Creamy & luscious, with great coffee flavor ~ although I did change proportions of several ingredients. Instead of any instant, I used real Turkish coffee, which is ground to the finest grind possible ~ even finer than espresso! The coffee has about 10% cardamom powder added, so it is strongly flavored with it. (Some Turkish coffees have clove added instead, or no spice.) I basically made a Turkish coffee by simmering 3 Tblsp. of fine grinds in only 3/4 cup water with the sugar. The amounts of cream & sugar remained the same, but no more water was added, the milk was increased to 2-1/4 cups, & the yolks reduced to 4. I know! I've changed the original recipe enough & made my own, but it all started with this recipe. Thanks Marilyn Perzik! I highly recommend this unusual ice cream!
