Cherry Vanilla Ice Cream

I have been thinking about a dessert for the Eggland's Best Brunch and I decided that homemade ice cream is simply the best.  I made some for the holiday and it was a treat for everyone.  I am about to make another batch.  I love the idea, I can stick it, in the freezer, ignore it completely and remove it for the brunch.

I made my ice cream recipe and added some dark cherries, halved .

You can cut the cream even more and use 1 cup whole milk and two cups cream.  I only keep the one percent milk, in the house.


Cherry Vanilla Ice Cream 

Ingredients :


1/2 cup one percent milk
2 1/2 cups heavy cream
3/4 cup sugar
pinch of salt
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1 - 2 cups halved cherries

Method:
Pour 1 cup of the cream into a 2 quart saucepan.
Add the sugar and salt and stir mixture until the sugar dissolves.
Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the vanilla extract.  Then add the milk and remaining cream.
Chill for 30 minutes and pour into ice cream maker and follow the directions from the manufacturer.
In the last two minutes, add the cherries which will spread throughout the ice cream.

I cooked some berry jelly and put it on top but it hardened rather than stay syrupy.

  3. Looks scrumptious! I'm going to try this with Almond Cream and see how it goes. I have used that in the past and it has worked as a substitute for most recipes ☺ Thanks for sharing! Please feel free to share it in my recipe linky this week.

    2. Chaya...here is the link for the Almond Cream we use. It is readily available in most of our health food stores and it has a very rich, enticing flavor. I also use it to make our ice creams ☺
