Recipe Step by Step



1605 g Milk
65 g Non-fat dry milk
95 g Caster sugar
75 g Invert sugar
150 g Glucose powder
50 g Whipping cream
10 g Ice cream stabilizer
5 g Fleur de sel
450 g CARAMÉLIA 36%
2505 g Total weight

Heat the milk in a saucepan to 75°F (25°C) then add the non-fat dry milk.
Once it is at 85°F (30°C), add the salt, three quarters of the caster sugar, the glucose powder, and the invert sugar. At 95°F (35°C), add the whipping cream. At 115°F (45°C), add the rest of the caster sugar along with the stabilizer. Next, make an emulsion by gradually combining the warm liquid with the melted couverture.
Mix vigorously in a stand mixer. Pasteurize at 185°F (85°C) then quickly cool the mixture to 40°F (4°C).
Leave the mixture to sit for at least 12 hours at 40°F (4°C). Churn and store at 0°F (-18°C).
