Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups cold heavy cream
  • 0.5 cup cold milk
  • 0.5 cup sugar (I used Baker's, or superfine sugar, but regular sugar is ok)
  • lemon
  • juice of approximately 2 blood oranges
  • dash of orange extract
  • a drop or two of food coloring

Method

  1. Stir together the cream, milk, and sugar until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  2. Put the lemon juice into a measuring cup and add the blood orange juice until it measures 1/2 cup
  3. Add the juice to the cream mixture, along with the extract and food coloring, if using. I used a very small drop of yellow, orange, and pink to emphasize the color of mine.
  4. Pour into the chilled bowl of your ice cream machine and process according to the machine's directions.
  5. Spread the soft ice cream into a loaf sized pan and freeze for a couple of hours or longer, until firm.
