spiced oatmeal ice cream

yesterday i happened to come across a lot of whole milk. i don't drink milk, but i do love ice cream.


2 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup milk (i used whole)

1 cup old fashioned oats (uncooked)
1 tsp cinnamon
a pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
1/8 tsp salt
1/3 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 tsp olive oil
2 tablespoons maple syrup

in a large bowl whisk together the eggs until they are light and fluffy (about 2 minutes). add the sugar in 1/4 cup increments, whisking well after each addition. once the sugar and eggs are well combined, add the milk and cream, mix well, and set aside.

combine the oats, cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar, and salt in the bowl of a food processor. gradually incorporate the maple syrup and olive oil into the mixture while the machine is running. continue to pulse until the mixture just begins to hold clumps.

stir the oat mix into the cream base and allow to chill for 30 minutes in a freezer (when making ice cream, it's important to keep the ingredients as cold as possible. the 30 minutes spent in the freezer will enhance the performance of your ice cream maker). after chilling, freeze the mix in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions (about 25 minutes). at this point your ice cream will be somewhat soft and should be transfered to an airtight container and frozen for an additional 2 hours before serving. enjoy!
