Sweet Corn Ice Cream
Using an immersion blender, puree the corn. Return the cobs to the pot to infuse for approximately one hour.
Bring the mixture back to the heat and allow it to come to a scald. Turn off the heat. In a small bowl whisk the yolks with the remaining sugar. Slowly add 1 cup of the corn mixture to the yolks whisking constantly . Add the yolk mixture to the saucepot whisking. Cook over medium low heat , stirring continuously with a heatproof rubber spatula until the mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon.
Pass the custard through a fine sieve, pressing down on the solids; discard solids. Cool custard in an ice bath, then cover and chill at least 4 hours. Freeze in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturers instructions.
