How to make it

  • Scald 3 cups of the milk in the top of double boiler. Beat eggs well; add salt, sugar, and the remaining cup of milk. Stir egg mixture slowly into the hot milk and cook over a small amount of simmering hot water, stirring constantly, until mixture just coats a clean metal spoon. To prevent curdling, do not have the water boiling vigorously, and take care not to overcook. Stop cooking as soon as the custard coats the spoon and remove from heat at once. Cool pan of custard in another pan containing cold water, then chill thoroughly in refrigerator. Combine pawpaw puree with the lemon juice and add to the chilled custard along with the cream and vanilla. Pour mixture into a chilled 1-gallon ice-cream freezer canister and fit dasher into place. Freeze and ripen according to directions accompanying ice cream freezer. (The Wild Flavor)

    No, I do not grow them, but a farm very close t me does, and they grow wild all over (if you know where to look!). From my understanding, they do grow wild in PA (I'm originally from NW PA); what part of PA are you in? I know they grow wild up through the C&O canal in western mayland. They do not travel well, so you should do some Googleing and see where is the closest grower. I know there are several around my mom in Canfield, OH.

    I love homemade ice cream. I've been looking at Paw Paw plants in my gardening catalogs. Do you grow them? If so, how difficult are they to grow? I'm in PA, so not sure how they'd grown up here.

    I'm keeping your recipe--if I can't grow them, maybe I can find them in a market somewhere. So far, no luck.
