Raspberry Frozen Custard

Raspberry Frozen Custard

Call it frozen custard, call it gelato – by any name this smooth and intensely flavored frozen dessert is fantastic. You can freeze the custard in an old-fashioned ice cream maker using ice and salt, but it’s absolutely effortless in one of the new electric machines. Do remember to pre-freeze the container portion of the ice cream maker.
