Strawberries soaked in Grand Marnier(R) are folded into a not-too-rich vanilla ice cream base to make a delicious dessert.
Ready in: 1 day 9 hours 30 mins
- 2 pounds strawberries, quartered
- 1 cup Grand Marnier(R) orange-flavored liqueur
- 10 egg yolks
- 1 pound sugar
- 1 quart plus 1 cup half & half
- 1 quart heavy cream
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
Prep: 20 mins | Cook: 10 mins | Extra time: 1 day 9 hours, freezing
1. Place strawberries in a stainless steel bowl and cover with orange liqueur. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let macerate (or marinate) for 8 hours or overnight in the refrigerator.
2. The next day, drain the berries, reserving the juice in a saucepan. Heat the liquid on medium heat and simmer to reduce by half. Then let the liquid cool, pour back over strawberries in bowl, cover, and refrigerate.
3. In a stainless steel bowl, whip the egg yolks with the sugar to incorporate.
4. Heat all of the half & half to almost scalding, then remove from heat and slowly incorporate it into the egg mix. Place the stainless steel bowl over a pot of boiling water (or pour it into a double boiler) and stir the eggs constantly until the mixture coats the back of a spoon.
5. Remove egg mixture from heat and add the heavy cream, vanilla, and salt. Chill for at least 3 hours, until very cold.
6. When cold, freeze it in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s directions.
7. After the ice cream has frozen, spoon it out into a very large bowl and add the strawberries and the reduced strawberry liqueur. Stir thoroughly. Pack into appropriate containers and freeze again for at least 24 hours.
