Overview

Choice is what it's all about: Choosing your favorite flavor, favorite topping or swirl-in, favorite frozen dessert. For no matter what kind of ice cream maker you own -- an inexpensive canister or a top-of-the-line electric freezer -- there's an extra special treat here for you.

Exciting flavors include an assortment of vanillas of varying degrees of richness, several great chocolates, Butter Pecan, Sensational Strawberry, Peaches 'n' Cream, Utterly Peanut Butter and Double Ginger to mention only a sampling. For an extra flourish, there's a collection of ice creams with add-ons -- swirls and twirls, sauces and toppings. There is even an entire chapter of great reduced-fat light ice creams and nonfat frozen yogurts with names like Creamy Banana, Cappuccino, Date Rum and Maple Crunch.

Many completely fat-free frozen delights are covered in the chapter called "Sorbets, Granitas and Other Ices." Enticing and refreshing, they come in flavors such as Kiwi-Lime, Mango Margarita, Spiced Rasberry and Strawberry Daquiri. And for showstopping, truly fabulous desserts, made completely in advance, turn to the last chapter, which contains ice cream cakes, pies and other frozen desserts.

Rum Raisin Ice Cream

Makes about 1 1/2quarts

This was probably the first flavor of commercially produced premium ice cream I ever tasted. Now I make it at home, using the best quality rum and, just for fun, a combination of dark and golden raisins.

3/4 cup raisins, preferably half dark and half golden (about 6 ounces)
About 3/4 cup dark rum
3 cups heavy cream
1 cup half-and-half or light cream
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. In a small nonreactive saucepan, combine the raisins with enough rum to cover. Bring to a simmer over low heat. (Watch carefully. If the alcohol gets too hot, it will ignite.) Remove from the heat and let cool. Strain the rum into a heatproof glass measuring cup and set aside. Reserve the raisins.

2. In a large bowl, combine the heavy cream and half-and-half. Gradually whisk in the sugar to blend. Whisk in the vanilla. Refrigerate, covered, until very cold, at least 3 hours or as long as 3 days.

3. Whisk the mixture to blend and pour into the canister of an ice cream maker. Freeze according to the manufacturer's directions. When the ice cream is at the soft-serve stage, add 1/3 cup of the rum and the raisins and process 1 minute longer. (Discard any remaining rum or reserve for another use.) Eat at once or transfer to a covered container and freeze up to 8 hours.


Raspberry Granita

Makes about 1 quart

Since raspberries vary greatly in sweetness, you really do have to taste here and adjust the sugar accordingly. Other berries can be used with the same process.

1 1/2 cups (about 1/2 pound) fresh or frozen unsweetened raspberries
3/4 cupwater
1/3 to 1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1. In a food processor or blender, combine the raspberries and water. Puree until smooth. Strain through a sieve into a medium bowl, pressing through as much fruit and juice as possible. Discard the seeds.

2. Add 1/3 cup sugar and the lemon juice. Stir to blend and dissolve the sugar, Taste for sweetness and add more sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, if needed. Cover and refrigerate until very cold, at least 2 hours or as long as 3 days.

3. Stir the mixture to blend and pour into the canister of an ice cream maker, Freeze according to the manufacturer's directions. Eat at once.

    So many wonderful recipes, so little time!

    The name of this recipe book is no lie. It really is the best ice cream maker cookbook, with lots of tantalizing recipes of varying levels of difficulty. I made the Sensational Strawberry ice cream yesterday, and it is sensational. After you use this book, you won't be able to go back to store bought ice cream, that's for sure. This book also has recipes for sorbets, frozen yogurts, ice cream cakes and ice cream pies.

    I can't wait to try more recipes from this book, and am especially looking forward to Honey Vanilla, Caribbean Coconut, Brown Sugar and Utterly Peanut Butter. They all sound so yummy!

    One warning -- a fair number of the recipes call for alcohol, but there are still more than enough non-alcoholic recioes to make the book worth purchasing even if you aren't interested in the ones with alcohol.

    Dawn

    Dawn is tall and very fast, very sporty, and smart. Make her a good guy, maybe starts out evil though...just a thought! Her skin is toned dark, and she has really long black hair in a braid or ponytail. Her eyes are green with blue flecks. Thanks for your time!
