I just made the best ice-cream today, and thought I'd share.

For the ice-cream:
3/4 cup white sugar
2 cups milk
1 cup heavy cream
2 eggs
A pinch of salt
1/4 cup maple syrup (i used the fake cheap kind and it was still great)
A splash of vanilla extract
A splash of brandy

Mix it all together. If you're worried about eating raw eggs, you can cook it custard like and then chill it in the fridge.
If you're using an ice-cream maker, make the ice-cream according to the instructions. If not, pour it into a relatively flat container and stick in the freezer. Take it out every half-hour and mix with a spatula to insert air, making sure to scrape the frozen mixture at the sides. Do that until it's the right texture.

If you want to take the ice-cream to the next level, make candied almonds:
1/2 cup roughly chopped almonds
2 tbs white sugar
1/2 tsp salt (only if you like your caramel a bit salty)
40-50 gr chocolate (I used milk but if you prefer it a bit less sweet use dark)

Toast the almonds on a hot pan for a minute or two. Add the sugar and stir until melted and golden - be careful since it burns very quickly and you don't want it to turn bitter. Quickly spread over baking paper or another surface of your choice - it hardens very fast. Melt the chocolate and spread it over the almonds. Stick it in the fridge for 20 minutes until the chocolate is hard, then chop it to the size you prefer. Add the almonds to the ice-cream towards the end of the freezing process.

Enjoy! (best eaten within a week of making but I doubt you'll have that problem).

If any of you makes it, I'd appreciate your input!
