When awesome friends give you beautiful, glorious raspberries, you make homemade raspberry ice cream.
Raspberry Ice Cream - 4 quart recipe
2 cups milk
1 3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups half and half
1 T. vanilla
4 cups whipping cream
Scald milk until bubbles form around the edges. Remove from heat and add sugar and salt. Stir until dissolved. Stir in half and half, vanilla and whipping cream. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Add raspberries to chilled mixture before starting the freezing process. Process according to your ice cream makers instructions.
Spark smashed the ice to put in the ice cream maker and before he opened the ice bag he said, "It sounds like a winter wonderland in there!"
Oh, yummy goodness. You can put it in the freezer to get harder before eating it but, if you sat around the ice cream maker like vultures waiting for it to shut off, you skip that part and dig in with your spoon.
