Raw Milk Ice Cream: Reader Recipe
Local Weston A. Price member, Francesca, writes in with a delicious, healthy recipe for raw milk ice cream that she makes with her Cuisinart ice cream maker. This would be great to have around for the holidays. Thanks, Francesca!
See the Real Milk Category in the left sidebar for more information on raw milk.
"We're big ice cream fans in our house and I started getting concerned about the use of carageenen in most ice cream. (I don't think Strauss uses it.) Also, I wanted to get away from white sugar, organic or not. I bought a Cuisinart ice cream maker and have been using raw milk and raw or Strauss cream with agave sweetener and vanilla. It takes about 1/2 an hour to make. The only downside is the freezer tub (for making the ice cream) is aluminum*. After making the ice cream I store it in a separate container."
1 cup raw milk
2 cups raw or Strauss cream
1/2 cup agave
2 tsp vanilla
Whisk the mixture before adding to the ice cream maker.
*I was at IKEA the other day and they have glass storage containers with silicon sealed lids. The seal is removable, too. They come in various sizes and have a cool stackable design. They have temperature-safe symbols on the bottom of the containers. I'm using one for the ice cream and it seems to be just fine in the freezer. Note from Carla: excellent for freezing stock too.
