Roasted Chestnut Ice Cream

This roasted chestnut ice cream recipe was adapted from America’s Test Kitchen vanilla ice cream recipe – we made adjustments for our 1 1/2 quart ice cream maker as well as factored in the addition of the roasted chestnuts. By simmering the roasted chestnuts in milk, they become nice and soft so that they can blend into a perfectly smooth puree that is the foundation for this ice cream.

Author's Notes

For best results, you will need a thermometer to gauge the temperature of the custard and an ice cream maker to do the churning. The key to achieving homemade ice cream with great texture is to have the custard as cold as possible when it goes into the ice cream maker.

To soften any leftover ice cream after storing it in the freezer, leave ice cream at room temperature until desired consistency or slow defrost in the refrigerator for about 1 hour before serving for perfectly scoopable ice cream.
