Pumpkin Ice Cream

To make your own pumpkin puree, use 1 large or 2 medium Sugar Pie or other eating (not field) pumpkins. Cut out the stem and quarter the pumpkin lengthwise. In a preheated 400deg.F oven, bake the quarters, cut side down, in a shallow roasting pan with a little water in the bottom until tender, about 1 hour. Let cool, scrape out the seeds, cut the flesh from the peels, and force it through a medium-mesh sieve or the medium disk of a food mill. Freeze any leftover puree for up to 2 months.

First time making ice cream!
October 21, 2012
We were at our local Trader Joes the other day where we were handed a sample of their pumpkin ice cream, my son was ecstatic at his first taste of ice cream. After looking at the ingredients (carmel coloring) I decided to attempt to make my own. This recipe was intimidating considering I've never made ice cream before. But, my 2 year old and I went for it and I'm SO glad we did! We used our own homemade pumpkin puree, which I think is neat since it helps make the connection of the real pumpkin going into the ice cream for my son. We try to avoid all processed foods, we used all organic ingredients, and even substituted the brown sugar with maple syrup following the mention in another review. It turned out great! Thanks for the great recipe!

instead of pie
July 31, 2012
This was easy to make. I didn't do the ice bath; but I did let it cool down in fridge for 2hrs. My husband loved it; its just like eatting pumpkin pie.. I did replace 1 cup of heavy cream for whole milk. Next time I might cut heavy cream out completely. Great for those who love pumpkin.
Pros: Healthy, Impressive, Will Make Again
