I hope you all enjoyed a fun and festive holiday. We made homemade ice cream this weekend. Did you?
Homemade ice cream is as American as hot dogs, apple pie or baseball. Nothing will cool you on a hot summer day as well as a nice bowl of homemade ice cream. Be careful; brain freeze is a hazard of gobbling too quickly.
My recipe was given to us by an old family friend and is very yummy. I changed the recipe a bit. Here's my recipe, which makes 4 quarts.
Homemade Ice Cream
2 cups sugar (I used 1 1/2 C brown sugar and 1/2 C white)
6 cups milk
4 cups half & half (I used 1 can sweetened condense milk, 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream and the rest half & half)
2 tablespoons Vanilla
Beat eggs thoroughly, add sugar and mix together, then add the rest of the ingredients. Pour into the chilled freezer can and freeze per manufacturer's directions.
Hope to see you on the 17th!
