2 cups water, divided
1 cup evaporated cane juice, or cane sugar, or light brown sugar, or granulated sweetener of choice (not stevia)

- Place 2 cups ice cubes into large bowl; set smaller bowl on top of ice cubes; pour ice cream mixture into inset bowl; set aside 15 minutes, or until cooled.
- Pour preparation into 1-1/2-quart (6 cup) ice cream maker; freeze according to manufacturer's instructions.

Up to 1 cup of any berry or diced fruit can be folded in at the end of step 2. Blueberries make an excellent ice cream, as do peaches.
To use a seeded fruit such as raspberries: wash and drain fresh or frozen berries; place into saucepan set over medium heat; cook 8 minutes; pour the hot liquid through a fine mesh strainer or sieve as you add the liquid to the bowl of a food processor or blender, removing as many seeds as possible; proceed with recipe as stated.
