Corn Ice-Cream

This is undoubtedly one of the most unique ways to eat corn.

In a large saucepan, add milk, cream and sugar along with some corn and let them boil. In a separate bowl, whisk egg yolks and some more sugar. Add a cup of the hot milk mix to the yolks, stirring constantly. Add the yolk mixture to the saucepan, stirring. Cook this for about minutes or until the mixture thickens. Sieve this mix and keep in the freezer until set. Scoop and serve.
