Chestnut Ice Cream

Ingredients

1 quart milk
7/8 cup heavy cream
1 1/4 cups sugar
8 ounces chestnut puree
1 ounce rum
10 sweet roasted chestnuts or Marron glacé, chopped into bite size pieces

Preparation

1
In a saucepan, bring the milk to a boil. Add the cream. Bring to boil again. (Do not cook after the liquid has reached the boil.
2
In a bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and sugar until the mixture is a very pale lemon yellow, and a ribbon forms when the whisk is lifted from the mixture.
3
Pour the hot milk and cream into the eggs, and mix thoroughly. Add chestnut puree and rum.
4
Return the mixture to the saucepan. Over low heat, stir it with a wooden spoon until it thickens slightly and coats the spoon - about 5 minutes. DO NOT BOIL. (To be certain the mixture is ready: With a finger draw a thin path through the mixture on the surface of the spoon; the mixture is ready when the path will not close up.)
5
Pass through a fine sieve. Refrigerate until cold, then churn with ice cream maker.
6
Stir in the chopped chestnuts when ice cream has completed churning.
