Homemade Chocolate Orange Ice Cream

As many of you know, combining orange and chocolate is high on my list of favorite flavor combinations.  (Click HERE to view other Chocolate Orange recipes.)
Today I am sharing with you an ice cream recipe that I created using this favorite flavor combination:
Printable Recipe

1 cup sugar
1/3 cup corn starch
2 cups milk
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 tablespoon freshly grated orange rind
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 egg yolks
dash of sea salt
juice of half an orange (freshly squeezed)

In a large mixing bowl combine the egg yolks & half of the sugar (1/2 cup sugar) - whisk together until the sugar is combined & the yolks are a little frothy - set aside until later. 
In a saucepan combine the other half of the sugar (1/2 cup sugar), dash of salt and the corn starch.  Stir until mixed.  Now add the milk, whipping cream,vanilla extract & orange rind.  Stir gently with a whisk making sure that there are no sugar/starch clumps.   Place this full saucepan on medium heat and stir gently all the time while cooking.  Continue cooking until this mixture starts to thicken - remove from heat.

It is time to temper the egg yolk mixture.  Pour about 1/3 of the hot milk/cream mixture into the egg yolk/sugar mixture and whisk when adding the hot mixture (see picture below).

Your eggs have now been tempered.  Now add the tempered egg mixture into the remaining hot milk/cream mixture (stirring all the time) (see picture below).  Place back on medium/low heat and cook (stirring all the time) for about 2 to 3 minutes.  Remove the pan from the heat.

Allow the hot custard to rest for about 5 minutes.  Then strain the custard (this will get rid of any clumps that might not have been whisked smooth.  This will also get rid of the orange rind chunks.  No worries - all the delicious flavor from the rind has been extracted into the custard) (see picture below).

Gently whisk the orange juice into the strained custard (see picture below) (stir until combined).

Chill the custard in the fridge for at least 2 hours.

Process the chilled custard in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions (see both pictures above - before & after processing)
