Chocolate Zinfandel Ice Cream
If you like wine and dark chocolate, then this recipe is a must to make!
8 Egg yolks
12 oz Sugar
16 oz Milk
4 oz Cocoa
4 oz Semisweet chocolate bar pieces
16 oz Heavy cream
1 Tbsp Vanilla extract
4 oz. Red Zinfandel wine
1 oz Balsamic vinegar
Mix thoroughly the egg yolks, sugar and milk in a double boiler. As the mixture is being heated, add in the cocoa and chocolate-bar pieces to create a smooth, creamy paste. Continue heating but do not bring to a boil. When a film forms over the back of your spoon, remove from heat and place the pot into a larger pot filled with cold water to cool. Add in heavy cream and place in refrigerator until cold (at least 2 hours). Then stir in vanilla extract and transfer to an ice cream maker. Freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions. At the end of the batch, add the Red Zinfandel wine and Balsamic vinegar, and continue freezing for two more minutes. Turn off the refrigeration and extrude the finished product. Yield: 1½-2 quarts of ice cream
