Cherry Ice Cream Recipe

3/4 cup dried cherries
1/2 cup rum
2 1/2 cups light cream
1/2 cup sugar
4 egg yolks
1/4 teaspoon vanilla

  • Place the cherries in a bowl and cover with rum.
  • Allow to soak for several hours or overnight.
  • Heat the light cream and sugar together until the sugar is dissolved and bubbles begin to formaround edge of the pot.
  • Whisk yolks until creamy. Add 1/2 cup of the warm cream to the egg yolks.
  • Pour the warmed yolks back into the half-and-half and continue to cook, stirring, until the custard mixture coats the back of a spoon.
  • Do not boil the mixture or it will curdle.
  • Stir in the vanilla, allow to cool completely, then chill. Pour into the ice-cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer’s directions.
  • Drain the cherries. When the mixture begins to thicken as it freezes, add the cherries and freeze until ice cream is the proper consistency.
