I Forgot the Wednesday Paper Recipe

Ooops. I'm having a really bad week, month, lifetime right now. Ever have one of those times when everything is up in the air and everything is going wrong?

That's when it's time to reach for......ICE CREAM.

From the
San Francisco Chronicle, they highlighted an interesting Green Tea Ice Cream.


1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup water
1/2 teaspoon mirin
2 1/2 teaspoons powdered green tea
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 cup heavy cream

Combine the sugar and water in a small saucepan. Place the saucepan over low heat and bring to a simmer, then simmer, stirring, for about 5 minutes.

Add the mirin to the saucepan, stir, and immediately remove from heat.

Dissolve the powdered tea in about 2 tablespoons of the sugar-water from the saucepan, stirring until completely blended. Pour this mixture back into the saucepan with the remaining sugar-water.

Add the milk and cream to the tea mixture, combining well.

Refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.

Transfer the mixture to an electric ice cream maker and churn and chill for about 25-30 minutes, or according to manufacturer's instructions. The texture of the ice cream should be smooth and thick.

You can serve this immediately, or transfer the ice cream to a plastic freezer container and freeze for a firmer texture.
