Even Trump can’t say no to a frozen and creamy treat. According to Us Weekly, Trump particularly loves cherry-vanilla ice cream. You definitely can buy some at the grocery store, but we suggest this luscious version from Country Living.
- 1½ pounds pitted cherries, divided
- 1 cup sugar, divided
- 2½ cups heavy cream
- 1 cup whole milk
- ½ vanilla bean, seeds scraped out and pod reserved
- 8 large egg yolks
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- Red food coloring (optional)
Directions: Combine 1 pound cherries and ⅓ cup sugar in a small saucepan. Set over medium heat and cook until cherries soften, about 10 minutes. Process cherries through a food mill, strain, and discard solids. Return liquid to the pan and cook until syrup reduces to 1 cup, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl and let cool completely.
Fill a large bowl with ice water and place a fine sieve over a medium bowl. Combine cream, milk, vanilla seeds, and vanilla pod in a medium saucepan and cook over medium-high until mixture just comes to a boil. Whisk yolks and remaining sugar together in a large bowl until pale and thickened. Whisking constantly, slowly stream in milk mixture. Return to same saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring, until the mixture coats the back of the spoon, about 2 minutes. Strain mixture through sieve, then set over ice bath to cool completely.
Halve remaining cherries and toss with lemon juice. Set aside. Stir cherry syrup and food coloring into cooled ice cream base. Process in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions. Fold in halved cherries, transfer to an airtight container, cover, and freeze until solid.
