Ice-Tray Apricot Ice Cream

Recipe

If you are making ice cream in an ice tray, I find it advisable to use a slightly different mixture and to whip the cream, the result of which is nearer a frozen cream or a very rich, creamy version of sherbet. As it is very difficult to get luscious, ripe apricots these days, I make this ice cream with apricot preserves, which work beautifully.

Yield: Makes 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-pound jar pure apricot preserves
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1½ cups heavy cream

Directions

Rub the preserves through a strainer with a wooden spoon or put through a food mill.

Boil the water and sugar together for 5 minutes to make a simple syrup, then cool until cold. Combine the apricot purée and the syrup, mixing well.

Whip the heavy cream in a chilled bowl with a rotary beater or electric hand mixer (or in the bowl of an electric mixer) until it has doubled in volume and holds its shape when the beater is lifted.

Fold the cream thoroughly into the apricot mixture with a rubber spatula, then pour the mixture into refrigerator ice trays and put in the coldest part of the freezing compartment or freezer until frozen around the edges and mushy in the center.

Remove, turn into a bowl, and beat with a wooden spatula until smooth. Return the trays to the freezer.

Repeat this beating process 1 or 2 times, then return to the freezer and freeze until hard.

The beating process keeps the ice cream from forming crystals and makes it smooth.
