2 cups Whole Milk
2 cups Heavy Cream
1 1/2 cups Egg Yolk
1/2 Fresh Vanilla Bean
1 cup Sugar
1 tsp Salt
2 Tbsp White Miso
1/2 Tbsp Tamari Soy
4 ounces Canned Black Beans, reserve liquid from the can
In a small pot bring heavy cream, milk, sugar and salt to a simmer until sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Remove pot from heat. In a separate bowl, break up the yolks with a whisk. Whisking constantly, slowly add about a third of the hot cream into the yolks, then whisk the yolk mixture back into the pot with the cream. Return pot to medium-low heat and add miso, tamari and black beans. Gently cook until mixture thickens and coats the back of a spoon. Puree in a blender until smooth and strain through a chinois or cheese cloth lined strainer.
Cool mixture to room temperature. Cover and chill at least 4 hours or overnight. For churning, follow the instructions of an ice cream machine. Transfer to a container and freeze for at least 1 hour before serving.
