Jam Ice Cream

Jam ice cream 101 
I have been meaning to post for months that I predict the new trend is going to be ice cream. Just like cup-cakes there will be tea shirts, fun ways to bling up, pretty containers, ice cream carriers (Which if I was rich I would be creating a fun carrier for a pint of homemade ice cream), pillows, who knows what else. Out with cup-cakes in with ice cream! Well we will see if I am right???

I was lucky enough to win a gift certificate at Once Upon a Plate, Mari (thank you dear friend xoxo) from Wayfair. I decided to get a new ice cream maker. One that makes 2 quarts of ice cream, since I am making it all the time. I LOVE my new machine and have a ton of ice cream ideas.

One the my latest creation that was a big hit, is jam ice cream. It started because I was craving raspberries ice cream but did not have raspberries. I did however have raspberry jam. The ice cream was splendid and easy, a favorite combination of mine. I will say you need a soft jam or jelly. Feel free to make this with any milk or non-milk combo, just make sure you have 3 cups. I think it is a brilliant way to use up leftover jam!! I am off to make mango lassi ice cream (made with homemade kifer) and maybe some cafe borgia ice cream!!!

Jam ice cream 202 

Jam Ice Cream

1 1/2 cups half and half

and 1 1/2 cups of heavy cream (or the amount of liquid your ice cream maker calls for)

1/3 cup soft jam, I used raspberry

pinch of salt

2 TBL. vodka or liquor that goes with your flavor (this is optional and to keep the ice cream from being rock hard)

Whisk all together, pour in ice cream machine and run 30 minutes. Transfer to a container and set in freezer, to finishes firming up.

Serve a scoop with a bit more jam drizzled on top!!

You are brilliant! I'm so going to try this.


Just popping back to those who found the beginning of my blog post scary. I didn't mean to be misleading, just got caught up in my own fun. So, sorry. One blog friend commented that her nieces daughter was kidnapped when she was five. They got her back and she was fine but...ouch. As I said, I didn't mean to be insensitive.

I hope you are not serving this ice cream to children. Please don't think just a little alcohol is harmless, it is not. I am sure you wouldn't want to harm a child that way!


This looks just wonderful. As soon as the thermometer is willing to move above 65 degrees I'm giving it a try!

Blessings, Debbie

Congratulations on winning Clarice :) Great choice, an ice cream maker (that's on my wish list) The ice cream looks delicious (no vodka on mine thank you :)). I have a wonderful Vanilla Custard Ice Cream recipe if you would like. Thanks for always sharing such neat things :)

Have a blessed day!


That is really awesome, Clarice! Let me tell you - that looks sooooooo good. I'm not a huge fan of ice cream (I know that sounds crazy!), but I'd definitely like this. Thanks for sharing how you made it! Theresa xoxo


Refreshing and delicious!


Yum. If I lived close to you, I would weigh 300 pounds... But I would have a full and happy tummy! Delish!
