Making the olive oil ice cream 

  1. Whisk together the egg yolks and sugar. 
  2. Whisk the hot milk into the mixture and transfer to a saucepan; cook over low heat, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens slightly to form a crème anglaise. Do not overheat or the eggs will curdle.
  3. Cool to lukewarm. Whip the cream and fold it into the crème anglaise; add the olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Place in an ice cream maker to freeze.
  4. Serve the tarts with the olive oil ice cream and a few mirabelles.
