Cherry Ice Cream

Now that the weather is getting hotter here in M'sia, we usually will have to drink lots of liquid to quench our thirst.  Or we will think of ways to make some cold dessert or herbal drink to avoid heaty body too.  Are you making any of this?

I came across Nami Of Just One Cookbook just post her Cherry Ice Cream lately and as I still have some cherries in my fridge, and so I thought I make the same Cherry ice cream too.  I think I prefer to make ice cream without the egg yolks in it ~ easy and to avoid what to do with the egg whites later on.

Recipe adapted from Nami of Just One Cookbook

2 cups (500 ml) heavy cream
1 cup (250 ml) whole milk
¾ cup (150 g) granulated sugar
Pinch of salt
1 vanilla bean
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups cherries (when pitted and quartered)

In a medium saucepan, heat 1 cup of the cream, sugar, and salt.

Split the vanilla bean in half lengthwise with knife and scrape the seeds with spoon.

Put both seeds and pod in the pan.

Stir the mixture over medium heat until sugar completely dissolves.

Remove from the heat and add the vanilla extract, the rest of the heavy cream (1 cup) and milk. Mix well.

Chill the mixture in the refrigerator for several hours (or overnight) until completely cold.

Cut cherries into quarters.

Take out the vanilla bean pod before churning. Process the mixture in your ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s

In last 5 minutes add in the cherries. Combine ice cream and cherries well.

Put the ice cream in an airtight container and let it firm by freezing it for several hours.

  Delicious and yummy ice cream.
