You have to be brave and try this! I included half an hour for freezing- that's about how long it takes my ice cream maker. I know it is weird, but it is really rich and yummy. It's great for a midday desert or after a heavy meal. I'm not totally sure on the amount it makes. I made it for christmas and made a syrup with brandy and fruit. Apricot preserves, oranges, and cranberry was really great. I also added some orange and cranberry juice to those. I didn't post those because my amounts were too iffy. Pleeeeeeeeease try it!
