- 1 cup rinsed raspberries
- 1 cup rinsed blackberries
- 2/3 cup finely mashed strawberries
- 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 cups half-and-half (light cream)
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1. In a blender, whirl raspberries and blackberries until smoothly puréed. Rub purée through a fine strainer into a bowl; discard seeds. Mix strawberries and 6 tablespoons sugar with purée. Set aside.
- 2. In a 2- to 3-quart pan, combine remaining 3/4 cup sugar and half-and-half. Stir over high heat until bubbles form at pan edge (scalding, about 180°), 5 to 8 minutes.
- 3. In a small bowl, whisk eggs to blend. Then whisk about 1/2 cup of the hot cream mixture into eggs. Return egg mixture to pan and stir over medium-low heat with a flexible spatula-scraper, scraping pan bottom and sides thoroughly for even cooking, until custard thickly coats a metal spoon (about 190°), 8 to 10 minutes.
- 4. Add vanilla to custard.
- 5. At once, nest pan in ice water and stir custard often until mixture is cold, 10 to 15 minutes.
- 6. Pour cold custard through a fine strainer into a bowl, then pour mixture into an ice cream maker (1-qt. or larger capacity), or strain directly into the maker; discard residue. Add berry mixture. Freeze according to manufacturer's directions until mixture is firm enough to scoop, dasher is hard to turn, or machine stops.
- 7. Serve softly frozen, or freeze airtight (see freezing facts).
- Firming and Storing Ice Cream:
- To get frozen desserts hard enough to scoop onto a cone, or to store them, transfer when frozen to an airtight container and put in the freezer at least 3 hours or up to 1 week.
- If freezing with ice and salt, leave the frozen dessert in ice and salt up to 3 hours.
- For best flavor and texture, serve frozen desserts within a week. On longer standing, icy crystals develop.
