    Fresh Fruit Ice Cream

    Heat in a double boiler or heavy saucepan until a film wrinkles over the top
    1 1/2 cups table cream (18%) or undiluted evaporated milk.
    Stir in
    1/2 cup granulated sugar
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    _Beat _
    4 egg yolks
    and stir in a little hot cream, then slowly stir this into remainder of hot cream.
    Cook over boiling water, stirring constantly, until custard is as thick as corn syrup.

    Stir in
    1 teaspoon vanilla (real not artificial)
    Fold in
    2 cups heavy cream, whipped ( 35% milk fat)
    1 1/2 cups fresh berries or peaches crushed.
    Pour into 2 refrigerator trays and freeze for about 3 hours.

    Notes from me:
    I do not know what a “refrigerator tray” is. I’ve looked in several books and on the net. The only trays I could find were ice cube trays or shelf trays. Can anyone help?
    All the italics within the recipe are as it appears.

    One of the uses of toughened glass is for “refrigerator trays”… like for cooking and baking… maybe a casserole type dish? Most likely a “food service term”… I am researching

    Yes, closest approximation is storage trays made of specially processed glass, most likely of different sizes, and ideal since the ice cream won’t stick to it too much…
    Food service grade types, and home type ones…
    Googled “what is…” and food service companies and suppliers popped up… also this question appeared in other forum “home ec” boards….

    Also metal types available, probably some plastic ones, too…

    I don’t think Nancy minds. Her boyfriend cared enough about her to cook for her and remembered dessert.
