Good old cornstarch - ice cream?
Does any one even make good old cornstarch pudding any more? It was certainly a staple of my childhood , but I barely remember making it for my own family.
What brought me back to it was reading Mark Bittman's suggestion that it could easily pinch hit as an ice cream
base -as a substitute for the richer, more traditional egg yolk base.
What a revelation!
It works perfectly. I used the Joy of Cooking recipe for vanilla pudding using 1/2 half and half and 1/2 "skim plus" milk.
Freezing it in these little individual cups was my own idea. Easy portion control.
