Handmade Rum and Raisin Ice Cream

This ice cream is unbelievable. It's so smooth, creamy, rich and fragrant! It's so good I can't stop licking the utensils while making it. It's nothing like those bought in a tub. I've used real rum not the artificial flavor and it tastes way superior! Poor Fat cheeks can't have any of these as it contains alcohol. Hubby loves it too, especially the plump raisins soaked full of rum. =)

- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1/3 cup dark rum
- 4 egg yolks
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 11/2 cup milk
-3/4 cup whipping cream

- soak raisins in rum over night
- drain raisins & set aside rum
- whisk yolks with sugar in a bowl
- bring milk to a boil
- once milk starts to bubble, remove from heat
- add to yolk mixture gradually, whisking all the time
- add rum (I added rum here hoping to cook away some alcohol)
- return milk & yolk mixture to pan over medium heat
- cook till thickens, stirring all the while
- leave to cool
- add raisins and mix well
- whip cream till soft peaks form
- fold into mixture
- pour into container, freeze
- beat with fork twice every four hours then leave to freeze till set
