Black Sesame Ice Cream


This is the cool gritty luscious dessert that I've always wanted to try.  I surfed the internet for an 'easy to follow' recipe and chanced upon this delectable dessert from 'justonecookbook'.   Mine didn't turn out as smooth as hers, maybe because I didn't grind the roasted black sesame seeds till very, very fine. Nonetheless, it was enjoyed by members of my family and they nodded with approval when I asked them whether it was good or otherwise.


Recipe for Black Sesame Ice Cream  (adapted from 'here')

    Ingredients

    • 2 Tbsp roasted black sesame seeds, roasted

    • 3 Tbsp black sesame paste (homemade)
    • 200 ml heavy cream
    • 1 tsp vanilla
    • a pinch of salt
