Kicked Up Citrus Beet Ice Cream

3 large beets
1 cup orange juice
12 egg yolks
3/4 cup sugar
2 vanilla beans
2 1/2 cups cream
1 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cayenne

Roast beets in 350-degree oven until tender–about 2 hours. Peel and cut into small pieces. Place beets in blender with orange juice and puree until smooth. Split vanilla beans, scrape, and add seeds to the cream and scald. Whisk together egg yolks and sugar and then stir into cream mixture. Stir over low heat until mixture begins to thicken (enough to coat the back of a spoon)–about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients: heavy cream; cinnamon; cayenne. Let ice cream chill in refrigerator. Pour into ice cream maker that has been in freezer and proceed according to manufacturer’s instructions.

There is perceptibly a lot to identify about this. I suppose you made various nice points in features also.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
