Black Sesame Ice Cream

Black Sesame Ice Cream

2 cups half-and-half
1/4 cup + 2 TBSP white sugar
4 egg yolks
1/2 cup + 2 TBSP ground black sesame seeds
1 tsp vanilla


  1. In a pot, mix half-and-half with 1/4 cup sugar. Heat over low heat until bubbly around the edges. Turn off the heat.
  2. In a large bowl, beat yolks and 2 TBSP sugar until smooth and creamy. Add a little of the hot mixture while whisking the eggs. Continue adding hot mixture as you whisk. When everything has been combined, pour back into the pot.
  3. Set it over low heat and continuously stir the custard until thickened and coats the back of a spoon.
  4. Slowly mix in black sesame seeds and vanilla.
  5. Pour into a large bowl over a strainer (to remove clumps) and cover surface with saran wrap. Let it cool overnight in the refrigerator.
  6. The next day follow the directions on the ice cream maker.


  • You can substitute half-and-half with whipping cream
  • You can use whole sesame seeds as well, but they will need to be toasted and then ground
