Ice Cream, Buttermilk (D, KLP, TNT)
Source: Bon Appetit
Serves: 6

1 cup whipping cream
6 large egg yolks
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup cold buttermilk

Bring whipping cream to simmer in heavy saucepan.

Whisk egg yolks and sugar in a medium bowl to blend. Gradually whisk in hot cream and return to saucepan. Stir over medium heat until custard thickens slightly-about 6 minutes. DO NOT BOIL.

Strain into bowl and stir in 1 cup of cold buttermilk. Refrigerate custard about 2 hours until cold.

Process in ice cream maker. I have a Donvier and found that it took no time to freeze into a very smooth, somewhat tart, custardy ice cream that was perfect with the warm rhubarb and strawberries.

The ice cream can be made well in advance and kept in freezer.
