DIRECTIONS

  • To make ice cream: Combine half-and-half and vanilla seeds (scraped from the vanilla beans) and pods in a saucepan over medium high heat cooking until milk scalds (10 minutes). Remove from heat and let stand for 15 minutes. Remove pods.
  • Whisk yolks (or egg substitute) and sugar in a bowl.
  • Reheat half-and-half.
  • Whisk 2 cups of the half and half into egg/sugar mixture and return all to pan. Cook over medium-low heat until mixture thickens (3-5 minutes). DO NOT BOIL.
  • Strain mixture into bowl. Cool one minute before stirring in raspberry juice.
  • Cover and refrigerate ice cream until well chilled.
  • Transfer to ice cream maker and process according to manufacturer's directions.
  • Freeze in freezer overnight.
  • To make hot fudge sauce: Melt chocolates (semisweet and unsweetened) with preserves and coffee powder in top of double boiler over simmering water, stirring occasionally (5-10 minutes).
  • Blend in 6 tablespoons cream and 1/4 cup raspberry juice and heat. (If necessary add more cream until desired consistency is reached. Sauce should be able to pour easily). Cool slightly before proceeding.
  • Beat 1 cup cream with sugar and 1 tablespoon raspberry juice until soft peaks form.
  • To serve: Spoon ice cream into individual glass bowls. Spoon sauce over. Top with raspberries, then whipped cream and sprinkle with almonds, if desired.
