all raw ice cream
ive been wanting to try this for a long time. and it came out pretty good! here in new hampshire farmers can sell their milk to who ever they want even if its not pasturized. in many states this is not possible and you have to use loopholes to get raw milk. so we found a great family here with two beautiful gernsey cows who sell the milk that they cant use. we got our first batch last week and it was SO good. the cream is so yellow right now with all the spring growth and gurnseys also produce extra yellow cream.
i think that raw milk, raw eggs, cacao, and raw local honey are all such healthful foods - why not put them together! i havent found any raw cream yet and didnt want to skim my milk but if you have some substitute 1 1/2 c with the milk. it will make it much creamier and more like regular ice cream. the all whole milk version came out damn good though.
RAW CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM:
3 3/4 c whole raw milk
3 egg yolks
1/2 c cacao powder (chocolate that has not been roasted)
1/2 c - 3/4 c raw honey (i used 1/2 c and it was fine. if you tend to like things sweeter add more)
(1 tsp vanilla extract - optional. are vanilla beans roasted? i dont know. oh well its only a teaspoon!)
blend in the blender till the honey is all mixed in. i then put it into my ice cream maker for churning. if you dont have one you could just put it in the freezer and mix it up every once in a while. the more you mix the creamier it will be but you do want it to stay cold too.
