So, what does one do with an abundance of milk? Make ice cream! When it comes to ice cream, we are purists. Actually, I'd say my husband is an expert at it (eating it, I mean). So, our latest adventure with cream involves two fine ingredients...bing cherries and dark chocolate. Mmmmm... Inspired by our youthful indulgences, when we'd each have a pint of Ben & Jerry's (he...chocolate chip cookie dough...me...cherry garcia), we introduced our children to a culinary delight without all the additives and yucky stuff. So, here it is....
2 qts plus 1 cup cream (the real deal)
2 cups organic evaporated cane juice
1/2 tsp salt
2 TBS flour
a dash of pure almond extract
2 lbs bing cherries, pitted
about 8 oz. dark chocolate, broken into pieces
Mix all but the chocolate and follow your ice cream freezer directions for freezing. About 5 minutes before completion, add the chocolate. If you do it too soon, it will be too hard to eat. Be careful...when you open that canister, it will be too hard to resist.
