Pineapple-Orange Ice Cream - Frozen Cust
Pineapple-Orange Ice Cream - Frozen Custard
Yield: about 2 quarts
2 cups milk
1 1/3 cups sugar
3 cups fresh pineapple puree* (about 1.5 lb.)
2 cups whipping cream
1/4 cup frozen orange juice concentrate (about 1.5 oz.)
2 teaspoons grated orange peel
1 teaspoon vanilla
In medium saucepan, beat together eggs, milk and sugar. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture reaches 160 F and coats a metal spoon with a thin film. Cool quickly by setting pan in ice or cold water and stirring for a few minutes. Cover and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled, at least 1 hour.
When ready to freeze, pour chilled custard, puree, whipping cream, juice concentrate, peel and vanilla into 1-gallon ice cream freezer container. Freeze according to manufacturer’s directions. Transfer to freezer and freeze until firm.
*To puree, peel and core pineapple. Cut into chunks and place in 5-cup blender or food processor container. Cover. Blend at medium speed until smooth.
