Kaffir Lime Gelato

Ingredients

2 cups milk
1 cup heavy cream
34 cup sugar
1 tbsp. lime zest
14 tsp. salt
6 egg yolks
4 Kaffir lime leaves, very thinly sliced, plus more for garnish

Instructions

Whisk milk, cream, sugar, lime zest, salt, and yolks in a 4-quart saucepan. Stir in Kaffir lime leaves and cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate 1 hour. Set pan over medium heat; cook, stirring, until sugar is dissolved and mixture comes to a simmer, 20-25 minutes. Remove from heat and pour through a fine strainer; cover with plastic wrap, pressing it against the surface of the custard. Chill custard completely.
Pour custard into an ice cream maker and process according to manufacturer’s instructions until churned and thick. Transfer to an airtight storage container; freeze until set, at least 4 hours. Serve garnished with thinly sliced kaffir lime leaves, if you like.
