Ice cream

1 quart vanilla ice cream or frozen vanilla yogurt, slightly softened

1 1/2 teaspoons ground nutmeg

 

  Pudding:

1/4 cup yellow cornmeal

1/4 teaspoon salt

3 cups whole milk

2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) unsalted butter

 

2 large eggs

1/2 cup mild-flavored (light) molasses

2 tablespoons (packed) golden brown sugar

2 tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoon ground ginger

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

For ice cream:

Stir ice cream and nutmeg in medium bowl to blend. Cover with foil and

Preheat oven to 300°F. Butter 8x8x2-inch glass baking dish. Combine cornmeal

and salt in heavy medium saucepan. Gradually whisk in 21/2 cups milk. Whisk

over medium heat until mixture boils. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer

until mixture is thick and creamy, stirring often, about 10 minutes. Whisk in

butter. Remove from heat.

 

Whisk eggs, molasses, brown sugar, sugar, ground ginger and cinnamon in large

bowl. Gradually whisk in hot cornmeal mixture. Stir in raisins. Pour pudding into

prepared baking dish. Pour remaining 1/2 cup milk over pudding (do not mix

into pudding). Place pudding dish in large roasting pan. Pour enough hot water

into roasting pan to come halfway up sides of pudding dish.

 

Bake pudding until just set, about 1 hour 30 minutes. Remove pudding from

roasting pan. Cool until lukewarm, about 20 minutes. (Can be made 8 hours

ahead. Cool; cover with plastic and let stand at room temperature. Rewarm

    2 oz Unsweetened chocolate
    1 c Sugar
    1/3 c Unsweetened cocoa powder
    1 c Heavy or whipping cream
    1 1/2 c Milk
    1 ts Vanilla
    2 lg Eggs

    The combination of cocoa powder and unsweetened chocolate creates an ice cream with a more complex texture. Jerry refers to this as “mouth feel”.

    Melt the unsweetened chocolate in the top of a double boiler over hot, not boiling water. Gradually whisk in the cocoa and heat, stirring constantly, until smooth. ( the chocolate may “seize” or clump together. Don’t worry, the milk will dissolve it). Whisk in the milk, a little at a time, and heat until completely blended. remove from the heat and let cool. Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy, 1-2 minutes. Whisk in the sugar, a little at a time, then continue whisking until completely blended, about 1
    minute more. Pour in the cream and vanilla and whisk to blend. Pour the chocolate mixture into the cream mixture and blend. Cover and refrigerate until cold, about 1-3 hours, depending on your refrigerator. Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions.

    VARIATION: Chocolate Chocolate chip: Add 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips after the ice cream stiffens, about 2 minutes before it is done, then continue freezing until the ice cream is ready. The rick fully textured ice cream is a chocoholic’s delight. Some of Ben and Jerry’s friends take it a step further and serve it with hot fudge sauce!

    2 c Heavy or whipping cream
    1/2 Lemon; juice of
    1 c Milk

    Compare to other fresh fruit, raspberries are intensely flavorful and very tart, so to make ice cream you need less fruit and more sugar.

    Toss the raspberries, 3/4 cup sugar, and the lemon juice together in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours, stirring every 30 minutes. Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy, 1-2 minutes. Whisk in thr remaining 3/4 cup sugar, a little at a time, then continue whisking until completely
    blended, about 1 minute more. Pour in the heavy cream and milk and whisk to blend. Drain the juice from the raspberries into the cream mixture and blend. Mash the raspberries until pureed and stir them into the cream mixture. Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze following the manufacturer’s instructions. Makes 1 generous quart.

    NOTE: If you prefer a chunkier raspberry ice cream, return the raspberries to the refrigerator after pouring off the juice. After the ice cream stiffens, about 2 minutes before it is done, add the whole raspberries.
