You can celebrate the day, beating the heat, with lots of coffee ice creams. Here's an easy recipe for you ..
5 egg yolks
Condensed milk – 1 large can
Sugar – ¾ cup
Whole Coffee Bean – 1 1/2 cups
Vanilla Extract -- ¼ teaspoon full
Finely Ground Coffee -- ¼ teaspoon full.
A pinch of Salt
Mix thoroughly the milk, sugar, whole coffee beans, salt, and 1/2 cup of the cream in a medium saucepan and heat it until it is quite warm and steamy .... don't boil. Once the mixture is warm, remove from the heat, cover it and let steep at room temperature for an hour.
Now pour the remaining 1 cup of cream into a medium size bowl, set on ice over a larger bowl. Set a mesh strainer on top of the bowls and keep aside.
Put the milk and coffee mixture to heat again on medium heat, until again hot and steamy ... don't boil. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg yolks together and pour the heated milk and coffee mixture into the egg yolks slowly, whisking it constantly. Scrape the warmed egg yolks back into the saucepan.
Stir the mixture constantly for 10 minutes over medium heat with a heatproof, flat-bottomed spatula, scraping the bottom as you stir, until the mixture thickens and coats the spatula.
Pour the custard through the strainer and stir it into the cream. Press on the coffee beans in the strainer to extract as much of the coffee flavor as possible and discard the beans then. Mix in the vanilla and finely ground coffee, and stir it till it cools down.
Chill the mixture thoroughly in the refrigerator, then freeze it.
