Ingredients

10 sprigs fresh mint

300ml double cream

300ml whole milk

70g caster sugar

6 large egg yolks

2-4 drops green food colouring

60ml créme de menthe

Grated chocolate, to serve

Method

1
Half-fill a bowl with iced water, then put a smaller bowl in the centre of the water. Put in the fridge.
2
Tear the mint sprigs. Put in a pan with the cream and milk. Bring to the boil, then remove from the heat. Leave for 20 minutes to cool.
3
Whisk the sugar and egg yolks together in a bowl until fluffy. Pour the cream mixture in through a sieve. Whisk until combined.
4
Pour the mixture into a pan. Stir in 2-4 drops of the green food colouring, to get your desired shade.
5
With a heatproof spatula, stir constantly over a medium heat until the mixture is thick enough to coat the spatula.
6
Remove the stacked bowls from the fridge. Pour the cream mixture through a sieve into the smaller bowl and stir until cool. Add the liqueur and whisk.
7
Churn the mixture in an ice-cream maker until almost set, then transfer to a freezerproof container.
8
If you don't have an ice cream maker, put the mixture in a freezerproof container, then put in the freezer. Remove and stir every 20 minutes, until set. It will keep for 1 month.
9
Serve with grated chocolate.
