Raspberry Ice Cream

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. 


  1. Hi!

    I'm working with an award-winning production company and a top-rated national cable network to cast a new docu-series that will explore unique perspectives on parenting.

    I came across your blog and I think it is awesome. Right now we are working on an exciting new project and are looking for parents with great personality. Specifically, we are looking for parents that unschool their children.

    If you know someone who fits the bill please spread the word! If you are interested you should contact Lande at Don't hesitate to be in touch!

  2. Yum! Looks fabulous. I will bring you raspberries anytime if they are going to something as awesome as that! (Okay, I would bring you raspberries even if you wanted to sit around and throw them at each other. Or wait. Maybe not.) :)
