Pomegranate Gelato

Writers have to eat too. For those of you who love pomegranates, here is a recipe that is easy, but heavenly. You'll need an ice cream maker. 


1-1/2 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup whole milk
3/4 cup sugar
1-1/2 T cornstarch
1/8 tsp. salt
1-1/4 cups pomegranate juice, freshly extracted or bottled
1/4 cup Grand Marnier
1-2 tsp. lime juice

  1. Whisk together cream, milk, sugar, cornstarch, and salt in a 3-quart heavy saucepan.
  2. Bring the mixture to a boil (about 2 minutes), whisking all the time and being careful not to burn it.
  3. When the mixture thickens, remove it from the heat, place it in an uncovered bowl, and refrigerate until cool (about 1 hour). Impatient? Toss a tray of ice cubes in a large stainless steel bowl and set the bowl of custard on top of the ice cubes.
  4. Whisk in the remaining ingredients and freeze in an ice cream maker. It's to die for. Makes 1 quart, but you can double this recipe.
