I made this a couple of times now and it turns out good. I used old raisins the first time and they were dry even after soaking in rum. I recommend using a fresh package of raisins. Also the raisins tended to sink to the bottom of the container. So you should stir up the ice cream after about 3-4 hours in the freezer to distribute the raisins better.

My father's favorite ice cream was Haagen-Dazs Rum Raisin. After I made Nigella Lawson's no churn coffee ice cream, I thought this would be a good way to make rum raisin ice cream. It is very easy to make and if you like rum it tastes great. I used Myers Dark Rum, but I suppose it would work with whichever kind of rum you prefer.
