Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 envelope unflavored gelatin
  • 4 cups whole milk
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1 pound fresh dark sweet cherries, pitted and halved or 1 1/2 packages (10 oz) frozen sweet cherries
  • 1 package (10 oz) frozen unsweetened red raspberries or 2 1/2 cups fresh red raspberries
  • 1/4 cup frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • Sliced fresh strawberries and/or fresh mint leaves (optional)

Directions

  • In a large saucepan, combine sugar and gelatin. Stir in milk. Cook and stir over medium heat just until mixture starts to boil. Remove from heat. Whisk about 1 cup of the hot mixture into beaten eggs; return all to saucepan. Cook and stir for 2 to 3 minutes or until mixture coats the back of a clean metal spoon. Do not boil. Stir in cherries, raspberries, and orange juice concentrate. Cover and chill for 4 to 24 hours or until mixture is set.
  • Transfer the mixture to a 4- or 5-quart ice cream freezer; freeze according to the manufacturer’s directions. Serve immediately or, if desired, ripen for 4 hours. If desired, garnish with sliced strawberries and/or mint leaves.
