what sea salt ice cream is? Roxas, Axel, and Xion always sit in the clock tower in the twiligh town after they're finished they're mission, and eat sea salt ice cream.
SALT but SWEET. SWEET but SALT.
MAKE: 4-6 pops, or a medium-sized Tupperware bowl-full
*wire whisk or fork
*meduium sized saucepan
*2 medium sized bowls
*1 cup measure
*1 teaspoon measure
*1 tablespoon measure (may or may not be needed)
*ice-pop molds (bowl method further explained in the recipe)
*1 cup milk
*1 cup sugar
*1 cup heavy whipping cream (or, if you don't have heavy whipping cream, make some by combining 1 cup of milk and 1 tablespoon of flour in a small saucepan until warm)
*1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract
*1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
*10+ drops of blue food coloring (15 usually gets you the traditional Kingdom Hearts color, but you can add more or less to your liking. the mixture is yellow enough to make up for the green once the blue is mixed in)
1.) heat the milk in the saucepan over medium heat, until warmish hot, while constantly stirring with the wooden spoon (don't use a metal spoon it will both scratch your pot and make the milk burn easier). the milk should be right before boiling, but don't let it boil. don't heat too fast or the milk will curdle. whole milk workd best and makes the creamiest and most delicious ice cream, however any milk will do.
2.) seperate the eggs into the two bowls, and whisk the whites well for a few minutes; until they're considerably frothy at the top. don't worry about getting it too stiff, it's the same either way. a wire whisk works best but a fork can also work.
3.) add the cup of sugar in with the egg yolks and whisk well until thick. don't worry if you've got a clumpy, yellow sugay mixture, just add a teeny tiny amount of the egg whites at a time, and mix, until you've got a really thick, chunky slushy type mixture.
4.) keep checking your milk to make sure it doesn't overheat. if it's ready before you're done with the previous steps, lower the flame to the lowest setting, and keep stirring.
5.) once you're finished, add the egg and sugar mixture into the warm milk and heat over medium heat until thickened. stir constantly, and DON'T LET IT BOIL. don't worry if it's not too thick; just get it as thick as you can without overheating it. if you want a slightly ice cream, add more sugar to your liking at this step.
6.) remove the saucepan from the heat, and pour your custard- like mixture into the egg whites. mix well, and add the sea salt. (it should have a nice and subtle salty-sweet ratio, but you add salt to your taste. but be careful; the salt kicks in a bit more once it's freezing, so don't add too much.
7.) place your mixture in the fridge to cool, and wait about 10-15 minutes or so.
8.) once your mixture has cooled to room temperature or below, take it out of the fridge and add the heavy whipping cream (or your milk and fluor substitute) and vanilla. people who want a slightly richer ice cream may want to add a little more vanilla than usual, but this is usually just enough to not overpower the ice cream. like the salt, it kicks in a bit more once it's freezing, so be careful.
9.) add the food coloring. to get traditional Kingdom Hearts color, I used about 15 drops of blue.
method A: pretty simple, just pour your mixture into the ice pop molds and place the molds in your frezer. when they're fully frozen you will have ice cold sea salt ice cream pops ready to be enjoyed.
method B: if you don't have ice-pop molds, just go ahead and place the bowl wiht your micture in it in the freezer (don't worry; it won't get frostbite). this basically creates a solid mass of ice cream, but it still taste good and you can scape it out and put it in another bowl to be eaten all the same.
okay, this is one of many version. hope it helped.
