Yuzu (Citron) Ice Cream

Another ice cream hack, but this time with yuzu (citron) instead of matcha (green tea). Here in Indonesia, it is impossible to find fresh yuzu, but luckily concentrated yuzu tea is quite easy to find, at least if you live in big city like Jakarta. And interestingly, the ones that I keep seeing are imported from Korea, not Japan, but it is the same stuff, so don’t worry. It comes in a glass jar, looks like marmalade, and sold under the name of honey citron tea (té de citrón y miel). The jar also has both Korean and Japanese characters of 유자차 (yujacha) and 柚子茶 (yuzucha), in case you are interested to hunt this down to make the recipe. ;)
