    Raw, unsweetened ice cream, anyone?

    Primal Fuel
    Hello Primal folks!

    I just picked up a gallon of fresh, raw, grass-fed cream yesterday--so wonderful and sweet on the new spring grass that I want to do something with it before culturing the majority for butter. If I start pouring it into a glass I'm gonna down a whole quart... so I figured I'd make some plain, sweet-cream ice cream with it, and save it for a treat at some point when I have a jones on for dessert.

    The Ben & Jerry's original sweet cream base just calls for cream, eggs, and sugar. I figured I'd use a couple (ultra-rich) duck eggs and just leave out the sugar. Anyone tried this? The actual recipe book doesn't call for cooking the base, but most sites online recommend it be cooked. Does anyone know if this is done for any reason other than food safety (ie custard texture, or whatever)?

    Also, just for a chuckle, here's a recipe I found while poking around for raw/primal ice cream advice: Raw Ice Cream --slippery elm? We use that as an anti-diarrheal medication when the dog has a runny butt ><

    I've read that if you don't cook the eggs, you will end up with frozen egg lumps, or a lumpy base. Frozen scrambled eggs, yum *sarcasm*

    my fave raw primal ice cream is to just toss some coconut milk in my ninja with frozen fruit. Whiz it up into ice cream!

    Our favorite ice cream is just fresh cream and frozen fruit put through the processor. I think you would be able to use raw egg if it was whipped to a foam first, but don't quote me on that

    I'm still wanting to make that chocolate banana rum ice cream: no sugar, made with coconut milk so no dairy, and 100% pure awesome sounding.

    Hmm. Do they separate out from the cream...?

    ETA: the internetz has spoken--sounds like raw eggs are the way it was always done up until the scourge of industrial eggs and accompanying food safety concerns. Raw cream and raw pasture-raised duck eggs it is. Think I'll throw in a handful of cacao nibs, too!

    Add vanilla if you have it! MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM! For raw egg ice cream if you whip the egg whites a bit apparently it gives a better consistancy.

    It's also possible to whip the whole egg, although it won't get nearly as fluffy as just whites. To do this, just slightly warm the eggs in a double boiler, stirring constantly. Once they are just warm to the touch, start whipping.

    No extract, but I do have a few vanilla beans... maybe I'll scrape one of those bad boys into it =)
