This is a delicious adult ice cream that is best made with a high quality vanilla ice cream. Use raisins or sultanas and your favourite dark rum. A pinch of cinnamon wouldn't hurt along with the nutmeg, either!
This was very easy to make and delicious. I did chop the raisans into smaller pieces. The alcohol does change the consistency of the ice cream but it's still very good. Next time I make this, I may puree the raisans with the rum and then add to the ice cream. - 24 Mar 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Really an easy and great recipe. My husband is the rum raisin expert and gave this 5 stars. I had never had it before and liked it well enough. I used homemade vanilla ice cream and just added the soaked raisins (I gave them a whirl in my food processor first) and only half the rum with the ice cream during the last five minutes in the churn. After 24 hours in the freezer I left it on the counter for about 5 minutes and it was super soft thanks to the alcohol. Thank you very much for the recipe. - 05 Dec 2015 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
