretzels! That crunch. And it goes with the general savouriness of the ice cream.
I got the original idea while watching an episode of Good Mythical Morning and they loved mustard ice cream. Next time I want to actually get some sausages and eat them with the ice cream. Gotta go all out.
And the finishing touch is a light sprinkling of salt to contrast with the mild sweetness of the ice cream.
I got the recipe from here but converted everything to grams and converted half-and-half to cream and milk since it’s kind of hard to find half-and-half in the UK.
- 25g sugar (1/8 cup)
- 43g honey (1/8 cup)
- Pinch of turmeric (optional, for colour)
- 3 egg yolks
- 90g double cream
- 268g whole milk (or you can substitute the cream and milk for 358g/1.5 cups half-and-half)
- 1-2 tbsp whole grain mustard (depending on strength of mustard and your preferences)
- About 150g salted mini pretzels, toasted
- Some flaky sea salt
- Mix the sugar, honey, turmeric, and egg yolks together in a saucepan.
- Add the cream and milk into the saucepan. Whisk over medium heat until mixture is thickened and coats the back of your spoon. Do not allow the mixture to boil.
- Transfer to a container and chill overnight.
- Meanwhile, chop 3/4 of the pretzels into pieces (halves to quarters). Freeze the pretzel pieces.
- The next morning, before churning the ice cream, mix in the mustard to the ice cream mixture.
- Churn the ice cream mixture in an ice cream machine until desired consistency.
- When the ice cream is ready, scoop the ice cream into a container and scatter in some chopped frozen pretzel pieces.
- Top with the remaining toasted pretzels and sea salt.
- The turmeric’s just for colour. Don’t actually add enough such that you’ll be able to taste the turmeric. I wanted the ice cream to actually be yellow, there’s no need for subtlety when it comes to mustard ice cream.
- Freezing the pretzel pieces will help in stopping the pieces from getting soggy (hopefully).
