No ImageCherry Ice Cream with Chocolate Chips

Did you make it? Rate it!

    Just made it and came up with this variation as a result of a mistake I made while making it:
    If you add the lemon juice to the saucepan while heating the ingredients, it curdles the milk and cream and you actually get a Cherry Cheesecake ice cream… Yumm!

    Followed recipe. Very little flavor even with amaretto. Soaked some chopped cherries in vodka and folded them in. Meh. Maybe should have soaked cherries in vodka and sugar beforehand and used those in blended cream?

    I’m an instant gratification kind of girl, so any ice cream that doesn’t have a custard base that needs to be made and cooled is my kind of recipe!

    Hi Elise,

    I found your site while looking for cherry ice cream since it’s cherry season now in Washington state. You have a lot of great recipes here so I’ll be back! This is a really, really good ice cream and pretty easy to make. I typically create a custard base, and I still think it makes a richer ice cream, but this version was nice. A few things I modified; used half & half in place of the milk, used chopped chocolate instead of shavings, and added some chopped cherries. In order not to have frozen hard cherry chunks (you have to get the water out of the fruit) I chopped up about 2/3 of a cup of cherries and soaked them in about 1/4 cup vodka and a few tablespoons sugar for several hours, stirring occasionally. Then strain and add to the ice cream after churning. I also added the chocolate after churning as well. I think if I make this again, I’ll try the custard base, but maybe not if I’m in a rush!
    Thanks!

    What a terrible waste of beautiful cherries. My whole family hated it so much we tossed it out. Don’t cut corners with this recipe. I thought it was worth a shot but I’m going back to making an ice cream custard and doing it properly.
