Smooth and creamy minus the use of sugar, this frozen dessert is perfectly served with fresh fruits like berries. Try it with richberry!
6 large egg yolks
1 pinch salt
2/3 cup dry Marsala wine
1 cup cold heavy cream
Whisk egg yolks, salt, and Marsala wine together in a metal mixing bowl.
Set the bowl over a medium-low heat, or over a double boiler. Hold the bowl with one hand using a towel or pot-holder, while whisking constantly with the other. Continue cooking until the mixture is very thick and reaches the ribbon stage, about 10 minutes.
Remove custard from heat and allow to cool completely, preferably over an ice bath, whisking occasionally, 20 to 30 minutes.
Pour cold heavy cream into another bowl and whisk until soft peaks form. Transfer into the cooled custard and gently fold everything together until just barely combined; do not overmix.
Transfer into an airtight container, cover the top with plastic wrap, and seal. Place in a freezer until firm, at least 4 hours, or up to overnight.
Consume Miracle Berry:
Just before digging in, chew 1 or more freeze-dried miracle berry (this can also be done during the preparation of ingredients). Ensure to remove pits to avoid a bitter taste.
The active ingredient miraculin from miracle berry will turn sour foods such as lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit, non-fat yoghurt and other citrus food to taste sweet without adding sugar. We recommend two halves or 2 servings for maximum effectiveness. Make sure to follow instructions from the back of the packaging.
Note: Sometimes you may need to add at least 5-7% of the total quantity of sugar required, this is due to the chemistry of the food, however, you may skip this as you wish. The goal is to totally reduce sugar and yet experience the same taste.
