    • 475ml double cream, divided
    • 170g dark brown soft sugar, divided

    1. In a bowl, mix pumpkin puree, vanilla extract and vanilla seeds.
    2. In a small pot, mix 3/4 of the cream and 1/2 the sugar and bring just to a simmer.
    3. In another bowl, mix egg yolks, cinnamon, ginger, salt, nutmeg, remaining cream and remaining sugar until the sugar dissolves.
    4. Remove cream from heat and gradually pour a little into the egg mixture.
    5. Place entire egg mixture carefully into a double boiler and simmer until mixture starts to thicken and no longer will drip from a spoon.
    6. Pass everything through a fine sieve into a bowl and place bowl into a larger bowl filled with ice water. Cool while stirring constantly.
    7. Stir in pumpkin and mix everything well. Cover with cling film placed directly onto the mixture. This will prevent a skin from forming.
    8. Refrigerate for at least a few hours or for a whole day.
    9. Pour mixture into the ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer's instructions. Pour into freezer container and freeze for at least 3 hours.

    This stuff is delicious!! I typically don’t care for pumpkin spice anything but this was really delicious. I even added a small scoop to my coffee and loved it.  -  21 Oct 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
