Ingredients (for 6 people) :
-150g pecans, roughly choppedMethod: Preheat the oven to 180’C, fan oven 160°C, Gas Mark 4. Place pecans on a tray and cook for 5-8 minutes in the oven until fragrant and a little darker.
-3 tbsp Kerrygold Softer butter
-2 pinches salt
-100ml double cream
-3 egg yolks
-1 tbsp light brown sugar
-5 tbsp maple syrup
Remove from the oven, then add the butter and one pinch of salt and toss until the butter is melted. Set aside until the pecans are completely cool, they will absorb the butter.
Next place the milk and the cream in a saucepan and heat up until the liquid just begins to steam.
Meanwhile whisk the egg yolks and the light brown sugar in a bowl until slightly pale and light in colour.
Pour the hot milk and cream onto the egg yolks, whisking all the time, then transfer back in to the saucepan and cook over a very low heat, stirring constantly until the mixture coats the back of a spoon.
Keep the heat low, otherwise the mixture will scramble. You might need to remove it from the heat briefly from time to time, it should not boil.
Once the mixture coats the back of a spoon, whisk in the maple syrup and salt. Then transfer into a wide bowl to cool it down as quickly as possible, before churning it, either by hand or using an ice cream machine.
When the ice cream is almost set, add in the pecans. Transfer into a freezer container and store, covered, in the freezer for up to 2 months.
