The best way to make rum raisin ice cream

Ahh, the magic of this no-churn ice cream methodology!!! Able to see how straightforward it’s? Or do you already know since you found my no-churn Strawberry ice cream or Mango ice cream??

How to make Rum raisin ice cream

  1. Soak raisins – Soaking raisins in rum is essential not just for nice rum flavour but additionally as a result of the rum stops the raisins from freezing into mini ice cubes.

    Give the raisins a tough chop. This helps them take up the rum extra simply. Break them up along with your fingers (they’re typically packed collectively tightly within the luggage) then soak in sizzling rum for half-hour.

    The raisins ought to take up a lot of the rum. If there’s any residual liquid, pour it off. You need to restrict the full liquid rum within the ice cream combination to 1/4 cup (60 ml) whole. Any greater than this and the ice cream received’t set sufficient as a result of rum doesn’t freeze as a result of excessive alcohol content material. Sure, I did trial and error to determine the utmost quantity of rum I might get into the ice cream!!

  2. Condensed milk & flavours – Beat collectively the condensed milk, vanilla and allspice powder, simply to mix. You don’t really want a beater for this step, I simply do as a result of I’ve bought the beater out anyway. Simply give it a fast wipe earlier than whipping the cream.

  3. Stir in raisins – Add the rum soaked raisins and stir to combine via.

  4. Whip cream till it’s nicely whipped. It is going to take about 2 1/2 to three minutes with a handheld beater, or 1 to 1 1/2 minutes on excessive with a stand mixer. We’re not searching for elegant softly whipped cream right here. We wish good aeration! (However not butter, which is what you’ll find yourself with at concerning the 8 minute mark, so cease earlier than then! 😂)

  1. Lighten condensed milk – Add an enormous scoop of whipped cream into the condensed milk combination then fold via with a rubber spatula or large scooping spoon. The aim of this step is to loosen up the condensed milk combination earlier than mixing all of it into the cream to take care of as a lot aeration within the cream as we are able to. Extra aeration = creamier ice cream!

    Simply gently combine the cream via till it’s principally integrated. Some lumps is okay.

  2. Combine with cream – Pour the condensed milk combination into the cream them fold to mix till it’s cream-lump-free.

    Be light right here, don’t combine vigorously, as we need to protect as a lot of the aeration within the cream as we are able to. To assist take away cream lumps, “smear” seen cream bits throughout the floor or towards the facet of the bowl moderately than vigorously stirring.

Pouring Rum raisin ice cream into ice cream container

  1. Pour the combination right into a glass or ceramic container that’s at the least 1.5 litres / 1.5 quarts. I exploit a 1.75 litre / 1.75 quart glass loaf pan (28 x 15 x 7.5cm / 11 x 6 x 3″).

    Clean the floor, pop a lid on or cowl with cling wrap.

  2. Freeze for 12 hours. Then scoop and serve like regular ice cream!

    You’ll be able to principally scoop it straight out of the freezer, you don’t want to go away it out even for a minute earlier than scooping. That is the rum at work – alcohol doesn’t freeze strong. So, as famous above, truly my greatest “problem” on this recipe was determining how I can max out rum flavour with out the ice cream ending up like a slushy! (The reply is mirrored within the recipe 😂)

Scooping Rum raisin ice cream

Serve in cones or in bowls, as many or as little scoops as you want.

The ice cream will hold within the freezer for months, similar to “actual” ice cream. It does freeze a little bit firmer from day 3 and past, it solely requires a couple of minutes on the counter earlier than scooping.

Lastly, only a observe on the booziness of this ice cream! Regardless that the quantity of rum per serving is just not that a lot (3/4 cup in whole), let’s hold this one away from children and pooches. Ordinarily my recipes that use alcohol will prepare dinner the alcohol out so it’s negligible within the completed dish. However in rum raisin ice cream, it’s not. And that’s simply how we grown ups find it irresistible! – Nagi x
