I'm a bit of a pumpkin freak in the fall. I puree my own pumpkin and make whatever I can with it. This past fall, I tried Pumpkin Ice Cream because the sticker shock of the versions in the grocery store sent me into a Rage. So, here is a Recipe for Really Easy Pumpkin Ice Cream.
Really Easy Pumpkin Ice Cream
1 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2/ cups whole milk
2 1/2 cups heavy cream
2 cups pumpkin puree (if you don't make your own, then make sure you don't use pumpkin pie filling- it's a totally different thing!)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
Combine sugar, spices and milk in a large bowl. Mix with either a wire whisk or electric mixer until sugar dissolves.
Add pumpkin puree and mix.
Add heavy cream and mix until well combined.
Pour into the freezer bowl of your ice cream maker and process for 25-30 minutes until thick.
Pour into smaller containers and freeze for a few hours for firmer consistency.
