By Sharon Fox
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 1/2 cups whole milk
3 large eggs
1 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2/3 cup frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
4 teaspoons grated orange zest
Whisk the cornstarch and 1/2 cup milk in a small bowl until smooth. Whisk the eggs, sugar and salt in a medium saucepan; whisk in the cornstarch mixture and the remaining 1 cup milk until smooth.
Cook the mixture over low heat, stirring, until thick enough to coat a spoon, 8 to 10 minutes (do not boil). Pour through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl, then set in refrigerator to chill. Add the cream and stir to combine. Stir in the vanilla, orange juice concentrate and orange zest. Cover and chill until cold.
Freeze the custard in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's directions. Scrape into a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip and pipe into cups for that "custard shop" soft serve look, or just dip into bowls! Freeze for a harder ice cream.
