Old-fashioned Ginger Ice Cream


This ice cream was recommended by a friend, Bud, who recalled the flavourful ginger ice cream of his youth.

Recipe courtesy of Donna Fitzpatrick


  • 2/3 cup (150 ml) sugar
  • 2 cups (500 ml) milk
  • 3/4 cup (175 ml) ginger glacé, grated
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) vanilla
  • 2 cups (500 ml) cream


  1. Combine eggs with sugar and heat over low heat.
  2. Add milk and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until heated, but don’t bring to a boil.
  3. Allow to cool and add ginger, vanilla and cream. Stir, then refrigerate until cold.
  4. Mix well and pour into an ice cream maker (Donvier is recommended), stirring frequently so it won’t stick to the sides.
  5. Serve in cones or in bowls; makes 8 to 10 delicious 1/2-cup (125 ml) servings.
