I got one of those new ice cream makers for my birthday! I got to try it out yesterday! Wondering what flavor I made? Guinness Stout! Now before you say anything, the flavor of the Guinness with the flavor of the Vanilla and molasses is excellent! I recommend it to anyone who enjoys Guinness and to anyone who likes a little culinary adventure! It was a great ending to the smoke beef short ribs and a batch of my "Frijoles Diablo"! Guinness ice cream Makes 1 quart 1/2vanilla bean, split lengthwise 1cup whole milk 1cup heavy cream 2/3cup Guinness stout 2tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons molasses 4egg yolks 1/3cup sugar 1/2teaspoon vanilla extract 1. In a medium saucepan, scrape in the vanilla bean seeds. Add the pod, milk, and cream. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Turn off the heat, cover the pan, and let the flavors infuse for 30 minutes. 2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over medium-high heat, whisk together the stout and molasses. Bring to a boil and turn off heat. 3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the yolks, sugar, and vanilla extract. Whisk in a few tablespoons of the hot cream mixture, then slowly whisk in another 1/4 cup of the cream. Add the remaining cream in a steady stream, whisking constantly. Pour the mixture back into the saucepan. 4. Stir the beer mixture into the cream mixture. Cook the custard over medium heat, stirring often with a wooden spoon, for 6 to 8 minutes or until the custard thickens enough to coat the back of the spoon. 5. Strain the mixture into a bowl and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight. Process the custard in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions. I used a tablespoon of vanilla instead of the Bean!
