CHUNKY Custard Ice Cream Base!? Help!!!

kweesee | Jan 1, 2008 04:40 PM

I've made lots of ice cream in the past year and for some reason tonight, my custard base will not thicken and there's tiny these yellow chunks (egg?) in the base. yuck! I finally added 1tbs of cornstarch which made it thick but the gross yellow chunks are still there.

1. what happened?
2. should i still chill it and make the ice cream tomorrow, or will it not turn out right?

one guess i have is maybe i beat the egg yolk and sugar too much?

custard base recipe:
1 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
3 egg yolks
