Place crushed cardamom pods, orange zest, sugar, corn syrup, milk, and cream in a medium sauce pan. Bring to simmer, then cover, remove from heat, and let steam at room temperature for one hour.
Whisk the egg yolks together until light and lemon-colored. Reheat the milk mixture, slowly add it to the egg yolks, whisking constantly. Return the mixture to the saucepan.
Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and coats the spoon.
Place a large bowl in an ice bath and set a strainer over the top of the bowl. Pour the custard through the strainer into the bowl, pressing on solids to extract most of the liquids. Stir the mixture until cool.
Place the cooled the custard in a sealed container and refrigerate overnight. Right before freezing, stir in the orange extract and blood orange olive oil. Freeze in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturers instructions.
