Are you making this? 
100 g unsalted pistachio kernels
400 ml thin cream
1.5 cups milk
1 stick (approx 7 cms long)
6 egg yolks
1 cup caster sugar
1 drop green liquid food colouring

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



1. Heat a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the pistachio kernels and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until toasted (see microwave tip). Remove from heat and set aside for 5 minutes to cool. Place in the bowl of a food processor and process until finely chopped. Set aside until required.

2. Combine the cream, milk and cinnamon stick in a large saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Remove from heat and set aside for 5 minutes to cool slightly. Discard cinnamon stick.

3. Use a wire balloon whisk to whisk together the egg yolks and sugar in a large heatproof jug until thick and pale. Gradually stir in the warm milk mixture until well combined.

4. Pour mixture into a clean saucepan and place over low heat. Cook, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, for 15 minutes or until custard coats back of the spoon. Remove from heat. Stir in food colouring and pistachio until combined.

5. Pour into a shallow metal container. Cover with foil and place in the freezer for 4 hours or until almost set.

6. Roughly break up the ice-cream with a large metal spoon. Transfer to a large bowl and use an electric beater to beat until smooth. Quickly return mixture to the metal container. Cover with foil and freeze for another 4 hours or until firm. Spoon into bowls and serve immediately.
