Orange Ice Cream

Orange Ice Cream

Ingredients

  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 cup cold whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon orange extract
  • 3 to 4 drops orange food color (optional, but very nice)

Instructions

  1. Combine milk and sugar in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, and stir until reduced by 1/3. Remove from heat. Let cool completely, stirring constantly while cooling. After cooling, it should ribbon when poured from a spoon.
  2. Squeeze orange juice through a sieve to remove pulp. Add orange juice to the milk and sugar mixture. Mix well.
  3. Using a mixer, beat whipping cream for 30 seconds. Add to the first mixture, then add orange extract and orange food color. Beat until soft peaks form.
  4. Pour into a rectangular dish and smooth the top. Shake to remove air bubbles.
  5. Cover and freeze for 8 to 10 hours.
