This is a Carolina classic homemade ice cream recipe that I love!
2 Cups half & half
2 Cups sugar
10 ounce jar Maraschino Cherries (with juice)
2 3/4 Cups Cheerwine Soda
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 (13 oz) can evaporated milk
Milk (as needed)
Whisk together eggs and half & half in the top of a double boiler.
Place double boiler on stove and continue stirring or whisking until eggs mixture is heated through then add sugar. Stir until dissolved and take off heat.
Stir in sweetened condensed milk and evaporated milk.
Pour in jar of cherries as well as liquid. Place this in the refrigerator until chilled.
Add Cheerwine Soda to the chilled mixture and pour into Ice Cream Freezer container.
Add enough milk to raise mixture to “fill” line.
Now comes the hardest part. The wait! Especially when you have 4 children asking every few minutes, how much longer!
