Peanut Butter and Pickle Ice Cream
Line a plate with parchment or wax paper and spread diced pickles across it in a single layer. Freeze until solid, at least one hour.
In a medium saucepan, combine cream, milk, salt, sugar and egg yolks. Whisk to blend. Place over medium-low heat and whisk continuously, occasionally scraping the bottom of the pan with a rubber spatula, until the mixture is thick enough to coat the back of the spatula, about 10 to 12 minutes.
Pour mixture through a fine mesh strainer into a mixing bowl. Add vanilla and peanut butter, whisking until smooth. Cool custard by placing the bottom of the bowl into a bowl of ice water and stirring until chilled, about 20 minutes, or by refrigerating for 2 to 24 hours.
Freeze the chilled custard in an ice cream machine according to manufacturer’s instructions. Just before ice cream is fully set and still churning, add diced frozen pickles. Transfer to a bowl, cover and freeze until firm.
