How to Make Ice Cream - Prickly Pear
- First we make a syrup:
In a small pot, over medium heat, add the pear puree and the vanilla together, bring to a boil and then simmer for 15 - 20 minutes.
Remove from heat; when completely cooled, place in the refrigerator for about 2 hours to chill.
- In a large bowl add the milk and cream, mix and pour into a container with a lid and freeze for 1 hour.
- Now carefully stir the pear syrup into the frozen cream mixture, blending well.
Place back in the freezer until ready to serve. It usually tastes better the next day.
