- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup heavy cream
- 1 cup half and half
- 4 egg yolks, beaten
- 1/3 cup Bertolli Mild Taste Olive Oil
- 1/4 - 1/2 Cup chopped mixed nuts with sea salt
- Mint sprig garnish
- Ice optional * this is used for an ice bath to cool the mixture before refrigerating.
The original recipe called for extra virgin olive oil. I could not find a citrus flavor in the extra virgin and decided on the brand I bought because the label mentioned it had a lighter flavor than extra virgin olive oil. It would be fun to experiment with all the wonderful flavors of the extra virgin olive oils.
