Taffy Apple Ice Cream
Who says making homemade ice cream is done only during summer? Taffy apple ice cream is wonderful as is, but it's also the perfect accompaniment for many traditional fall and winter desserts. Granny Smith or other tart apples work best in this flavorful ice cream.
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
2 (12-ounce) cans evaporated milk (3 cups total)
1 tablespoon molasses
4 beaten large eggs
2 cups whipping cream
3 cups peeled, cored, and finely chopped apple
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Apple slices (optional)
Caramel ice cream topping (optional)
- In a medium saucepan combine granulated sugar, brown sugar, milk, and molasses. Cook and stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves; remove from heat. Slowly stir 1 cup of hot milk mixture into beaten eggs, then return to hot mixture in saucepan. Cook and stir over low heat just until bubbling; do not boil. Remove from heat. Cool slightly. Cover and chill.
- Stir in whipping cream, chopped apple, and vanilla. Freeze in a 4 or 5-quart ice cream freezer according to manufacturer's directions. Ripen ice cream for 4 hours. Garnish with apple slices and caramel topping, if desired.
Makes about 2 quarts; 16 servings.
