Pumpkin Ice Cream

Pumpkin Ice Cream
1 quart

Pumpkin lends itself to many dishes both savory and sweet. A large scoop of pumpkin ice cream drenched in caramel sauce and garnished with candied pumpkin makes a sophisticated sundae.



  1. Combine milk, cream, and caramel in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to simmer, stirring frequently as caramel melts.

  2. Fill a large bowl with ice and water; set aside. Whisk egg and sugar in a bowl until thick and pale, about 4 minutes. While whisking, very slowly add a little hot milk mixture to egg mixture. Add more milk mixture, whisking, until combined. Add vanilla, lemon juice, and puree; combine. Strain into a clean bowl; chill in ice bath.

  3. Freeze in an ice-cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions. After churning, transfer to freezer until firm. Serve with milk caramel and candied pumpkin, if desired.
