Just picked up a cuisinart ice cream machine and want my first attempt to be a cherry vanilla
i found this recipe by david lebovitz ( on bottom)
My concerns are these.. i noticed there is no egg in this... can anyone tell me the difference of ice cream with eggs and none?
do you think the cherry flavor will be carried out enough?
it just seems like a vanilla ice cream with cherries in it.. since the recipe doesnt say to put in heat i assume i just add it in- in the last 5 minutes?
would you marry a more cherry flavor into the vanilla?
would you alter this a bit?
thanks in advance
Ingredients (makes 1 quart)
3 cups (750 mil) heavy cream, or 2 cups (500 mil) heavy cream + 1 cup (250 mil) whole milk
3/4 cup (150 grams) granulated sugar
pinch of salt
1 vanilla bean, split in half lengthwise
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups coarsely chopped fresh cherries (stones removed)
1. In the medium sauce pan, pour 1 cup (250 mil) of the cream and add the sugar and salt. Scrape the vanilla bean seeds into the pan and add the pod. Stir the mixture over medium heat, until the sugar dissolves.
2. Remove from the heat and add the vanilla extra and the rest of the cream or cream + milk.
3. Chill the mixture thoroughly in a covered plastic container. Remove the vanilla bean before churning, just rinse it and reserve for another use. Follow the manufacturers directions for your ice cream freezer.
