Pumpkin Ice Cream

I received the replacement bowl for my ice cream maker in record time.  I was told it would take 2 – 4 weeks, and it only took about 5 days!  But then I got so busy with other things, ice cream got put towards the bottom of the list.  Then Fall came and the need for all things pumpkin.

This recipe is from the Kitchenaid booklet which came with the ice cream maker.

Substitution made, noted below.

Scald cream in a heavy saucepan.  Whisk yolks, sugar, and vanilla in a medium bowl.  Gradually whisk in the cream, add the spice.  Return to saucepan and stir over med-low heat until mixture thickens, about 10 minutes; do not boil.  Remove from heat.  Whisk in the heavy cream and the pumpkin.  Strain into bowl.  Refrigerate until well chilled.

When the mixture has completely cooled, freeze according to your manufacturers instructions for your ice cream maker.
