Three of a Kind Ice Cream

This recipe is from "The Real Festivus" by Daniel O'Keefe. It is the author's grandmother's recipe. O'Keefe explained, "The tradition is to call this three of a kind, and to use three of each ingredient. But that makes a very big batch - it fills three old-type ice trays. Instead, I usually make batches of one or two of each ingredient. Freeze it in any kind of container that is freezable, probably plastic." I have yet to try this recipe; I'm putting it here for safekeeping :)

directions

  • Mix all together in a large bowl.
  • Freeze, stirring occasionally. If you don't stir as it freezes, it will separate a little bit, with the creamy part tending to the bottom and the fruit to the top. But if you stir it, it will be smooth and lovely.
  • Freezing time varies.

    Ambrosia from the gods. This is an old family recipe for us too, except we limit the "three" theme to the fruits. We use 2 cups water, 2 cups sugar and 2 cups of half and half. I wonder where the recipe came from originally. I wonder if it was in an early magazine picked up by a handful of people for whom it became an old family recipe. Another similar version of the recipe is in the Virginia Hospitality cookbook under the name "Triple Treat." It omits the water and uses milk and cream both. I've never tried that version. Over the years we have experimented with the recipe slightly--freezing it in a cranked ice cream freezer and in freezer pop trays. I also use the fruit combo, ice, yogurt and splenda to make a smoothie. My next experiment will be to omit the dairy altogether and make sorbet. It doesn't get much better than this.
