Ingredients

1 cup (about 6 ounces) coarsely chopped dried plums
1/4 cup Armagnac
2 cups whipping cream
2 cups milk
1 cup sugar
10 egg yolks
Dried Plum Financiers (see recipe)


Directions

In small non-reactive bowl, combine dried plums and Armagnac; set aside. In heavy medium saucepan, heat cream, milk and sugar over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes or until hot, stirring constantly to dissolve sugar. (Do not boil.) In medium bowl, whisk egg yolks to blend. Gradually whisk in 1 cup of the hot cream mixture; return to saucepan.

Cook over medium-low heat 8 to 10 minutes or until slightly thickened and mixture coats the back of a spoon, stirring constantly. (Do not boil or mixture may curdle.) Pour through strainer into clean bowl; stir in dried plum mixture. Freeze in ice cream maker according to manufacturer?s directions. Serve with Dried Plum Financieres (see recipe).
