Fresh Fruit

Ingredients

4 cups milk
4 eggs, beaten
2 cups sugar
teaspoon salt
2 cups heavy cream
2 tablespoons vanilla
Sliced peaches or strawberries


Method

Prepare sliced peaches or strawberries and sprinkle with sugar and allow to set until the make juice. Use enough fruit to make about 1 qt. of fruit purée Put fruit and juice into blender and coarsely purée. You should have about 1 blender full or about 1 qt. Add fruit purée to the custard mixture which has been cooled or chilled overnight in the refrigerator. (you can make the custard the day before and put in refrigerator. Prepare the fruit and let it sit overnight in the refrigerator as well.) This recipe assumes you have a 1 gallon freezer.


The freezer should never be filled more that ¾ full because the ice cream expands as it freezes and it will overflow if the can is too full. You can also make raspberry ice cream but don't use as many raspberries (probably 2 cups of purée is enough) as they have a much more intense flavour Actually you can add just about any fruit you would like to try.
