i need some help with mint ice cream...

rdizzle | Nov 15, 2010 06:51 PM

I recently made a cream (not custard) based ice cream and tried to infuse the hot cream with mint leaves before throwing it into the ice cream freezer. i let the leaves steep until the cream (in an ice bath) was about room temp (about 30 minutes). By the end of it all I was very disappointed because it tasted too herby, not fresh and minty like I expected.

What did I do wrong?Would adding creme de menthe near the end of freezing have helped?

Does anyone have any other good mint ice cream recipes?
