This one is a good one, the combination of vanilla and orange, so good. When you eat it, the orange part tastes like your eating orange sherbet. It actually tastes so good I plan on making this again and again.
If you added all the cream at the beginning, forgetting to leave 1/2 cup on the side for the vanilla component. Just add 2 cups of the milk mixture into the vanilla extract bowl and that will fix that issue.
If you have two ice cream machines, both flavours can be churned together and you can even add them to the same freezer safe container, vanilla on one side and orange on the other, so that when you scoop it, a little of each flavour goes in each scoop. Next time I make it, I'll try that.
I did not use orange extract, but I did add orange food colouring to enhance the orange colour.
1 cup full cream milk
3/4 cup caster sugar
2 cups thickened cream, divided
pinch of salt
5 egg yolks
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Zest of 1 orange
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 teaspoon orange extract, optional
Orange food colouring, optional
To a large saucepan add milk, sugar, 1 and 1/2 cups thickened cream and salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, over medium-low heat until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is hot, but not boiling.
In a small bowl, whisk yolks until pale in colour, about 1-2 minutes with hand mixer. Continue whisking while slowly drizzling the hot milk mixture into the bowl. Pour the egg mixture into the saucepan. Continue cooking over medium-low heat until the mixture coats the back of a spoon.
Add remaining 1/2 cup cream and vanilla to one medium sized bowl. (If you put all the cream in at the beginning, don't panic, read my notes above on how I fixed that). Add orange zest, orange juice and orange extract (if using) to a second medium sized bowl.
Pour 1 and 1/2 cups of the milk mixture into each bowl, containing cream and orange juice. Allow to cool slightly, stirring occasionally. Cover with cling film and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
When the creams have chilled sufficiently, remove one flavour and place in an ice cream machine and churn according to manufacturer's instructions. Place in a freezer safe container and freeze until frozen.
Re-freeze you ice cream machine bowl. Once frozen, take out your remaining flavour and place in an ice cream machine and churn according to manufacturer's instructions. Place in a freezer safe container and freeze until frozen.
Scoop out both flavours into a bowl or cone.
