Lemon Curd Ice Cream
- 3 egg yolks
- 55 g caster sugar
- 300 ml (full-fat) milk
- 200 g creme fraiche

- Slowly heat the milk in a saucepan, bringing it to the boil. Use a separate mixing bowl to beat the yolks and sugar together and while still beating, add the milk from the pan.
- Return to the heat, keep stirring until the mixture forms a film over the back of the spoon. Remove from the heat and allow to cool. Do not allow the mixture to boil or it will separate. Chill in the refrigerator.
