That’s right, mayonnaise ice cream. Don’t knock it ‘till you’ve tried it, folks. This simple recipe produces an exceptional ice cream boasting a uniquely delicious flavor, as well as a rich and luscious mouthfeel. In fact, our test kitchen team described this mayo ice cream as a delightful balance of salty, tangy, sweet, and supple. 

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine cream, milk, sugar, and salt in a saucepan over medium. Bring to a boil, and cook, stirring often, until sugar is dissolved, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat.

Step 2

Whisk together egg yolks in a medium bowl. Gradually whisk about one-fourth of hot cream mixture into yolks, whisking constantly. Gradually whisk yolk mixture into remaining cream mixture in saucepan. Cook over medium-low, stirring often, until mixture coats a spoon and a thermometer registers 170°F.

Step 3

Remove mixture from heat, and pour through a fine wire-mesh strainer into a bowl. Cover and refrigerate until well chilled, about 4 hours.

Step 4

Uncover, and whisk in mayonnaise until smooth. Pour mixture into an ice cream maker; freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions. Transfer to a freezer-safe container; cover and freeze until firm, at least 2 hours.
