This is in my Ladies Home Journal 50 Greatest Desserts cook booklet. It has just a few ingredients and sounds simple to make. I have not tried this recipe. If you take a chance on it, I truly hope you enjoy it. Cook time is freeze time and it is estimated.
- 1 quart buttermilk
- 2 cups heavy cream or 2 cups whipping cream
- 1 1⁄2 cups sugar
- 1⁄4 cup dark rum
- salt, pinch
- Combine all ingredients.
- Stir until sugar is dissolved.
- Transfer to ice-cream maker.
- Freeze according to the manufacturers instructions.
Yum! I halved this recipe so it would fit in my ice cream maker, but I left the rum at 1/4 cup (shhh) as I love the flavor. I also added some raisins, as I have a lot and I love rum raisin ice cream! I think the raisins actually took away from the rest of the ice cream; they were kind of tough (probably too dry) but better raisins might make this the perfect rum raisin ice cream! I loved the flavor the buttermilk added to this recipe. Great!
