Wicked harvast frozen custard

My friends, Jim and Gloria Zion, of Velvetree Foods have created a first-in-world Pistachio finished Bourbon called Wicked Harvest. It is incredibly delicious and a joy to cook with, adding a subtle flavor of true Kentucky Bourbon along with a delectable pistachio flavor.


2 cups half and half
3 beaten eggs
¾ cup sugar
pinch of salt
2 tsps. Vanilla Extract
2 Tbs. Wicked Harvest Bourbon
1 cup heavy cream whipped
½ cup chopped Pistachio Nuts


Mix eggs sugar and salt in a stainless-steel bowl. Heat half and half in a sauce pan. Place stainless bowl with egg mixture over a sauce pan with boiling water to create a double boiler. Gradually stir in the heated half and half whisking constantly until mixture thickens and coats a metal spoon. NOTE: This should take approximately eight to ten minutes. Do not overcook or you will end up with a curdled product. Remove from heat and cool. After cooling, fold in the whip cream, flavoring and bourbon. NOTE: Optional — add a couple of drops of green food coloring to create a Pistachio green. Pistachios can be added now and incorporated into the custard or used with the glaze (refer to Wicked Bourbon Glaze) to top the custard as a garnish after it is frozen. Pour custard into Soufflé Cups or suitable containers and freeze until firm. Makes approximately six servings.
Chef’s Note: This dessert dish can also be served unfrozen as a custard similar to Panna Cotta.
