Old fashioned quick Maltese Ice Cream made with evaporated milk

I remember this ice cream from my childhood, something quick that everyone made using evaporated milk.  You can simply leave out the cinnamon and dried fruits or you can adapt the same recipe to a flavour of your choice.

You will need

1 large tin [410ml] evaporated milk
4 tablespoons sugar [or stevia]
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
vanilla
3 tablespoons glace cherries,cut in half
100 g nuts of your choice
1 tablespoon candied fruit [konfettura]
2 tablespoons dark chocolate, roughly chopped
2 teaspoons gelatin powder

On gentle heat, dissolve the sugar in the evaporated milk. Do not allow to boil.
Place the gelatin in a container and add 4 tablespoons of the warm milk and stir until the gelatin powder dissolves. Add to the milk mixture. Stir and remove from heat. Add the vanilla and cinnamon powder and allow to cool. Freeze overnight and then the next day beat with an electric mixer using a balloon whisk and beat on high speed until the mixture doubles in size. Add the cherries, nuts, candied fruit and dark chocolate. Fold in gently and pour into a container. Place in the freezer overnight.
