What the Beck???

Sur la Table Class
"Summer Sweets: Ice Cream & Sorbet"
Part A:  Buttered Popcorn Ice Cream 
with Salted Caramel Sauce

The first step in making this ice cream was to 
toss the popcorn with the melted butter and salt. 
Then this mixture was heated with the milk, cream, sugar, 
and salt. The whole mixture was strained. The school had 
already done this step due to the time constraints of the class. 
This mixture is in the large container at the top of the tray. 

 We put this initial mixture in a saucepan

We then added the milk cream, sugar, and 
salt to the popcorn strained mixture.

 We heated it until it began to simmer, 
and then we set it aside.

 We tempered the egg yolks by slowly 
adding in some of the hot liquid.
Then we mixed all of the mixture together.

 We cooked it until it reached 170 degrees and was thickened.

Once again, we strained the mixture.
I bought this fabulous strainer.
It is double meshed and really a great one.

 The last thing to do was to add in the vanilla bean paste.
Remember, this was a favorite find of mine.
I vow to never use regular vanilla ever again!!!!

The final step was to mix, and then 
transfer to the ice cream maker.

Way below is a picture after the sauce was added.

Salted Caramel Sauce

 Here are the ingredients for the sauce.
I love that they have pre-measured them for us.

We began by mixing the water and
 sugar into a medium saucepan.

 We poured the cream into a small pan and heated it until it 
boiled, and then we took it off and set it aside.

 We went back to the sugar/water mixture and stirred it for 
what seemed like forever until it was clear. 

 Now, we raised the heat until it boiled really
 hard, but only stirred now and then.

 We cooked the mixture until it turned dark brown.

 Now, it is ready to add the cream mixture into the pan.

 The burner is turned off and in went the 
cream mixture and the vanilla, butter, and salt.

There were 16 people in the class (four per group)
and only four burners,
so we all gathered 'round the stove'

 Yeah!!! it was done!!

We added a few popcorn kernels on 
the top. A fun time was had by all.

Take a class at Sur la Table if you have a 
couple of hours. They have classes every
day of the week (even at night).
