Ben and Jerry's Raspberry Ice Cream

Ben and Jerry's Copycat Recipe

Makes 1 Quart

1 pint fresh raspberries
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 lemon, juice of
2 large eggs
2 cups heavy or possibly whipping cream
1 cup milk

Compare to other fresh fruit, raspberries are intensely flavorful and very tart, so to make ice cream you need less fruit and more sugar. Toss the raspberries, 3/4 c. sugar, and the lemon juice together in a bowl. Cover and chill for 2 hrs, stirring every 30 min. Whisk the Large eggs in a mixing bowl till light and fluffy, 1-2 min. Whisk in thr remaining 3/4 c. sugar, a little at a time, then continue whisking till completely blended, about 1 minute more. Pour in the heavy cream and lowfat milk and whisk to blend. Drain the juice from the raspberries into the cream mix and blend. Mash the raspberries till pureed and stir them into the cream mix. Transfer the mix to an ice cream maker and freeze following the manufacturer's instructions.

NOTE: If you prefer a chunkier raspberry ice cream, return the raspberries to the refrigerator after pouring off the juice. After the ice cream stiffens, about 2 min before it is done, add in the whole raspberries.
