Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 egg yolks, beaten
  • 2 cups whipping (heavy) cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Red or green food color, if desired
  • 3 medium eating apples, peeled, cored and cut up
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Steps

  • 1
    Mix 1/2 cup sugar, the milk, salt and egg yolks in 1-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, just to boiling (do not boil). Refrigerate uncovered in chilled bowl 1 hour to 1 hour 30 minutes or until room temperature.
  • 2
    Stir whipping cream, vanilla and 3 or 4 drops food color into milk mixture.
  • 3
    Place half of the apples, 1/2 cup sugar and the lemon juice in food processor or blender. Cover and process, using quick on-and-off motions, until coarsely chopped. Add remaining apples. Cover and process until finely chopped but not mashed.
  • 4
    Stir apple mixture into milk mixture. Pour into 2-quart ice-cream freezer. Freeze according to manufacturer's directions.

  • Fill a graham cracker pie shell with apple ice cream. Poke holes in ice cream, and top with a layer of caramel topping for Caramel Apple Ice-Cream Pie.
  • Just a bit of ice cream left over? Melt it to use as a creamy sauce for bread pudding or pear pie.
