This recipe can add a multitude of things, but my favorite is to swap out the almonds for pistachios. If you decided to add chocolate chips, do not do so until after the first hour of freezing. Serve with whipped cream or even a scoop into your favorite hot coffee. Enjoy!

How To Make homemade rum raisin and slivered almond ice cream

  • 1
    Place all ingredients in a pot. Bring to a boil while whisking the entire time. This is important so that you do not scramble your eggs.

    Then drop to low/simmer. Cook for 1 hour. Stirring frequently, so that the raisins do not stick to the bottom of the pan. The almonds float.
