    Parmigiano-Reggiano Ice Cream

    ingredients

    1 cup heavy cream

    2 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced in half lengthwise

    1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

    2 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano*

    directions

    1. Bring cream, garlic, and nutmeg to a boil in a heavy saucepan over medium-high heat, watching constantly. Remove garlic from the cream. Add cheese, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring constantly, until all the cheese is incorporated.
