Ben & Jerry's Sweet Cream Bases for Ice Cream

RG

Ingredients

Sweet Cream Base #1

  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups heavy or whipping cream
  • 1 cup milk

Sweet Cream Base #2

  • 2 cups heavy or whipping cream
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup half-and-half

Sweet Cream Base #3

  • 2 cups light cream
  • 1 cup sweetened condensed milk - cold

Instructions

  1. Sweet Cream Base #1: This is Ben and Jerry's most popular base, has creamy texture, medium body, and a subtle, understated taste. It's especially good as a background for fruit, cookies and candy. Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Whisk in the sugar, a little at a time, then continue to whisk until completely blended, about 1 minute more. Pour in the cream and milk and whisk to blend.
  2. Sweet Cream Base #2: This simple recipe is made with a minimum of ingredients and requires no cooking. It makes a very creamy ice cream with 25% butterfat, but it does not store well in home freezers, so be prepared to eat it all!! Pour the cream into a mixing bowl. Whisk in the sugar, a little at a time, then continue whisking until completely blended, about 1 minute more. Pour in the half-and-half and whisk to blend.
  3. Sweet Cream Base #3: This recipe makes a less creamy, less rich ice cream. Ben likes the slightly cooked flavor of the sweetened condensed milk. Whisk the light cream and the sweetened condensed milk together in a mixing bowl until blended.

Each base makes about 1 quart.
