Yuzu Ice Cream 柚子アイスクリーム

Yuzu Ice Cream | Easy Japanese Recipes at JustOneCookbook.com

Yuzu (柚子), a small yellow or green citrus fruit, has become popular in the United States for the past decade as a lot of chefs started to use it in their cuisines.  In Japan yuzu has been around for centuries and one of my favorite yuzu flavored food is creamy Yuzu Ice Cream.

Yuzu Ice Cream | Easy Japanese Recipes at JustOneCookbook.com

Yuzu is originally from China, but it’s mostly used in Japanese and Korean cuisines.  Yuzu’s flavor is tart but has amazing aroma; therefore, it is rarely eaten as a fruit and aromatic zest and juice are only used just like how we use lemon for recipes.

I know fresh yuzu is very hard to find outside of Japan and Korea so I thought of using other yuzu products.  I like to use bottled yuzu juice for my cooking, but this is also not easy to find if you don’t have a Japanese grocery store nearby.  My third option was Korean Yuzu Tea (Yuja Cha, Citron Tea).  You can find this product in most Korean and Asian/Japanese grocery stores.  Although it is called “yuzu tea”, it’s more like yuzu marmalade.  The marmalade is typically made from honey and yuzu fruit.  It also includes yuzu zest so it works perfectly for yuzu ice cream!

The ice cream recipe is very easy and the custard is pretty similar to other ice cream recipes I have.  The resulting ice cream has the perfect balance of sweet and refreshing citrus flavor.  I hope you give it a try especially if you love yuzu!

Yuzu Ice Cream

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Yield: Makes 1 quart (liter)

Yuzu Ice Cream

Ingredients:

  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 3/4 (156g) cup sugar
  • 2 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 4 Tbsp. Yuzu Tea (Yuzu Cha, Yujacha, Citron Tea) and more for garnish
  • Pinch of salt

Instructions:

  1. In a mixing bowl, beat the egg yolks and sugar at medium-high speed until fluffy (it’ll take about 2-3 minutes).
  2. In a medium saucepan, bring the milk to a simmer (do NOT let the milk boil).
  3. SLOWLY add the warm milk into the egg mixture whisking constantly at the lowest speed (pour in spoonful by spoonful at the beginning). Once the mixture gets warmed up, slowly pour the rest of milk and mix all together.
  4. Transfer the custard back into the saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly with a silicon spatula, until thick enough to coat the back of the spatula, about 4-5 minutes or so. NEVER let the custard boil because your custard will turn into scrambled eggs.
  5. Pour the heavy cream into a medium size glass bowl, set on ice over a larger bowl. Set a mesh strainer on top of the ice bathed heavy cream bowl and pour the custard into the heavy cream.
  6. Whisk in Yuzu Tea and salt. Stir until cool over the ice bath and chill the custard thoroughly in the refrigerator.
  7. Pour the custard into ice cream maker and process the mixture in the ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions (usually about 25 minutes). Transfer the ice cream to an airtight container and freeze until firm.
  8. Serve yuzu ice cream and garnish with yuzu tea.

      Yuzu tea is like marmalade texture, and very sweet. If you use fresh yuzu, make sure to add some honey to sweeten. :) I’m so jealous of your uncle’s yuzu tree!

    Oh Nami! How you reminded me of yuzu!! The very first time I had yuzu drink was on a Japan Airline flight and instantly fell in love with the flavor. It was my drink of choice for the many times I took that Japan Airline flight from Tokyo to Singapore. Never tasted yuzu flavored ice cream but I can tell how divine it must taste.

    Interesting that yuzu tea looks more like jam! Is it from China? I’ve been trying to find yuzu at Japanese stores near here but cannot find it. Now that I know it’s from China, perhaps I should look for the Chinese name instead. This seems so refreshing.

    Nice!!! I like this ice cream already. Last Christmas I bought a bottle of Swedish Christmas wine called “glögg” that was flavored with Yuzu (it was the flavor of the year) and it was the first time I heard about this fruit. So I searched info on the Internet and I learned a lot about it. Nice to see another way to use this fruit.
    Really nice post!

    Nami, I think this is the most genius recipe I’ve seen you post on your site!!! I absolutely LOVE yuzu, and I’m always so sad I can’t find fresh yuzu (let alone yuzu-flavored anything) outside of Japan/Korea, other than yuzu-cha. I have thought about trying to maybe use yuzu-cha as jam before (even though it’s kind of too sweet/thick for that) but I had never thought about cooking with it, and definitely would never have thought of adding it to ice cream! I love this idea! And I always have a jar of yuzu-cha in my fridge (even though I mostly drink it in the winter months) so this is the perfect summer use for it. :) I wish I weren’t about to travel out of town for a week… I want to make this as soon as I get back to my own kitchen!

    • Nami August 25, 2013, 11:23 pm

      Allison, you made me so happy! Thank you! Once you’re hooked on yuzu, you won’t forget the aroma and flavor. I’m so thankful for Korean yuzu tea (yujacha/citron tea)… I drink it all the time but for a long time I didn’t even realize that I could make yuzu ice cream with it. When I made yuzu sour (alcohol drink) for the blog, I realized I could use it for a lot of recipes. :D I hope you enjoy this recipe! Thanks for your kind comment!

    Hi Nami! I am very curious about yuzu because I have never seen a fresh one. It looks like a lot of the citrus fruit that I know and I wonder what sets it apart. I have seen that yuzu tea in the Oriental shops and am very tempted to give this recipe a go.

I wish I could find them here or at least the yuzu tea (we don’t have Korean shops, only some Korean products at different Asian shops). Your ice-cream must be extraordinary.

    My friends and I enjoy this tea when we are ill. Today is Sumo Sunday – and we always get together to watch the matches over some delicious food. I made this ice cream for today – but may not be sharing it due to the typhoon. I guess I’ll have to console myself with a dish of ice cream! (I was going to compliment it with the Yuzu chuhai.)

      Hi Lydia! I drink this tea when I’m ill or have throat ache. :D But that made me so addicted that it’s my night time drink sometimes…while blogging. I hope you enjoyed this ice cream! :) I want to join your Sumo Sunday – sounds fun with delicious food!

        I live in South Carolina and I have three Yuzu trees in my yard. Maybe 40-50 fruit on them now and they are turning yellow. If anyone wants some, I can send a few by mail or ship them if someone wants to help with the shipping cost. I hate to waste these, but no one around here knows what they are. I make vinaigrette, marmalade, and Yuzu cakes but I also have Ichang Lemons and tangerines more than I can possibly use.

          Hi Steve! Yuzu cake! That sounds so delicious! It’s wonderful that you get yuzu in your yard and thank you so much for your kind offer, too! I know who to contact when I need fresh yuzu. :)
