Old Fashioned Coffee Ice Cream Recipe

Practical Housewifery (1874)

Creamy Coffee

3 pints of cream. 1 cup favorite black coffee -- very strong and clear. 2 cups sugar. 2 tablespoonfuls arrowroot wet up with cold milk. Heat half the cream nearly to boiling; stir in the sugar, and when this is melted, the coffee, then the arrowroot.

Boil all together five minutes, stirring constantly. When cold, beat up very light, whipping in the rest of the cream by degrees. Then freeze in ice cream churn.

I cannot say certainly that this can be frozen without turning (churning), although I see no reason why it should not, since the arrowroot gives it the consistency of custard.
