The texture of the ice cream is off. The ground pistachios are not smooth and creamy in consistency, no matter how long you grind it in your food processor. The instructions should have been to grind to a smooth powder in a spice/coffee grinder and then add the milk to it separately to form a paste. Because of the texture of the tiny bits of pistachios throughout the ice cream(along with shaved chocolate), the custard felt as if it had split. I don't believe in throwing away food(especially not the organic, super expensive ingredients I bought), but if I did, I'd throw this away in an instant. Apart from the texture, the ice cream is pretty fatty and sets hard because of it. I think the custard recipe is fine(although could use all milk, and the ice cream texture wouldn't suffer if you're still adding pistachio paste), the idea of chocolate is fine. The pistachios, on the other hand, need to be added chopped coarsely at the very end of ice cream making.
