Red Salak Ice Cream Recipe

Ingredients with Measurements:
- 1 cup of red salak fruit, peeled and chopped
- 1 cup of heavy cream
- 1 cup of whole milk
- 3/4 cup of granulated sugar
- 4 egg yolks
- 1 tsp of vanilla extract
- Pinch of salt

Special equipment needed:
- Ice cream maker

Step-by-step instructions:

1. In a medium saucepan, combine the heavy cream, whole milk, and red salak fruit. Heat the mixture over medium heat until it comes to a simmer.

2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, sugar, vanilla extract, and salt until the mixture is pale and thick.

3. Slowly pour the hot cream mixture into the egg mixture, whisking constantly to prevent the eggs from curdling.

4. Pour the mixture back into the saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and coats the back of a spoon.

5. Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl and let it cool to room temperature.

6. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.

7. Once the mixture is chilled, pour it into an ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer's instructions.

8. Transfer the ice cream to a freezer-safe container and freeze for at least 2 hours or until firm.
