Salted Jaggery Ice Cream

This ice cream gets its sweetness from caramelized jaggery and is similar in flavor to salted caramel. Jaggery is an unrefined sugar made from evaporating cane juice or a palm tree sap which is cooked into a concentrated syrup. Darker in color than cane sugar, jaggery has a more pronounced sent and flavor, reminiscent toffee and butterscotch. This homemade ice cream strikes the perfect balance of salty and sweet.

  1. To a medium sized pot add the jaggery and water.  Heat the pot to medium and swirl frequently until the jaggery is completely dissolved and sauce begins to thicken. The mixture will bubble and deepen in color. Turn off the heat, add the sea salt, and swirl until incorporated.
  2. Add the heavy whipping cream and whole milk. Simmer until the caramel has melted into the milk and the mixture is smooth. Set aside and let cool.
  3. In a separate bowl whisk the egg yolks until smooth. Whisking constantly, slowly stream in a ladle of the caramel milk mixture into the eggs. Add ladle by ladle until 1/3 of the mixture has tempered the eggs. Add the tempered eggs to the remaining caramel milk mixture. 
  4. Return the pot back to the stove over medium-low heat and cook until the mixture reaches 170 degrees or is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Immediately remove from the heat.
  5. Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve and refrigerate for a few hours.
  6. Churn the chilled mixture in an ice cream machine according to machine directions. Remove from ice cream machine once it has reached soft serve texture and transfer to a freezer safe tupperware. Freeze for an additional 2-3 hours. Serve with extra flaky salt and toppings of choice.
