Raspberry Ice Cream

I think my love for raspberries is pretty evident. I adore them. I especially love them when they are in season and on sale! 🙂 Like many others I have discovered how wonderful homemade ice cream really is. I must always have some in the freezer, and since Joe and I both LOVE ice cream that means I will be making it at least once a week!  I can’t wait to try all of the different recipes in the William Sonoma Ice Cream book.      

Raspberry Ice Cream


1 Cup whole milk

1 Cup heavy cream

3 large egg yolks

¾ cup sugar

2 cups fresh raspberries




In a saucepan, combine the milk and ½ cup of the cream. Cook over medium heat until bubbles form around the edges of the pan, about five minutes.


Meanwhile, combine the egg yolks, ½ cup of the sugar, and remaining ½ cup cream in a bowl. Whisk until the mixture is smooth and the sugar begins to dissolve.


Remove the milk mixture from the heat. Gradually whisk about ½ cup of the hot milk mixture into the egg mixture until smooth. Pour the egg mixture into the saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon and keeping the custard at a low simmer, until it is thick enough to coat the back of the spoon and leaves a clear trail when a finger is drawn through it, 4-6 minutes. Do not let the custard boil. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl.


Place the bowl in a larger bowl partially filled with ice cubes and water. Stir occasionally until the custard is cool.


Put the raspberries and the remaining ¼ cup sugar in a food processor and process until smooth. Strain the berries through a fine-mesh sieve into a clean bowl. Add the raspberry juice to the custard and stir to combine. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.


Pour the custard into an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturers recommendations. Transfer ice cream to a freezer-safe container and freeze until firm, at least 3 hours.
