Ingredients

For the Compote Ice Cream :

  • 2 cups pitted black cherries fresh or frozen
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ medium lemon(s) juiced

For the Ice Cream

  • ½ cup sugar
  • 6 large Egg YOLK(s), Organic Pasture Raised
  • ¾ cup whole milk
  • 2 cups Crème Fraîche

Instructions

Make the cherry compote:

  • Combine the cherries, sugar, and lemon juice in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook until the mixture looks like jam, about 20 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Remove from the heat and allow to cool completely before layering with the ice cream.

Make the ice cream:

  • In a bowl, whisk together the sugar and egg yolks until light and creamy.
  • In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, heat the milk just until a few bubbles start to form. Slowly and gradually, pour the hot milk over the sugar and yolk mixture, whisking constantly.
  • Transfer the mixture to the refrigerator for 6 hours, or until completely chilled.
  • Using a blender or electric mixer, combine the chilled mixture and the Crème Fraîche until smooth.
  • Churn the mixture in an ice cream machine according to the manufacturer’s directions. once churned, scoop a few spoonfuls of the ice cream into a container, and then add a few spoonfuls of the compote. Continue layering, then cover with a lid or plastic wrap and store in the freezer until ready to serve, or up to 1 month.

Notes

You can use strawberries in place of the cherries. You can also layer the mango syrup in place of the berries, if desired.
